Can Everyone Do Math?

Activity 2: Respond


Please respond to the following:
  1. What are your impressions of Willingham’s article?
  2. People accept that if you lift weights, you get stronger. If you practice playing an instrument, you get better, but people tend to have an all-or-nothing attitude toward math — you’re either a math person or not. How would Willingham regard that view?
  3. How does your cultural background influence your experience with and view of mathematics?

Activity 3: Reflect in Your Journal


Have you changed your mind in any way to your response in the initial survey? Why or why not?
