Math Almost Destroyed Me In School


Okay so when I was younger I wasn’t
really great at math. I was good at other stuff like literature and language arts
and history and all that stuff but I just couldn’t do math as well as I could
do other things. I was home-schooled up until fourth grade when I started
actually going to a public school and the first year I was there I really
really struggled in math class my teacher didn’t help. He would
purposefully call on me even though my hand wasn’t raised for a problem. I don’t
know if other teachers do that but it just didn’t help in my case whatsoever.
And he would call on me and I just, I would never have the correct answer. And I’d always I would turn red and I would get all flustered and I would mutter and
it just made everything so much worse. That didn’t help my self-esteem at all
because the other kids would look at me and be like” oh why doesn’t she know math
oh she’s such an idiot for being a homeschooler
oh.” And I did know math it wasn’t my strong point I mean we all have
weaknesses and stuff stuff like that. Most people watching this are good at
math and I bet some aren’t but that’s okay. Yeah this continued for a while and
I tried to get there but it just wouldn’t stick in my memory as much as
other stuff would. So I passed fourth grade and the same stuff happened in
fifth grade. Like, I wasn’t really getting a hold on anything and it just wasn’t
really my favorite thing to do and I really tried to prioritize it and help
myself. And my parents tried to help and they even made me stay after school so I
could learn more things about it and that didn’t help either. And I had
another math teacher and he wouldn’t help either. He would do the same stuff
the previous teacher would. He would call out my name even though my hand wasn’t
raised and I’d have to sit there like an idiot and just keep quiet. And then all
the kids would laugh me and he’d go on to a different person which i think is a
wrong way to try to teach somebody who’s just calling out on them when they’re
not expecting it. And I’m in eighth grade now and I did pass six and seventh grade.
It is pretty much the same story for all the grades that I struggled in math. And
now I am taking out on at school and I’m home schooled again and I’ve gotten so
much better at math and I can do stuff that I’m confident with and I’m just
grateful that I’m not as bad as I was. And it just takes time and it takes a
certain kind of person as well and you just have to know
what’s right for you. Like you don’t have to be great at a certain subject you can
be perfectly fine in another subject and I’m telling you this story because I
know a lot of kids out there are not as great as other stuff. It could be a sport,
it could be a subject in school, it could be literally anything. But it’s okay
if you don’t get that hold on whatever you’re trying to learn.
It’s just that you don’t have to change, you just might want to improve and it
helped a lot.

  11. Everytime my teacher tells me to go to the front of the class and write the answer,even though she knows i'm terrible but she still tells me to go to the front but whenever i get the answer incorrectly i had to stand up for the rest of the lesson

  12. is really hard to be the one who struggles with math, because basic people and school focuses on that subject, they kinda careless if you are not good at other subjects as long as you are good at math and if you go bad on it everybody gets angry or laugh at you, it really sucks! because math is not something we should aall be good at, I mean amazing for those who do get it quickly and are like genius on it, but at the other side of the corner, when someone is out of school and keeps doing maths and wins tournaments.. people hardly supports them, because they focus more on the singers or famous people, and well it sucks too! Everybody should give a chance to others who are following a dream, sure is amazing to support the singers and youtubers but there are other arts and talents that need support and can help even your country.
