Real-World Math Skills

We are born mathematicians!

If math is supposed to come naturally to us, why do so many people feel anxious when it comes to this subject?

If you take a minute to think about it, we use some form of mathematics every single day of our lives to walk, drive, schedule, measure, budget, design, plot, compare, average, cook, use money, count, craft, shop, sew and many other things.

I believe one way to solve the problem of math anxiety is to remove testing from the equation and replace it with exploration and experimentation, this way people can make their own math discoveries. When an individual is ready to tackle the more formal versions of math, they may find this subject a little bit easier to understand.

Having the opportunity to build real-world math skills is easier and less stressful than most people would believe. Here are some of the topics that can be found within this site.
