Positivity is contagious but so is negativity. If students are being negative about mathematics, it will be easy for the teacher to fall into the negativity trap.

" Educators may need to take a more proactive role in encouraging students to become excited about math and see themselves as successful, confident, mathematical problem solvers."

*Berman & Furner, 2003*

Make positive thinking a habit

Get excited about math

Involve the class in fun math activities

Put up positive and interesting math pictures

Use positive words

Believe in yourself and in your students
