I know it has been a minute but whoa has time flown by... here is the latest Math Memoir from someone who isn't on anyone's radar as a "math person" but helps us to see that we are all math persons since we do math even when we don't realize it and sometimes when we do and we are working on something fun. This is from Emily Haxton, Junior AP English Language & Composition and Sophomore Honors English, at Lewis & Clark High School in Spokane, Washington, USA. I think it’s safe to say that most people assume English teachers are not the best math students. I’ve actually heard my colleagues say as much, so it’s no wonder the stereotype exists. But I am an English teacher who embraces math in my classroom. It can be extremely helpful for some of my concrete-sequential learners to think about language structures and arguments as formulas, so I’m often coming up with math analogies to help solidify their understanding. Since I’m comfortable with math conc
When I was in 6th grade, I hated math. We were studying the lateral are of different figured and I felt like I coulf understand a thing because my teacher was HORRRIBLE. Years past and I started liking algebra but nothing really special until last semester of 8th grade where a new math teacher came to our school who totally changed my view towards math. Since 9th grade, some friends and I became really interested in math and we constantly asked this new teacher to show us more math (he is a matematician, currently getting his master in physics so he rocks). Eventually, we created the math in our school. It was sooo cool to have like minded people solvig problems and learning more advanced stuff. We, well, did not win anything due to *stuff* but it was an awesome experience and I actually got through all rounds in the National Olympiad but I could not particiapte in the last one so yeah, I won nothing hehe.I am currently in my 2nd semester of Electrical Engineering.
