Math is a power issue. It is the barrier to higher education for many people. Students tend to think they don't have "math minds," but only in this country. Other cultures consider math a skill to be developed, not a genetic flaw/quirk to be accommodated.

I would like to think I am a shop teacher of sorts, helping students learn to use the math power tool in order to do whatever thinking/work they have ahead of them (or all around them). Or maybe the analogy of a driver's license - a math license - to be able to go where they want to go in the academic world, or the money world, or the philosophical world.

One of my favorite quotes is, "Mathematics is the alphabet with which God has written the universe."...Galileo. A comment that I make many times in my classes is, "Math is all around you. It is everywhere, in nature, in architecture, as we drive down the street, as we sit in our homes, etc. If you do not see or understand it, that does not mean it doesn't exist, it only means you are unaware of how it works. We must develop an understanding of how math works in our lives or we become dependent upon those who do."

In my classes, I try to discuss math in a very understandable manner with many references to the math that is present in our everyday lives, and I also attempt to present the material in a format that is understandable to most students. Learning can take place during the semester ONLY if the students work and practice what is presented. My desire is that students have not only a much greater understanding of math in general, but also a greater appreciation of the math in the universe around them.
