Math is not a favorite subject for many students. They feel like they simply are not a "math person" or students struggle with the critical thinking and complexity of math content. Traditional math instruction typically centers on rote memorization, daily homework, seemingly no second chances on assessments and class time structures that limits teachers in providing in-class practice after homework review and new content instruction. No wonder students feel like math sucks.
