Mathography
Mrs. Orcutt

Date Assigned: _____________

Date Due: ____________

A mathography is a lot like your life history, except
that it is focused on mathematics in your life.
Write a letter about yourself to your teacher. The
letter will help your teacher get to know you as an
individual. The letter should address these three
general topics: you, you as a student, and you as a
math student. Remember to use complete sentences and
make sure it is neat enough to be read easily. Start
the letter with “Dear…”.    Make  sure  you  sign  your   letter. This should take between fifteen and twenty
minutes to complete. Parts (A), (B) and (c) have
suggestions for each of the three topics.
(A) You: introduce yourself, using the name you
like to be called. Describe your hobbies,
talents, and interests. State your goals or
dreams. What are you proud of? What else would
you like to share?
(B) You as a student: state the importance of
school in your life. Describe yourself as a
student. In what kinds of classroom activities
do you excel? What kinds of activities do you
find frustrating? Explain which subjects are
your favorites. Tell why you like them. How
regularly do you finish in-class assignments?
How faithfully do you do your homework?
(C) You as a math student: describe your most
memorable moment in math and explain why you
remember it. State your favorite math topic.
Name your least favorite. Explain how you feel
about math this year. What grade do you expect
to earn?
