There are many keys to math learning and enjoyment. While I offer only a few of them, as we learn together, we may find ourselves opening new doorways. During our consultation session, I will ask you which keys you would like to try. This is a unique opportunity to deepen your interest and enjoyment of math. If you’ve struggled with math anxiety or wonder why you should even bother to study it, this may be the place to start.
Applying Math to Everyday Life
What life situations fascinate you? In particular, what specific applications of your mathematical studies would you be interested in further exploring? Based on your current studies, we will decide some applications of the concepts that intrigue you and work through them together.
Investigations and Explorations
Understanding the why
Do you ever wonder how a certain math concept originated? We can dig into the concept from a variety of angles to discover the answer.
Depth and Variety of Exercises
Math - Mix it up to keep it fresh
Are you getting bored with doing hundreds of problems for each chapter you’re studying? What if we simplified that? Let’s just do a few problems with various levels of difficulty from each section. Maybe we could learn the concept just as well.
Use math in your hobbies for better understanding
What are your hobbies and interests? Could we incorporate these interests with any math concepts that we’re studying together or not even studying right now? Why don’t we ask a question you’re interested in about these and discover if we can use math to answer it.
Let’s ask some questions together to reflect on what we’re learning for better understanding: What’s making the most sense? What confuses you right now? How could this concept be applied to a life situation? We could ask ourselves many different questions to learn more.
Everythng is fixable
Who says making mathematical mistakes is a bad thing? Actually, it helps our brain expand and learn, even if we don’t actually know we’re making a mistake. Let’s do difficult exercises, understand complex material and make mistakes in the process. It will only increase our learning and enjoyment.
