2014 is upon us! Are you one of the 45% of all Americans that make a New Year’s resolution?
Common New Year’s resolutions include losing weight, getting organized, spending less and saving more, staying fit and healthy and quitting smoking. But good habits are hard to start and bad habits are even harder to break. 75% of people will break their resolutions within the first week. 71% of those who made it past the first week will break their resolutions by the end of the 2nd week. 64% of those who keep their resolutions past the second week will break them before the end of January. In fact, only 1.2% of all Americans that make a New Year’s resolution will have kept their resolve by the end of June.
However, we need to put in the effort to reap the rewards! Here are some great resolutions to create good math habits in students:
All of these are easy ways to get students to think positively about and succeed at math.
