Our Class is something different because we approach math differently rather than the traditional way I have always had. This way is much better because we understand a lot better. This type of class environment is most effective because we are free to express our own individual opinion on the subject rather than just telling the teacher what she wants to hear. We do not just memorize our answers and then put it down on a test. Our curriculum is different because we take our time and work at our own pace and we are free to tell the teacher that we need more help on something or if we can show that we know it, we can move on and not have to spend time with all the boring stuff. Sometimes it is very chaotic in class, but that is because we are all given individual assignments based on what we need and what we are interested in. One thing that I have learned in this class is that math is more than just memorizing facts, but it is how numbers relate to each other. If I understand that relationship, then I don't need to remember the formulas because that formula is just a representation for the relationship. If I know the relationship, then I can figure out the answers and this will help me in my other classes and when I graduate.
