The Growth Mindset thread pointed out that often we see the right answer as the goal of math. This issue came up in several responses. I think context is everything. Math, on the job and in application during the day is absolutely 100% about getting the right answer. That is the ending goal. Learning math is a different process. I think we need students to understand the difference between the two, but no classroom should lose focus that the end result is people who get the right answer, not people who understand the concepts but fail many times on getting the right answer. How can we ensure that students learn the difference between the process of learning and the end goal of doing?
