I really liked the investigations we did during class. The questions kept me learning and engaged. When the teacher lectured I was able to understand. I also got more and more comfortable in explaining my solutions and liked seeing mathematics from different viewpoints.

Before this class I thought math was just about memorizing rules. This is the first time I’ve been able to understand the word problems. This class is making me a better thinker in all my classes. I now expect ideas to make sense and know that I am smart enough to figure things out instead of waiting for teachers to tell me what to do.
