    I agree with all of Lizzie’s comments here. Mine are:

    Good @ math:

    – Often have support at home

    – Good at seeing/recognizing patterns

    – Learned early math easily

    – Believe they “can”

    – Connect with the learning/can apply it to real life.

    Poor @ math:

    – Often don’t have support at home, or have chaotic home-life

    – struggle to see patterns

    – struggled with early math, maybe due to no connection to it.

    – believe they “can’t”

    – often struggle in many subjects at school

    In common:

    – age alike peers

    – capable humans

    – can choose to practice or participate

    – use math in real life, whether they recognize it or not.

    – have me willing to help if they reach out at all.

    – are valuable, interesting, and not perfect.
