    Math Homework

    • 558 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Yes, I am the girl that everyone goes to with his or her math homework. Why? My affection for numbers is just to unreal to put into words. The emotion I get in a math class than just in any ordinary English or social studies class can come shocking to others, but not to me. The happiness I get inside when I have solved an equation is like a little kid getting their favorite candy on Halloween. In math there is always a solution to a problem unless of course it does not exist. This made me realize how math relates to the way the world works. When you are trying to solve a problem you are given an equation and sometimes data that you have to extrapolate numbers from to find your solution. Just like in life when you have a problem you look for something that can help you or a goal you have set for yourself to solve your problem, which would be your equation, and the work you will do to fix the problem will be the work you show to come up with your product or how to solve your problem in real life.

A major obstacle I faced is when my parents got a divorce. I was fairly naïve and youthful, therefore I didn’t understand why this arrangement would make everything better, but it surprisingly did. I lived the best of both worlds and got what you would get from any ordinary family times two. After getting used to it, it…

    One of the main criteria I would use to evaluate the suitability of a specific simulation is whether or not the simulation involves higher order thinking. One of the traits that “differentiates gifted students from their age peers is their exceptional capacity to perceive information and use it productively” (Parks, 2009, p. 261). As a teacher, we are “challenged to select or design instruction to teach reasoning processes that are abstract, sometimes requiring a technical understanding of…

    with the Logo turtle on screen in sixth grade was my first exposure to computer science. I was immediately fascinated by the idea of approximating a smooth circle with a regular polygon of, say, 360 sides. Staring at the “circle” on screen, I could not quite digest the fact that it was something produced in a fundamentally different way compared to the one I could draw with a pair of compasses, though neither of which was ever close to being the perfect, mathematical circle that probably does…
