**What content/skills have been most interesting to you?**

I really enjoyed finding the area of triangles, partly because of all of the steps used to find the area or perimeter (my favorite being the 30, 60, 90 rule and using pythagorean theorem). At first I found this concept extremely hard to understand. I didn’t know how to solve for area or apply content learned from past units to solve specific problems, all because I missed the day that we learned all of the methods that could be used. Yet with a lot of hard work and from the help of a tutor I was able to catch up AND actually have fun!

How have you grown mathematically?

How have you grown mathematically?

Aside from the obvious (which is that I now know how to find the area of different two dimensional shapes), and what I explained before, I feel that I have grown not only skill-wise, but I have grown in confidence. I know that it doesn’t sound like something that one needs when solving a math problem, but confidence makes all the difference. If one knows how to solve a problem, but isn’t confident that what they know is the right way to solve said problem (even though it is) that person will question their own reliability. With confidence however, you know that your answer is the right answer and you can count on it... Unless it’s not the right answer, in which case you do need to question your reliability.
