Mistakes Matter

In the Jo Boaler class, https://mondaymathmessage.wordpress.com/2013/06/04/summer-professional-development/ we are learning about the importance of mistakes when learning mathematics.  Making and correcting mistakes that involve deep thinking actually causes more synapses to grow in the brain.  We were asked to design a poster for our classroom that will help students see the value of mistakes and let students know that mistakes are OK, even expected.  My poster is interactive.  Students and adults will use post-it notes to add their mistakes and new understanding to the poster.  Mistakes Poster
