      With the decrease of mathematical achievement amongst high school freshmen, and the lack of passion for mathematics; it has become crucial to determine the skills teachers can implement into their classroom in order to better serve the needs of their students and their academic achievement. Research has shown a positive trend for teaching students foundational skills, such as strategic note-taking, implementation of their notes, collaborative work and practiced study habits. This curriculum project was intended to develop a growth mindset in the high school mathematics classroom, while preparing students for their most successful education through the evolution of foundational skills, specifically note-taking. Future investigations can be processed to determine the effectiveness of these foundational interventions. [from author's abstract]
