The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship among early adolescents’ creativity (both in general and specific to mathematics), grit, and mathematics achievement—each representing an area of Sternberg’s (1984) triarchic model. We also sought to determine whether students’ self-reported grit and creativity differed as a function of gender and ethnicity.
