These words by the great nonconformist, he said "By all means , see things from the other person's point of view- but always act upon your own point of view. "
My conviction is never to follow. I am proud to say I experience no terror for being different.

In light of the massive numbers of collge students taking college algebra as their final math class of their lives in college. I realized I love my job but I hate certain things about it. It takes you to dislike something to change it I have found... This is what I would change about the math cirriculum.
Freshman year: begining mans on...(cooperative learning rules are set)
Sphomore year: service learning hands on...(cooperative learning)
Junior year: project driven (cooperative learning)
Senior year: College algebra prep to reduce number of "can't do calculus students". apon conclusion use a real world example across cirriculum. A student should be able to read the newspaper and create a chart(visual) in order to test exponential and algebraic skills. Interpreting what you read and verbalizing, sharing, and learning from oneself.

If a student is defeated before they start an equation then I let them know that speed doesn't matter and mistakes are not a sign of weakness. I often think of my past mistakes, and reflect on how I corrected them. I wasn't sure how to correct everything but "sometimes you have to jump and build the wings on the way down. " Kobi Yamada
Then fly to a resolution you desire to live with.
