Chapter 12: Developing Persistent and Flexible Problem Solvers with a Growth Mindset. Jennifer Suh (George Mason University), Stacy Graham (Boalsburg Elementary School), Terry Ferrarone (Mamaroneck Schools), Gwen Kopeinig (Lewisboro Elementary School), and Brooke Bertholet (Qingdao No. 1 International School of Shandong Province, Shandong, China) describe a design research study where teachers and a mathematics educator focused on creating classroom norms that fostered persistent and flexible problem solvers. Building a community of mathematics inquiry focused on a growth mindset and developing students’ mathematical disposition encouraged students to embrace mathematical challenges and to persist in setbacks while working individually and collectively through the problem-solving process.
