Please share your attitudes and beliefs about mathematics and what your mathematical experiences mean to you, both forlearning and teaching mathematics. Some ideas to start are:

  • your mathematical strengths and weaknesses
  • successes and frustrations
  • concerns about this class or your future teaching mathematics
  • your philosophy of what mathematics is, how it should be taught, and how it is best learned

Your journal should be at least 3 pages, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins and font Arial 12. Please do NOT use aheader or a cover sheet. Only put your name and title of the homework at the top of the page. Save your document as a Wordperfect, Word, or RTF file.
