TESS-I Building mathematical resilience – similarity and congruency in triangles

The Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Developing Mathematical Resilience – the papers presented at the conference in 2022 showing how mathematical resilience is being developed in all sectors of education and in countries across the globe.

Developing Mathematical Resilience – this document outlines how we see the construct of mathematical resilience and how those that are helping others learn mathematics can help learners grow their resilience and their learning.

The Growth Zone Model – a diagram that helps learners understand their feelings as they approach learning mathematics and gives them the language to explain how they are feeling and get the support they need.
