Students should do mathematical work that is challenging with feedback and any needed scaffolding. Students should have the opportunity to demonstrate understanding in different ways. High expectations are key.
Students should see the power of mathematics and understand how mathematical knowledge is relevant to their current and future lives.
When students know that their teacher believes in them, cares about them, and wants them to succeed it makes all the difference.
