The BSME program has provided me with new problem solving skills and introduced me to a new style of teaching math. In the program I took a practicum course where I went to Hungarian schools and observed teachers teach math (translated in English by my professor) using the Hungarian approach of teaching. I also took a Gamification course which explored different ways to make math more engaging for students using games and manipulatives. The last BSME course I took was a Geometry Problem Solving course where I saw geometry again for the first time since 9th grade. This course was very beneficial for teaching geometry and providing students with problems that tailor to the discovery learning method of teaching. Although I only took three BSME course, there are a few others also offered.

During my time in Budapest, I have made many genuine friends with people I would otherwise have never met. Being from a small town, this is experience has broadened my understanding of the world and strengthened my sense of responsibility as a young adult.

Overall, there is so much more I could say about this study experience for future math educators, but I think you should go experience it for yourselves.
