In the beginning I was very nervous that I would never understand the way elementary math is now taught, but after weeks of learning more about it I feel much better. I would like to voice my opinion to the president of William Penn because I believe that this class needs to be two semesters long instead of one. I am not saying that I am the smartest person, but I am an “A” student and this class has been by far the hardest I have had to take out of five college semesters. Since the common core continues to change, it important as future teachers that we know everything there is to know about the curriculum because if we cannot teach it, what good are we as teachers.
For example, I spent two weeks teaching myself the computing program—Mathematica, because I was curious to see the accurate phase portraits after I learned the techniques that enabled me to sketch phase portraits in my Ordinary Differential Equation class. Nevertheless, sometimes I could not find any solution even though I had worked on it for a long time. I struggled to prove Wright’s Theory, which is widely applied in Graph Theory, but I still could not figure it out without the help of my professor. However, Mathematics is also pleasant and exhilarating. Nothing offers me more joy than solving a difficult mathematical problem.
Through dedication to my studies, I completed some a month earlier than my peers. I realized I had the work ethic to enroll in honors and advanced placement classes in high school. Throughout my years in high school I have had some ups and downs, but never have I let that hinder my academic excellence. I have taken advance placement English and Latin, and honor math courses all of which have showed me that I can succeed at any level. My first two years of high school I had enrolled in computer science courses, which I thought was going to be a typing class.
I was nervous that I would be taking two more college level math courses, but it was the best option for me. Last semester I took MTH 102 and ended with an A. I was proud of myself, because I have struggled with math on and off throughout
This extra support made it much easier for me to grasp the math concepts I was missing in class. They gave me one on one support and I can now see why they pushed me so hard. Math is very important, and a life long skill that is beneficial for everyone in most jobs. My understanding of math is much stronger than it has ever been. While I am a life long learner, I know there is still plenty more for me to learn.
This interest in mathematics and sciences always made my engineering education a fascinatingly passionable target. To define my destiny I took my first footing by choosing mathematics, physics and chemistry as my core subjects in 12th standard. At this stage my concentration coupled with hard work propelled me to score 91.6% in the 12th Standard. By good worth of my performance at Engineering Entrance Examinations, I gained admission into Electronics and Communication Engineering at Ramachandra College of Engineering, affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU). My passion for novelty grew deeper when I took Electronics and Communications Engineering in my under graduation which holds the subjects like Electronic Devices & Circuits, Probability theory and Stochastic processes, Signals & Systems, Electronic Circuit Analysis, Pulse & Digital Circuits, Switching theory & Logic design, EM waves a... ... middle of paper ... ...ssors, this is the main reason behind seeking admission in your esteemed institution.
Upon joining the regular class, I was getting A’s and felt under challenged which confused me even more. I spent the next two years of middle school in the regular math courses, fighting my advising officer to try to get back in Honors because I knew I could do it. High school I was more determined to prove myself. I started freshman year in the honors cou... ... middle of paper ... ... real world today. Not to mention, it’s essential for students to be able to discuss, redefine, and critique theirs and others understanding of mathematics and ideas.
It only took me one class to decide that that is what I want to do for the rest of my life. In high school, I was also a part of the Computer Science UIL team. This meant we would travel to different schools and compete in coding contests. These contests were cool because I could see and talk to people who thought and communicated just like I did. We all loved math, science, and of course coding.

Moreover a university with such confluence of people from every culture, nationality, religion and ideology, will definitely aid in the overall development of my personality while at the same time, highly competitive and intellectually stimulating atmosphere at this University will bring out the best in me. I am fully aware that this university expects very high standards of commitment and perseverance from its students. I also agree that journey ahead will be arduous and demanding at times but I am sure that with my strong technical background, adaptability and high motivation I will see me through this challenge. Hence I request to consider me for being the part of this gratifying and enriching experience of learning with possible financial aid.
my privacy.). So, for me it was not surprising that I spent an hour to make a list of games to play in the class, and find the best location in the classroom “GREG 133” to be covered well from the professor and his TA. However, the surprising part was I didn’t play any games (to be completely honest, no that much), or doing anything else on the class time but paying attention, and in this essay I want to explain how this happened. The way of presenting in this course was very first impression I had. For a computer science student who always look around for new technologies in (not just) education, a presentation with a simple word document or PDF file with a huge amount of texts is way too old-fashioned, and unsurprisingly additional reason to get bored in a class.
