Me & Math: Reflecting On My Critical Thinking & Learning

The Intellectual Virtue I Chose:
I chose Intellectual perseverance
How I have worked to develop my critical thinking through this virtue: I bought some of the mix quizzes were hard for some problems so I worked and worked on the problems and now I can do them without thinking about them. Another thing was the Mid-year test. The first time I took it I rushed through it because we only had 45 minutes to finish it. Now when I retake it I will take my time.

Here is a picture of one of the problems that I need to work on and I corrected them.
