Paula DeAnda-Shah Instructor, Developmental Education Moraine Valley Community College
Many of our developmental mathematics students come into my courses with a history of negative experiences in mathematics that have made them believe they are not “math people.” It is my goal to create opportunities for students to experience mathematics in a positive way in order for them to change their mathematics stories. In the process, I hope that students can come to see mathematics as a necessary sense-making activity and begin to see themselves as a capable doers and learners of math. Seeing this change happen in students keeps me energized!
