**Goals:**

- Students identify their own mindset in math and explain that one of the goals of the math course will be learning how to shift to a growth mindset through practice.
- Students build and explain the learning norms in the class, and act in accordance with them to support the idea that everyone can learn math to the highest level.
- Students chunk, change, and connect (or look for structure in) mathematical representations to think like mathematicians and use it to approach problems. Students will be introduced to an instructional routine, Contemplate then Calculate, which can be used throughout the year.
