I have a right to make mistakes, erase then, and try again (Failure points to what I have not learned yet)

I have the right to ask for help (asking for help is a great decision)

I have the right to ask questions when I don't understand (understanding is the primary goal)

I have the right to ask questions until I understand (perseverance is priceless)

I have the right to receive help and not feel stupid for receiving it (asking for help is natural)

I have the right to not like some math concepts or disciplines (i.e. trigonometry, statistics, differential equations, etc.)

I have the right to define success as learning no matter how I feel about Math or supporters

I have the right to reduce negative self-talk & feelings

I have the right to be treated as a person capable of learning

I have the right to assess a helper's ability to help me understand.
