A Mathography is a lot like your life history except that it is focussed on mathematics in your life.

You will write three paragraphs about yourself. This will help your teacher and others to get to know you as an individual. It 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 your work is legible. The final draft should be typed. Read below to guide your writing.


Paragraph 1: YOU

Introduce yourself, using the name you like to be called. What languages do you speak? Describe your hobbies, talents, and interests. State your goals or dreams. What are you proud of? What else would you like to share?

Paragraph 2: YOU AS A STUDENT
