These were the answers to my essay questions:
What is a job that you want to do and how does it use mathematics?
What is the difference between adding and multiplying fractions?
How to you add negative numbers?
2) Negative numbers you add it like this
-12 + -5 = 7
3) The differences are that when you add fractions you do “tops, by tops and bottoms by bottoms.” For multiplying you…
4) The job I’m considering is having a doctorate’s degree. Math is involved by medication, you need formulas for what kinds and how much.
I don’t even know what to think. I’m supposed to have high expectations and a sense of possibility, but is it possible that this girl will ever be a doctor? She is one of my better students, but I just don’t think that I can give her what she needs to take her to medical school. What does everyone else think? At the very least I think the pursuit of being a doctor will get her to college and a good job.
