Although new to WyzAnt, I have tutored mathematics for the past four years at college. One thing I notice among many students is a great deal of annoyance towards mathematics. They feel mathematics to be too abstract, rigorous, relentless, and just plain boring. Most students either prefer a subject they will end up using in "real life", or a subject that gives them a sense of wonder.
However, the amazing thing about mathematics is how truly wonderful it is for me. Most people who see my attitude towards mathematics (including others who are reasonably adept at math) find this odd or misplaced, and I fully understand their lack of sympathy. Perhaps you are one of them. But I can assure everyone reading this there is something truly mysterious about mathematics that breaches the very foundations of astonishment and awe.
Take prime numbers for example. It's pretty clear that you can take any whole number and decompose it down into a product of prime...
Here are 48 of my favorite math words in 12 groups of 4. Each group has words in it that can be thought of at the same time or are a tool for doing math.
What are your favorite math words? If you aren't sure, search for "mathematical words" and pick a few.
It is always a pleasure to help the student whenever they need it. I
prefer to help the students aiding their thought process towards the
right solution by giving similar examples and illustrations and also
trying to question them or probe them during the class. This helps in
better understanding and developing good problem solving skills; by
which he/she can attack any problem lurking in the dark during the
examination. My intention will be to enable students to take control of
their own learning.
