Lack of Mathematical Confidence
A student who lacks the ability to produce the desired result or perceives they lack the ability to do so, will be less likely to try when failure is certain.
Does the student have a fixed mindset or in rare cases a significant learning disability?
Are there a variety of opportunities and methods for students to demonstrate their mathematical understanding?
Lack of Motivation
Students may appear to be unmotivated when they have several root causes of unproductive struggle. Additionally, a student’s priorities may lead to lack of motivation in class.
Supporting Questions to Ask:
What matters to this student?
Is there a way to relate the problem to something he or she cares about, or allow them to use their talent/interest in a way that benefits the team?
