Mathematical dispositions have been of interest to teachers for many years. For students to develop knowledge and flexibility in their thinking, they must have the confidence to take initiative and risks in their learning. The curriculum packed classroom context often has explicit teaching strategies for math knowledge and tools, but students beliefs, attitudes and values can often be left behind. In this interactive presentation, participants will have the opportunity to explore examples of mathematical disposition teaching from a secondary education context. While reflecting on their own practices and mathematical mindset, participants will discover how teaching dispositions engages students and prepares them for maths and numeracy in the real world.
