I think almost every class has them….the kids who hate math, feel like they can’t do math, don’t want to have to do their math, don't even want to be in math class…the “mathaphobes”!

I know that not everyone is going to like math and that I can’t change everyone’s opinion…but I make it a goal to get my students to like coming to math class. Some students may never enjoy the actual process of math computations, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t look forward to coming to math class each day. To me, getting kids to like coming to my class is the first step towards opening their minds to learning new mathematical concepts. Sooo…how do I get kids to like math class?

The majority of my students play sports and are very competitive, and almost all of my students play video games and/or computer games in their spare time. It was pretty easy for me to find what got my students interested and having fun in my class…games and humor! So students will be asked to practice their skills online, using both online quizzes and games. When they tell you they are just "playing games" at school, they are right! However, they are learning too! I hope you hear that they like math class this year! ~Mrs.Goffnett
