May 28, 2018

This math mural is on a high school wall, somewhere. It works because it has a street art vibe. Not a grade school math book look. That’s cool.

Why not do something like this for your school.

## The Complaint: Everyone Hates Maths Anyway

………………………………………………………………….

## The Cause:

Students absorb maths fear and loathing from peers, siblings, parents and the culture. eg.

From the TwoFatDudes blog.

## The Solution:

Invite interesting guest speakers to talk to students. Other subjects do this. Bring in a cool young ex-student and attitudes can change, fast.

Otherwise show them these videos. The first video especially is AWESOME and totally, totally COOL.

## Cool Guys talk about Math:

Here are their blogs:

## Patrick JMT
