How to Get Better at Math
Math. You either love it or hate it. My own relationship with math has been on and off again, but mostly off.
Over the years, I’ve had many conversations with my students about their struggles with math. They say things like: “I suck at math” and “I’m not a math person” or “I’m good at writing not math.”
I’ve know other students who feel like they totally understand the content being covered in class, but despite this totally bomb the test.
What’s that about?
I know that used to happen to me. I would track along with what my professor during class. Do fine on the homework. But when it came time for the exam, I would have no idea how to work the problems and barely pass.
I’ve since learned that like writing, math is nothing more than a skill that anyone can learn with a little time and practice.
