Why Mathematics is hard and how to solve it?
Mathematics is the study of numbers, and counting, and measuring, but that is only the beginning. Mathematics involves the study of number patterns and relationships, too. It is also a way to communicate ideas, and perhaps more than anything, it is a way of reasoning that is unique to human beings. Mathematics is divided into pure or theoretical mathematics, and applied mathematics. Applied mathematicians focus on how to apply mathematical principles to questions people have about the world around them and other practical problems. Not everyone is able to understand math easily. Students are rushed to understand math, and I don't think the brain learns math the same way that English or history is learned. Building Math skills is similar to building or sculpting the body when exercising. A person has to have a good foundation in the building process, or the process is just a matter of going through the motions. Another part of the problem is something that those who understand math easily don't understand. Some of us rebel against what we are told is "this way" or "that way" and it takes us a while, in our own time, to be satisfied that we aren't simply being programmed to do what the rest all do. I had to recognize this "rebellion" pattern in my own thinking. Other people don't think it's fair to say mathematics is a difficult subject to learn. As with anything you want to learn or do in life, if you enjoy it you'll have a much easier time. More complex mathematics is all about problem solving which is a fantastic skill to develop. To some people who enjoy Mathematics, it is a very interested and inspiring topic. Sometimes you might get stuck, like me, but once you knew the way to solve it, it instantly becomes a magical, and you will be like “Wow, didn't know I can do that with mathematics!” Mathematics is everywhere if you look deep enough?

See that building across the road? Well that...
