10. They’re Always Giving Us New Stuff: BUSTED

August 8, 2017

The Complaint:

10. They’re always giving us new stuff.

The Cause:

Maths does have new topics, but not that often. Maths tends to go over and over old topics before adding new material. Students can feel overwhelmed simply because they are not paying attention. They are talking, texting, complaining, graffiting …etc. (See below)

Every day is like the reverse of Groundhog Day. Everything looks new again … new again … new again because they didn’t learn anything yesterday.

Here is the challenge for students: I Dare You To Watch This Entire Video

Really. Can students make it through this video without talking, texting, annoying someone ….? The video is funny and too true.

Video Link here

The Solution:

Start paying attention. Maths will make more sense.
