Math Musings

How I Made 21 Math Musings Videos in 21 Days

by | May 17, 2020 | Articles

The videos were taken candidly at home, with the help of my son who was 8 years old at that time. We are neither digital professionals nor professional speakers. 

These are just musings from my experience as a mum to my children and a teacher to my students.

Most of the videos were taken late after my night classes with no touch-ups (hence my droopy eyelids in some of the videos) and over a period of 3 weeks. They were all far from perfect, but it gave me a great sense of achievement of doing something far from what I had imagined I could do.

But that’s what I learned as well… that being imperfect is OK as long as we take the first step towards wanting to do better and at the same time enjoy learning from the experience. From there, we continue to learn and improve until we become good at it one day. 

As you can see, the first few videos were not well done; I spoke cautiously and consciously, but as I kept making more videos, I started to gain more confidence in speaking. 

Students and Parents, the same applies to Math.  The first step is always the hardest. But you should not give up there. Continue practicing, even if you make mistakes, don’t give up.

With perseverance, hard work and my guidance, Students, you will get there one day..even if you are not there now.
