New Year’s Resolutions…

Happy New Year!

I thought it would be fun to create generic mathematical new year’s resolutions.  I hope you enjoy them:

The undergraduate mathematician’s new year resolutions:

  1. I pledge to never add dominators when adding fractions.
  2. I pledge to attempt the whole math assignment every time.
  3. Oh.. and start the assignment before the night it’s due.
  4. I pledge to spend at least 10 minutes on every problem I don’t understand before asking for help.

The graduate mathematician’s new year resolutions:

  1. I pledge to add content to Wikipedia because I should.
  2. I pledge to not skip my office hours to get coffee.
  3. I pledge to spend at least 1 hour on every problem I don’t understand before asking for help.
  4. I pledge to start studying for my next graduate school hurdle… tomorrow.

The teaching mathematician’s new year resolutions:

  1. I pledge to not get frustrated at the 6th student to ask me the same question.
  2. I pledge to grade homework promptly.
  3. I pledge to do my student’s homework before they do.
  4. I pledge to practice my handwriting on the blackboard.
