1. Everyone Can Learn Math to the Highest Levels.
Encourage students to believe in themselves. There is no such thing as a “math”
person. Everyone can reach the highest levels they want to, with hard work. 2. Mistakes are valuable
Mistakes grow your brain! It is good to struggle
and make mistakes. 3. Questions are Really Important
Always ask questions, always answer questions.
Ask yourself: why does that make sense? 4. Math is about Creativity and Making Sense.
Math is a very creative subject that is, at its core,
about visualizing patterns and creating solution paths that others can see, discuss
and critique. 5. Math is about Connections and Communicating
Math is a connected subject, and a form of communication. Represent math in different
forms eg words, a picture, a graph, an equation, and link them. Color code! 6. Depth is much more important than speed.
Top mathematicians, such as Laurent Schwartz, think slowly and deeply. 7. Math Class is about Learning not Performing
Math is a growth subject, it takes time to learn and it is all about effort.
MathStudents are working on prealgebra in our new connected math workbook. Students are expected to model patterns and relationships with symbols. They will also be able to evaluate expressions and solve equations involving symbols. If students need help on their homework they can go to the websites Brightstorm.com, www.khanacademy.org/ or I am available to stay after school.
