Contrary to popular belief, students actually like math a lot more than they let on
Sep 24, 2019
Ask any teacher and they've likely heard more than their fair share of students say they hate math or that it's too hard and they will never use it. However, as kids return to school, they might be looking forward to math class more than they let on, according to a new study commissioned by Texas Instruments and conducted by Research Now Group, Inc., a global leader in digital research. The survey polled approximately 1,000 students across the U.S., between the ages of 13 – 18, to gauge their moods about math and understand what motivates them as they head back to class.
"There is a misconception in this country that kids hate math," said Peter Balyta, former math teacher turned president of TI Education Technology. "Our findings suggest middle and high school students naturally like math, so it's up to us as parents and educators to help kids fuel that passion to develop a deeper understanding of – and hopefully – a lifelong love and appreciation for math."
