If you don’t learn French in French class, they don’t say you’re not “French-minded.” Why do we say kids are not “math-minded?”Should math class be more like math-land and Squeakland ?

How does your school encourage mathematics engagement?
Reflect curiosity and wonder —
Go boldly and scatter seeds of kindness…
