For some of us, math is something we just don't get and we struggle with it throughout middle and high school. It is hard for us to connect math to the real world and we find it useless and a waste of time. It stresses us out and causes anxiety. However, there is a connection between math and the real world. We use math in our everyday lives. We use it when we are creating a household budget, when we are cooking, when we are planning a trip, etc... What we need to change is our approach to…Continue

I remember my senior year of high school... I did not have a clue what college I would enroll at. All I knew is that I was going because I wanted to make something of my self. There were so many colleges to choose from and I didn’t have the money nor did my parents have the time to take…Continue

I could really use some help with multiplying and dividing fractions. It has been a very long time since I was in school and I cannot recall the way I was taught to solve these problems. My daughter is needing help so if someone can show me how to work out these two problems I'm hoping I'll remember how to do them.

10. Use technology to keep families informed. These days, more is better when it comes to family communications. It would be nice if you could call every parent every day to update them but who has the time? For homework, tests, field trips, important events and general information, take advantage of what's out there. I had a web site that was very effective and made my job a lot easier. Today, I'd be using Twitter.
9. Use the phone to discuss sensitive…Continue

I remembered back then when I was in elementary, my favorite subject is always Algebra. Our teacher always give contests where we could join. But they're no ordinary contests. Our teacher is always strict, if you volunteered to answer and you didn't get it right, you should try until you get it right.
Before I always complain about those contests, but not until I entered high school. I realized then that I was more practiced of Algebra because of those contests, I even got a…Continue
