Math competition

I invited a couple of my calculus students from first hour to join Mu Alpha Theta in a math competition at a local university next month. Both their eyes lit up and they high-fived each other  as they gave me a verbal commitment to participate. 

After I told fifth hour about it, I personally invited a couple boys that I thought would really enjoy it. One of them gave me a thumbs up and nodded his head, as if to say, “Obviously I’m going.” 

I love that I get to teach kids who love math. And also kids who have lost their love of it. But today it made me a very happy momma to see kids who get excited about a math competition on a Saturday afternoon. 

They’re just the sweetest.
