Many people don’t love mathematics, some as a whole and some partially. Math has been presented as a hard subject that to excel one needs to struggle. Fear has been placed in junior students because of how some topics have been expressed as hard by the senior students. Some people don’t love math because the teachers who teach that subject have been presented as harsh and strict to their students. Due to the many misconceptions that have been presented to people solutions have to be made so that students can see math as an awesome subject that they can enjoy and apply in their daily living. To make math a beautiful subject, the following things should be applied.
Students are easily motivated when they attend an interesting lesson. Feeling part of a lesson and enjoying it births the spirit of math in students. Confidence in the students to participate in class by answering questions can come because of this. Due to the openness developed in the students, they answer the questions freely not afraid of making mistakes and this helps the teacher to know areas a student is strong in and areas that they need help in. Questions will be freely asked in the class because the teacher has created a free environment to relate with the student, this enables the teacher to know the topics that need to be repeated. Such an environment will help improve the student’s performance hence improving the class means.
Learning to enjoy mathematics as a subject is something that can be built in a person from a young age through the introduction of math programs for kids. Many have expressed their opinions about math that are only misconceptions hence they have put a risk out there of kids growing with hatred in their hearts for the subject which should be dealt with at a young age through the programs. These math programs should be interactive where the kids can even play games that bring out a math concept. This will stick with them because it is something, they participated in. Also, the kids should learn to answer questions with boldness so that they cannot live doubting their answers. In future academic stages, they will have the confidence to ask and respond to questions because they build confidence at an early stage.
The math lessons should introduce the practical part of the subject. The application of what is being taught in the math lessons is not clear to most of the students. Clearly outlining the application areas of the subject attaches a reason as to why the students should take the subject seriously.
