    In what ways do the five Math Minds principles resonate with your current views about teaching and learning mathematics? In ways do they challenge your current views? In what ways do they prompt you to think about things you may not have considered before?

    The five Math Minds principles resonate with my current view about teaching and learning mathematics in various ways. For example, I resonate with the first principle, “math tells us something about how it should be taught”, because I believe that there are many aspects of math, dynamics of learning, and responsibilities of teaching that have to be considered in mathematics. However, the second and third principles, “the brain is plastic” and “the working memory is limited” challenges what I originally thought about math. Prior to todays lesson, I did not consider how malleable the brain can be and that students can only take in so much information at one time while they are working. Thus, the principles encourage me to question some of my original outlooks regarding math and teaching in order to better reflect and support the learning of all students.
