Abstract

Understanding math can be a challenge for some and a thrill to others. Math is a subject were the answers are always the same no matter where you are in the world. But what is different is how math is taught and embraced in various regions of the world. To understand how this impacts one’s relationship with math will be the focus of this research. Our primary comparisons will be between the United States and South East Asian countries. We will also discuss some best practices used by both countries and how they can possibly be incorporated into our classrooms.
