In the course I am taking online, **How to Learn Mathematics**, one of the assignments is to create a poster that highlights the importance of mistake making during the process of learning mathematics. What I believe is that mathematics is both in the external world (and hence discovered) and also a construct of our minds (and hence created). When students learn mathematics, they explore the world external to themselves to develop an internal model of mathematics.

An aside: Can you help me figure out how to make my poster look better? I’d like to add some colour or something, but I’m not sure exactly where…

Pick one path and make that one path a different color?

Math has always been a tough subject for me. But I know it is the root of science. I got some inspiring tone here on this page. thanks
