    Try to understand these topics:
    1) What is a growth mindset ?
    A growth mindset focuses on DEVELOPMENT of ability to pass a challenge, or GROWTH of abilities. –> “I love a challenge!”

    2) What is a fixed mindset ?
    A fixed mindset focuses on JUDGEMENT of current (right now) ability to pass or fail a challenge. –> “Run from difficulty”.

    3) What did students who pushed out of their comfort zone to learn something hard experience ?
    The neurons in their brain formed new stronger connections and over time they became smarter with improved math grades.

    4) What did students who did not push out of their comfort zone to learn something hard experience ?
    They did not become smarter and their math grades declined.

    5) What did the worst students change to become the best students ?
    The meaning of Effort and Difficulty were transformed:
    Before: Effort and Difficulty made them feel dumb, made them feel like giving up.
    After: Effort and Difficulty engage their neurons and made them feel like they were getting smarter.

    6) What can the teacher reward to help the student develop a growth mindset ?
    Praise the Process. Reward the use of Effort, Strategy, Focus, Perseverance and Progress instead of getting answers correct right now.
    In the math game which rewarded these areas, all of these areas increased over time including more perseverance when they encountered difficulties.
    Teach students that by pushing out of their comfort zone they can form new neural connections and become smarter.
