For me, it's different. I have always loved math, even when it is challenging. For my essay, I will write about whether Math biography not I consider myself good at math, my good and bad experiences in math, and what I hope to accomplish this year in math class. Usually Math is the first homework I work on.
I guess the reason I do that is because I love math and because I think I am a pretty decent math student. I usually I know what to do.
I especially like Math biography Algebra because it is filled with proportions and multiplication. Those are my favorite areas in math. I guess I started loving math when I was in elementary school. I was great, and some students in my class were really good too, so there was always a little competition.
We would always get multiplication sheets and I was always finishing them quickly, along with some of the other proficient math students.
In a way, those kind of competitions were fantastic for me. I was motivated to do well on them. The students also pushed me to be great even if they didn't realize it. When I got to middle school, the math got harder and I began to slack off a bit.
I was frustrated because it wasn't as easy as it used to be, especially in seventh grade my teacher at that time explained things and moved on to different areas very quickly, so I guess I couldn't really understand some of the topics. I have problems with probability and word problems I still need a little help with those topics.
Anyhow, I had an excellent teacher in 8th grade. She explained the topics at an understandable pace and I really did well in that class.
The grade on my report card was much better, and I did very well on the state test. I was really proud of that. What I hope to accomplish this year in math is that I continue to improve like I did in 8th grade.
I know I will ask for help if I need it instead of acting like I know what I am doing in seventh grade, that was a really big problem. Math was and still is my favorite subject. I hope I will have only good experiences in 9th grade!
In this essay i will be describing my highs and lows with math over the past 9 years.
The highs of my math career is when i achieved the highest score i have ever gotten which was a My math teacher also helped me become more motivated because she taught math in a way that i could relate to. This was in my 8th grade year of middle school, this was the year that i achieved the highest grades that i have ever scored in my whole math career.
Some of my lows points in math happened during 6th grade when i received a 50 as a finally grade in math this was an awful time in my life because i was disappointed in me and so was my mother.
I believe that i wasn't used to the teaching curricular at my school therefore i tended to fall behind, but i decided to get a tutor to help me with my math struggles. I think that i will have a good experiences in Algerbra 1 because i can now easily adapt to new learning style being as though i am older and know a lot more about math than i did in 6th grade.
A good experience I've had with math is just always doing well in math and getting good grades on tests. Another good experience is when I got a good grade on the SHSAT, but a bad experience is I didn't get a well enough grade to get into any specialized high schools. Getting bad grades is always a bad experience because its a bad grade and i feel really bad that I didn't study hard enough or I slacked off.
I hope to get a better or same grade as I did last year in math.Books shelved as mathematical-biography: The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan by Robert Kanigel, John Von Neumann by Norman Macrae.
