:The purpose of this study was to examine parent-teacher communication and what impact it had on a student’s mathematical mindset. Previous research has shown that parent involvement impacts student achievement, generates positive attitudes towards learning and school, and increases communication between child and parents. This mixed-methods research project examined student attitudes towards math and whether they identified with a growth or fixed mindset. Parents were surveyed on communication regarding their child’s math homework and curriculum. Findings revealed that parent-teacher communication did not directly impact a student’s mathematical mindset. Parents did report increased school-to-parent communication.
