What Math Students Really Do

I’m really excited to share this video from Upworthy. For anyone who is wondering what studying math is really like, this video provides a great answer. It turns out studying math is not that different from studying anything else: math can be difficult to understand and takes plenty of time and practice to be become comfortable with. But just like any other skill, math skills can be mastered with practice, perseverance, and a willingness to seek out help. So don’t let math–or any other academic subject–intimidate you. Watch the video now and get inspired!

About eemilne

My name is Erin Milne, and I am a mathematics student and teacher. I earned my master's in math from the University of Vermont, and I received my undergraduate education from Lyndon State College. My goal for this blog is to make mathematics interesting, useful, and non-frightening, as well as to inspire other low-income and first-generation students to continue their education. I hope this blog will be helpful, inspiring, and thought-provoking for high school and college students facing the same challenges that I have faced.
