“It is clear that the chief end of mathematical study must be to make the students think.” – John Wesley Young
Mathematics is not the study of numbers but rather the understanding behind the numbers. Math is all around us and used in everything we do. It is the building block for almost everything in our daily lives—from money, architecture, and computers to art and sports. Mathematics is not about answers it is about processes. The goal of mathematics is to get one to think, perceive, and analyze mathematically.
Sue teaches everything from sixth grade math to Financial Algebra. She focuses on helping students to understand and to think mathematically. From learning how to understand and navigate with fractions to understanding the true cost of using credit cards and student loans. Sue believes that mathematics is just one small “window” into understanding more of God’s marvelous creation. It is her desire that students will not only be able to think logically but they will also come to enjoy math and understand how math can reveal more about God and His creation.
