# Being Resilient - Lower Primary Students

*Being Resilient - Lower Primary is part of our Being a Good Thinker - Lower Primary collection.*

Good thinkers are resilient. They don't give up easily, and are motivated to work hard and keep going when faced with challenges. They recognise that we all fail sometimes, and when this happens, they bounce back and try alternative approaches.

How can you become a resilient mathematician?

Here are some problems that may require some determination. The solutions may not be immediately obvious, so you will need to persevere. Success can be sweeter after a struggle!
