Reflection: It's As Basic As That - Section 4: Closing

I have found that comparing practicing school work to sports is a concept easily identified with.  We know as adults, and as educators, that like sports, there are some students that more readily grasp mathematics than others.  However, that "gap" can be closed with practice and perseverance.  We should celebrate this hard work and prize practice…always keeping it positive.
