Do you love chocolates, reward yourself a chocolate if you start to recall the formulae & better if you can use the formula to solve the problems .............. very soon, you will enjoy the subject.

Guess what, I hated math when I was studying as well. Kept wondering why in the world would I need to know cosine, sine, tangent, co-tangent.

My very wise daddy kept telling me, you don't have to like it, you just have to do it. Keep practicing and you will be able remember the formulas. And of all the subjects, math is the one subject that is the easiest to score a distinction.

I did not believe him then and of course math is the last subject that I will touch whenever I prepare for my exams. My dad did something once. He got me a series of assessments and told me to do it. Told me to try it just this once, what have I got to lose? Think I was in Sec 2 then. I thought ok, just try and get him off my case. I went through a couple of assessment books b4 exams and true enough, my grades went up. I applied that theory again for my Os and got distinctions for both A & E math.

So now whenever my daughter complains about having to do any math paper, I tell her the same thing my dad told me.

I still don't like math, no affinity for it. And given the current syllabus that kids are going through, it is even more daunting. But I think what my Dad said still holds true.

Don't have to like it, just do it. It is one subject that you can score.

And you know what, once you start getting better marks, you will find that it's not that unbearable afterall. :wink:
