Math Mindset Camp

Girl on Computer

South Lake Schools in partnership with the Macomb Intermediate School District is offering a summer math camp for students entering 6th, 7th or 8th grade who believe mathematics is not their strength. Our goal is to communicate the brain research to math students and teach them through an approach that is open, creative and visual. The term “growth mindset” comes from the work of Carol Dweck. Her studies show that everyone holds ideas about their own potential. Students with a fixed mindset are those who are more likely to give up easily, whereas students with a growth mindset are those who keep on going even when work is hard, and who are persistent.
