PART 1. Pop-culture and media in Mathematics.**Students’ perception of mathematicians or math people.****Complicated, anti-social, unattractive, clever, hairy, male with glasses…etc**

“Being a classic math teacher. ” by Kunchock and Cassius

“When you study math…” by Tabina, Kayla, Stephanie, Genesis, Tabina

“TRCS Mathematicians” By Gabriel N, Angelo, Andrew and Luc

**2. How does negative stereotype of mathematicians influence our learning?****-Lower participation****-Lower self-esteems**

**3. Why do we need people who must study in math? Think about the bigger picture.**

#### As MPE2013 suggests, we are at a time when mathematics is going to save the world from chaos.

#### We need mathematicians to be pushing at the edge of research to solve some of the problems that the human race is facing.

We need people who must study mathematics to solve problems such as extreme weather, natural disasters, the population, monitoring pollution, climate change…etc

4. Campaign for TRCS Students to love mathematics.

# “Math can determine our future.” by Destiny (9th grade)
