Looking for Something to Do This Summer?

Found a great new app that I thought would come in real handy especially for those of you out there that need help with basic math facts. In my opinion, the best part of playing this game is it will decrease the amount of time it takes to do basic math facts which in turn will make your math homework take less time.  That’s a win-win in my book.

This app can only be downloaded onto a phone but the good news is it is free!  Check it out by clicking here!

 

Why Math?

Why does math seem so hard?  I get that question all the time in AVID Tutorial.  Math is more than just solving, it’s about understanding math concepts.  Math, today, is teaching us how to think.  Today, math is teaching the how and why not just the what. Math is an incredibly important skill we all need to learn.

Math should be an equal mix of procedure (how to solve the problem) and problem solving (how can we use the problem).  Learning to think is a crucial skill that will be used over and over again in your lifetime.  People need to be inventive, people need to be able to see a problem and find a solution.  Not just in math but in life.  So next time you are in math class or AVID tutorial.  Keep a positive attitude when it comes to math.  Math is not easy but it is probably one of the most important classes you will ever take.
