Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff The New Psychology of Success (2000), Dweck developed a continuum upon which people can be placed, based upon their understandings about where ability comes from. For some people (at one end of said continuum), success (and failure) is based on innate ability (or the lack of it). Deck describes this as a fixed theory of intelligence, and argues that this gives rise to a ‘fixed mindset’. At the other end of the continuum are those people who believe success is based on a growth mindset. These individuals argue that success is based on learning, persistence and hard work. According to Dweck:
The Math Learning Center The Number Rack (also known as Rekenrek) facilitates the natural development of children’s number sense. Rows of moveable, colored beads encourage learners to think in groups of fives and tens, helping them to explore and discover a variety of addition and subtraction strategies. This virtual version of the manipulative is an open-ended educational tool, ideal for elementary classrooms and other learning environments that use laptops, iPads, or Chromebooks.

The most common physical dice have 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 20 faces respectively, with 6-faced die comprising the majority of dice. This virtual dice roller can have any number of faces and can generate random numbers simulating a dice roll based on the number of faces and dice. A dice is typically a small, throwable object that has multiple faces (most commonly six) and possible positions that indicate a number (or something else), used for generating random numbers and events. They are typically used for tabletop games, which include a wide variety of games, as well as for gambling. Examples of tabletop games that involve the use of dice include games like backgammon, Boggle, and Yahtzee, where dice are a central component of the game.

Mathematical Modelling These virtual math manipulatives support teachers to model abstract mathematical concepts for deeper student comprehension. Similar to manipulatives that have been used for decades by teachers in classrooms, these online math manipulatives for elementary school classrooms offer numerous advantages while retaining the benefits of the classic manipulatives. According to Moyer, Niezgoda, and Stanley (2005): “Virtual manipulatives are uniquely suited for teaching mathematics with young children. A Web connection makes them free of charge and easily available.
Math Mathematics is one of the fundamental 3Rs of early education. Known as “arithmetic” in those levels, it involves counting and the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. As kids advance through the grade levels, they progressively deal with more complex mathematical problems. Also, more new concepts get introduced as they progress. For the most part, math is a lot about problem-solving. Jazz music, an African American art form - African American Registry Jazz music, an African American art form The Superior JazzBand, 1910 On this date, we focus on Jazz Music in America and the Black culture's role in creating and influence its existence.
