Math is an important part of a student’s life, anyone can learn the basics, but beyond that, it gets REAL complicated. 80 percent of high school students are unable to pass Mathematics. IT is the primary reason for leaving school.
Math is not a bad subject. Math is crucial. But we’re doing it wrong. We’re spending the first two decades of human development training kids with questions like: “If Mohan has 7 books and Billy has 9, how many books can they fit in a bag?” School students are incapable to understand the basic fundamental of mathematics. We are never systematically taught how to respond to trouble without irritation. We were a genetic culture we had sent our children in school with a pencil and tell them not to come back until they can divide integers.
We have valuable time to build young minds and we’re blowing it
If you think our world would be better served if we spent more time learning practical skills which are helpful to solve our real-life problems — such as finance, budgeting so on.
Make maths optional subject rather than mandatory.
Time to find out where the problems are and work on them.
Teachers can use class time to teach practical math and teacher do not compel and punish students to do good in maths.
