I always felt that Math was boring, until I came to Math Shack. At school, math class felt long and tedious and there was minimal teacher interaction and discussion. Math Shack is the complete opposite! I love my teacher because she helps me understand math, problem solve at the whiteboard table, and move around and play math games to help me learn. I really like how the Math Shack teacher explains math to me by using real life situations that make learning math relevant. I understand why Math is so important thanks to Ms. Lacy.
