You can't be a mathlete if you don't show your work! Coach Field can be pretty intense, but take a listen to hear what he has to say about the impact of not showing your work.
We don't Google our math. That is not how you learn to do math. Develop and maintain healthy study habits and you'll go far!
Math class is the perfect place to learn to ask good questions. Professionals are set apart by the type and quality of questions they ask, by what they ask about, and by their courage to ask the questions they have.
Homework is essential to learning. Taking time to reflect, practice, and retrieve what you've been taught is arguably the most important part of the learning process. Forget to do your homework and you may not learn anything and have to start from the beginning again!
Coach Noah appears to be just as passionate as his father about developing healthy learning habits! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this case.
As a math teacher, it is inevitable to observe cheating during the school year. But, where does that behavior lead? Not to good places. Turn around and do some honest work! It's the best thing to do.
Indicators are the beginning of identifying a problem and a solution. But, they can be ignored and the problem can become worse. When we get things wrong in math, let's share that out and let it be a step on our learning journey rather than an embarrassment or something to hide. We all make mistakes, share them out and get them fixed! (And take your car to a mechanic if the check engine light illuminates!)
Don't ever be afraid to make a difference. Or don't ever think the difference you made was insignificant. That's not something we know right away. We just have to always do the best we can!
Think of State Testing as GAME DAY! Come prepared and ready to do your best. It's you versus the test and as long as you give it your best, you can leave that testing room with no regrets.
