World Maths Day is the first Wednesday in March. What is your opinion about math? Do you like the subject or is it one you struggle with? Explain your answer.
I struggled with math. My mother knows addition and subtraction. When the school started teaching me multiplication and division, she was lost. I passed until the 9th grade when I wasn’t retaining the information they provided me. I had to go back and redo multiplication and the other. Algebra I learned when I went and got my GED. First semester of college I was going well with my developmental algebra until a death in the family caused me to miss to many days. Math is hard for me but it is necessary.
What is your favorite way to eat an Oreo cookie? Do you separate them, dunk them, pop them whole in your mouth, or avoid them altogether? Explain why you answered as you did.
I love oreos. I love dunking them in the milk and watching the bubbles float to the top. Then when the bubbles stop and it starts crumbling away I eat it whole. Or I just put a bunch of cookies in a glass and pour milk on them. Wait till they stop bubbling and eat them with spoons.
Paul Revere’s engraving of the Boston Massacre was an extraordinary piece of propaganda. Explain why should we be wary of eyewitness accounts of major news stories?
Because everyone puts their own personal spin on things. Gather five people that has just seen the same thing or heard the same thing, ask them one by one what they saw and each one will add something. The basics of the story stay the same but there is always that something extra.
