Regardless of what class you are in, you will have to write a Mathematical Autobiography for me sometime in the first cycle of school.

**What is a mathematical autobiography?**

A mathematical autobiography is the story of your math history. You will tell me about your journey through “mathdom” from your earliest memories to present.

**What should be included in the mathematical autobiography?**

Your mathematical autobiography should answer the following questions (not necessarily in this order, and you can include more):

- What are your earliest math memories?
- What are some of the math experiences you remember through elementary school and middle school?
- Who was the best math teacher you had, and what made them the best?
- What are three things you like about math? What is something about math that frustrates you?
- How do you use math in your everyday life now?
- How do you think you might use math in your future?
- What is something you think would be interesting to learn about in math this year?
- What do you look forward to in math this year?

**What is required in this assignment?**

Answer the above questions in a minimum of two (2) paragraphs. It might take more. There is no maximum, because I am a storyteller who loves to read your stories. Tell on!

Email your response within the email or as an attachment to smithca@tcis.or.kr.
