Task 1: Literature Review

To demonstrate your understanding of, and apply the research on, developing positive Mathematical mindsets for active and engaged learning in Mathematics.
This task requires you to conduct a review of the research and literature shaping the thinking and practices that build mathematical mindsets.
This paper will combine the skills of researching, analysing, evaluating, synthesizing and documenting information to reflect on the effective learning and teaching of Mathematics and Numeracy in the learning areas. (Learning Outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
From the research and literature reviewed
• • •
Identify and critique the key ideas that are required for students to be successful learners in mathematics
Analyse the practices/teaching ideas that foster engagement and build mathematical mindsets
Identify challenges in building mathematical mindsets for your students and propose actions for how these can be addressed
