Statement:  The greatest barrier to learning mathematics is what I call MATHitude – one’s perception of his ability to learn math. My efforts in the classroom focus on creating an environment that fosters positive MATHitude – a place where students believe they can learn math. When I succeed, so do my students. At the end we celebrate a collaborative victory. The students leave with stronger math skills and abilities and a belief they can be successful at something hard. To me, that’s a real education!
