Quickfire: Mathography 8/15


New blogs are always a little bare. Usually you start by saying a little about yourself and why you are starting a blog in the first place. Since "because my math teacher told me to" is a little boring, you are going to write about you and math. I'm calling it a "Mathography." A combination of a biography and math.


Please read these examples of other peoples mathographies. Not all are high school students, but they should give you an idea of what types of things to write about.


Your mathography should be in paragraph form. Begin by writing about yourself. Then, write about your math experiences.The letter should address the four general prompts below. You should write at least one complete paragraph for each topic, giving you at least four paragraphs.The questions provided are suggestions to help you get started. You do not have to address them specifically. They are there only to help you think about the prompt.

About You: Give me some general information about yourself that would help me get to know you.
What are your interests, talents and hobbies? What are your goals and dreams? What are you proud of? Are there other languages spoken by your family?

You as a Student: Tell me about yourself as a student in general.
Overall, what are you like as a student? What are your academic strengths and weaknesses? Are you organized? What are your favorite courses, and what do you like about them?

You As a Math Student: How do you feel about math?
Describe your math memories from as early as you can. Do you have a favorite math memory? What experiences in math have you liked? Why? What experiences in math have you not liked? Why not?

You as a Student in THIS Class: Why are you taking this class?
How do you feel about taking the class? What do you think this class is about? What kind of a grade do you hope to get? What can you do to earn that grade?


Post your mathography on your blog with the title "Mathography" and tweet the link to it with the hashtag #RHSIM1
