A Hybrid Essay – Reflective Essay
Hey guys! I wrote this a long time ago and It’s not a very good essay and I was juts wondering if someone around the World wide web can proofread this essay for me. I’m not actually looking for marks ’cause it’s too late but, I need right now is feedback on how well am I doing in learning the English Language Arts.
As a Math Student in the Philippines, I have learned to appreciate the simple, yet
intoxicating moment when my mind engages mathematical problems. As John Louis
Von Neumann says: “If people do not realize that mathematics is simple, it is only
because they do not realize how complicated life is.” In my late years a high school
student in the Philippines, I wanted to know the “true” purpose of Mathematical
problems, however, I have now realized that this would void the whole mystery of
I have always been a thinker, but throughout the course of the year, I have greatly
sharpened my skills in analyzing critically, Instead of focusing on the length and
difficulty of the math problems. I have learned to continuously ask “why” on many levels.
I challenge myself to dig deeply when studying for a math test as deeply as possible to
decipher the meanings of the problems. Also, by reading my multiple math books by the
same author, I have learned to indentify the different mathematical standards and make
connections and combine the elements together. When I look at one of my freshman
level test papers in math and see those low scores, I have realized that I did not actively
studied the book. I guess you could say that I have learned to study thoroughly, which
drastically taken my math skills to a new level because I am able to connect to my math
basics and manipulate them as if they were an extension of my hands.
Mathematics had always been one of my strengths, but it was challenging to take
that initial step past my freshman high school years. Solving and calculating for answers
that constricted my ideas for so long. Moving part these procedures, however, has
greatly opened my mind. My thoughts are now able to process more complex
mathematical problems because I have learned to sustain my mathematical basics and
apply them to the problems in an organized manner. My mathematical skills has
become more concise and I no longer need to spend too much on problems.
Another improvement is my ability to identify the formulas in word problems in short
periods of time, instead of reading the whole problem ten times to decipher the
formulas. Furthermore, leaving how to solve basic math in short periods of time has
significantly widened my time frame of studying, which gave me more time to through
each problem again to correct minor mistakes. My mathematical ability is so much more
satisfying as it used to be.
It is difficult to point out gaps in my knowledge as math student, only because I feel
like Learned so much. I feel that I have largely broadened my mathematical abilities, but
I need to be prepared to learn math on a Canadian high school which requires more
mathematical skills. I think it would be useful to go back to my basics and study the new
topics thoroughly by going back to my basics and reassessing my math skills. I will have
sturdy foundation in studying and learning math on Canadian Standards.
