Enjoyed this class very much and I've gotten to find a stronger interest in Math.
I enjoyed this course and learned a lot about mathematics and how to teach it to children.
Great, learned plenty and with out being too stressed out!
Sandy is an awesome teacher. He made learning really FUN! I enjoyed each of his classes.
This was an overall great course and helped me get a better grasp on basic math.
It was a great course. I enjoyed the challenging math problems.

I enjoyed the math readings as well as both of the problems. They were challenging and fun.
effective preparation for teaching Mathematics to students. I enjoy learning to "see" in other ways.
Very fun and exciting. I enjoyed this class very much and changed my perspective on math.
I really enjoyed this course and am thankful to have such a great teacher like Sandy, who makes every class fun!
that we got to learn about different cultures that are here in Hawaii which is great. We were able to understand those students from their point of view.
I thought this class was really great. Sandy made this class fun through many math ways and yet it broaden my mind to how I could put math into the classroom in a fun and not just a desk learning way. He also taught me so many ways to do math problems that I never saw possible. I am glad for him and this class!
great! ;)
This was a good course. After my experience with Math 111 and 112 I was nervous about this course but I like how he challenges us to think about the question rather than give us the answers. I also liked that he introduced culture in many of his lessons.
this class was very beneficial in that I learned how mathematics is seen from an elementary point of view and how I can utilized activities and lessons I've learned in my future classroom.
It was a good course and I learned a lot of cool things about mathematics.
It was fun and interactive. It made me think in different ways.

it was an eye opening class. I see math in a differnt light. I learned that there are many ways to teach math methods to children and that is math is fun!
I enjoyed this class and learned math in a new and fun way! I now see mathematics in a different way!
I learned a lot of things I can able to the classroom :)
I really liked the course,especially how everything is in relation to students and what their needs will be when we are teachers and how to work with diverse learner a.
This course was very fun. I liked learning about the different math tricks. I liked getting into groups and reading an article and presenting it to the class. I like learning from my classmates as well as the teacher.
I really like Sandy. Awesome teacher :)
I had lots of fun with all the hard and interesting problems he gave to us. They made our minds go crazy but we all are competitive and it makes us try that much harder :)
19. Other comments:
Looking for to another course with Mr. Dawson.

Thank you for a great semester! I look forward to the next class with you!
Love this class. Wish I went into secondary mathematics but love elementary students...
