A 4th Grade student in PS 277 is one of 72 national finalists in “What Math Means to Me Art Contest” by McGraw-Hill. It is a where there were over 2100 entries to the My Math Cover contest. Students were asked to create original works of art that tell the story of “what math means to them”. They will be rewarded with that piece of art proudly displayed on the cover of the new My Math Student materials – both in print and online.
I was asked to draw a picture about what math means to me. Math means many different things to me. I see math in different ways. I see math in shapes and colors. I don’t see math like other people because of my dyslexia. Sometimes I see numbers backwards. Sometimes I jumble the place value. It helps me when I think of the number in colors. The colors help me concentrate. When I drew my picture I wanted to show how I see numbers in colorful ways.
