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.
