## Professor Pete's Credo

If you agree with the following credo, we want to get to know you better.

We believe:

- Every child can succeed at learning math
- I have not mastered the teaching of math; I can always improve
- The results my students achieve in math are a direct reflection of how well I have taught them
- Remembering how to correctly follow math procedures does not mean a person is “good at math”
- Math should be the most important lesson of the day
- Students who do not understand the math they have been exposed to did not learn it
- Every child should memorise the multiplication facts for instant recall from age 9 years
- Learning math is about rigour and hard work, which should lead to better understanding and better results, rather than having fun
- The activity of learning math has transformative power to change a life and a person’s future forever
