• In a brief survey at the end of last year, I asked my students, "What is the most important thing this class taught you?" In addition to the many responses of "math" or "pre-algebra" many students answered the question this way:
     
    "This class taught me.....
    • that hard work pays off." 
    • that I need to be responsible for my work."
    • how to use my time wisely."
    • how to be organized."
    • how to achieve a goal you set."
    • that listening to others is always going to pay off in a way."
    • that I should never be afraid to ask questions."
    • how to think things through thoroughly."
    • that the way I learn can change, and I can be good."
