Many students arrive in college with a fixed idea of what math is and convinced that they are not good at it. Brigitte Lahme, professor and chair, and Nick Dowdall, stretch program coordinator, along with colleagues in the department of mathematics and statistics at Sonoma State University, have incorporated strategies for helping students to develop a mathematical growth mindset in year-long, entry-level math courses. In this interactive webcast, they share examples of activities and targeted interventions that provide students with experiences to help them change their beliefs to​:​​​

  • Math is a collaborative endeavor.
  • Making mistakes is essential to learning.

Dr. Daniel Reinholz, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at San Diego State University, presents EQUIP (Equity Quantified in Participation), a web app tool that tracks student engagement in an effort to help teachers be more intentional when eliciting participation and responding to student ideas. The tool has been featured in Education Week and in Inside Higher Ed’s Academic Minute. This webcast includes a description of the research behind EQUIP and provides a practical how-to for instructors, professional developers, and researchers to use the tool to improve equity in student participation.
