Parish, L. (2015). Challenging the mindset of Sammy: A case study of a Grade 3 mathematically highly capable student. 477-484. Australia: Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia.
This case study narrative reports on the journey of *Sammy as her mindset as a learner of mathematics is challenged. Often students who are mathematically highly capable are viewed as being privileged, they are rarely placed with the cohort of struggling students. Children like Sammy who are mathematically highly capable or gifted, however, are simply students who learn differently and therefore require a different type of teacher support. [*Sammy is a pseudonym].
