Mathematics is the subject that I do not like. As I looked back on my personal history with math I found that I saw some patterns that related to why it was that I might feel that way about math and things that I can do in my own classroom to help ensure that my students enjoy math. 1. At my elementary school there were events throughout the year that were called ‘The Principal’s Challenge.” These events involved successful completion of a particular task and a reward for doing so. Tasks covered a range of subjects, thus giving everyone the chance to be successful. One such challenge was completing the count-bys (2,4,6…3,6,9) with two through ten as fast as you could (the twos going to twenty, the threes to thirty, etc.). I remember being extremely nervous for this challenge. I was a little unsure about math, but all of my friends were participating in the challenge and I did not want to be left out. In the end, I successfully completed the challenge. It felt great! My confidence was definitely boosted. This experience shows me the importance of giving kids the chance to succeed in math
