(Pre-Algebra): One experience that I found myself motivated in, was in Pre-Algebra. Pre-Algebra is one of my classes that I understand and do well in. My teacher is very funny so that keeps me very engaged in conversation. Once, when we were learning about geometric equations, my teacher started shouting out the formulas to find the area and perimeter for triangles and squares. After shouting them for a while, he started making the formulas into signals with his hands. He did that a few times and then he made the entire class do it to. As funny as this was, it kept me engaged and now I can remember all of those formulas very quickly because I can just remember that one Pre-Algebra class.
