Yes, I am talking to you… Even if you are not in school or working in a math-related field (although all fields are math related on some level) you should have math goals.
My math goal is simple: Keep growing mathematically! I will do this by practicing the following:
- Read books about math topics
- Work on random math problems and puzzles
- Help students learn math
- Teach a math course or lesson
- Encourage youth to work to improve their math grades
- Keep math on my mind
Now I know some of these items seem hefty for some people and that’s okay. The key is to think about what your math goals are for the upcoming year. Will you save money? Will you clip coupons? Will you take a course for fun? Will you attend a math camp? Will you improve your math grade?
There are a lot of things you can do to grow mathematically. What are your math goals for 2018?
