Abstract: The Math Minds partnership strives to increase student engagement, self-esteem and achievement in mathematics and also to deepen teachers’ conceptual understanding of mathematics for instruction. Through this partnership, elementary teachers are changing the way they teach mathematics. By breaking concepts into small steps, continually assessing all children for understanding along the way and giving opportunities for independent “practice” frequently during each lesson, students have shown a significant improvement in mathematics. We present the transformative learning experience of one teacher during one year in this partnership, with surprising results.
