As a 59 year young female, I am of the generation of girls who was told "girls don't do well in math" - and, in spite of LOVING math, I bought into the rhetoric in order to fit in - and to ensure I didn't outshine the boys.
Fast forward 45 years - it's time to re-engage my analytic and strategic thought. Mathnasium is enabling me to pursue a passion that has been mistakenly put aside. Today we revisited the "order of operation" - such fun!
NOTE: I ASK THAT, IF YOU USE MY COMMENT, PLEASE DO NOT USE MY LAST NAME. FIRST NAME AND LAST INITIAL IS FINE! THANKS.
I have already told many friends that our boys love Mathnasium!! They are excited to go each day and both feel more confident in their math abilities! The tutors at mathnasium and friendly and helpful and make math fun!
