Choose the side of the topic you are "for" rather than "against," and your essay will be stronger.
Instead, it is a statement of an obvious and mundane fact. A more effective attention grabber may point out a specific, and perhaps surprising, instance when adults use math in their daily lives, in order to show the reader why this is such as important topic to consider.
Next the writer “announces” her topic by stating, “The topic I have chosen to write about…” Although it is necessary to introduce your specific topic, you want to avoid making generic announcements that reference your assignment.
However, it is not yet working as a thesis statement because it fails to make an argument or claim about those topics.
A thesis statement for this essay would clearly tell the reader what “things” you will be discussing and what point you will make about them.
Write a paragraph about each of these key points, using the information you've pulled from your notes.
Every essay or assignment you write must begin with an introduction.
Below is a sample of an introduction that is less effective because it doesn’t apply the principles discussed above. Some people use math on the job as adults, and others used math when they were kids.
The topic I have chosen to write about for this paper is how I use math in my life both as a child and as an adult.
I use math to balance my checkbook and to budget my monthly expenses as an adult.
When I was a child, I used math to run a lemonade stand.
