Message from Mrs. Lougheed

Welcome to a fantastic year of learning at J.L. Mitchener!

Our focus for this year is M. A. T. H. We’re going to learn math, talk about math, build with math, communicate our ideas about math….. it’s all about the M A T H!

Here are 7 beliefs we have about Math:

1)       Everyone can learn math to a high level

2)      Mistakes in Math are very valuable, when we work to understand our mistakes our brain actually GROWS   (What??? You don’t celebrate your mistakes?  We do.)

3)      Asking questions about our Math and asking other people about their thoughts about Math is really important

4)      Math is about creativity and making sense, not just learning procedures

5)      Math is about connections and communicating:  we can represent math with words pictures, graphs and build structures as engineers and scientists do

6)      Thinking deeply about Math is so much better than being speedy

7)      Math takes time to learn…. If we keep at it we will definitely get it, we just don’t have it “YET”.  Let’s celebrate what we do know and then build on it.*
