Developing interest towards maths depends on your industry in the initial stages and later
on your intelligence. It is one of the few subjects, wherein you can score hundred percent
marks to enhance your overall percentage.
Many students fear maths. But it’s an easy and interesting subject, once you understand
the basics. Be thorough in them. Without comprehensive knowledge about fundamental
formulas, techniques, multiplication tables, laws, and theorems you cannot expect to be
good at maths.
Unlike other subjects, each lesson in maths is built on the previous ones. Falling a day
behind puts you in a confused position. Never hesitate to ask questions. A little-uncleared
doubt now leads to a huge roadblock in future.
There are two steps in mastering maths. It is by Practice (taking interest in solving
various types of problems) and Application (solving a particular problem in different
ways). Understand the problem first. Devise a plan. Apply your skills and techniques.
While working on the equation, draw the nearest and correct route to the answer. If you
fail to reach the target, use other variables. This applies to management accounts,
statistics, costing… and life also.
“If some people believe that mathematics is tough, it is only because they do not realize
how complicated life is,” said Ramanujam, the maths pundit. ‘Reasoning’ is the backbone
for maths. Failure in ‘not getting the correct solution’ teaches you how to look back to
locate your mistake, amend your equations and arrive at a correct solution. This applies to
real life also.
Convert your life problem into simple mathematics. Draw a formula. Locate the nucleus of
the crisis. Once you are clear about the cause of your problem, automatically you would
know the method of approach to sorting it out.
