Matt Waite: How I faced my fears and learned to be good at math
by Matt Waite

Matt WaiteSomewhere in middle school, I had convinced myself that I was bad at math. It was okay: My mom was bad at math too. So were lots of people I looked up to. "Bad at math" was a thing — probably even genetic — and it was okay.

I so thoroughly convinced myself that I was bad at math that I very nearly didn't graduate from high school. It took tutors and hours a week to squeak through an advanced algebra class my friends had all breezed through on their way to much harder classes.

But it was okay. I was bad at math. They weren't. Simple as that.

And it was all a lie.

The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to provide lifelong community access to a dynamic curriculum that emphasizes mathematical concepts, communication and applications through a commitment to sound pedagogy. In a mathematically dependent society the department will strive to anticipate and meet the evolving needs of our students, our faculty, our college, and our community.
