“Once I get into algebra, my parents will have to help me with my homework.” “I don’t need to know a lot of math.”
“Math is so boring.”
“I’m just not good with numbers. If I need to know that stuff, I ask my boyfriend.”
Does any of the above sound familiar? Or do you also feel what others feel about their Mathematics subject? Don’t be dismayed, you’re not alone. There are many.
While the geeks and nerds are enjoying problem solving, others surely hate the ancient Greeks for inventing Mathematics. Others have hatred or lack of enthusiasm with this subject. One that aggravates their frustration is the experience of spending hours solving complex math problems only to end up getting zero as the value of x or y. Others often ask, “Why do we need to study Math? Is it necessary in our everyday lives?” Unfortunately for others, yes it is. Actually if you just look and observe your classroom, it has been confined to the four corners. It comes to think that it was seldom taught as something practical that can be used in daily life. Every time we count the things we want to buy, the money in our wallets, the number of One Direction and KPop groups’ collections we have, checking the time, figuring out how long a trip will take by using a car or a plane and etc. we use math. Basic math that is, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

But when talk of the values of x and y, the median of this, the value of pi raised to the second power, everything else seems to go south and these concepts seem so alien, far away and abstract. Let us just countered by giving examples like, say you have whole pizza and there are five of you. Naturally, it would be divided into five slices so that each would have an equal share. However, one becomes greedy, says you, and wants to have more than one slice of the pizza. So instead of dividing it into five, you cut it up into six. And since you’re the one who did the cutting, you get the sixth slice in addition to your first...

ANALYSIS
Physics has a lot of topics to cover. In the previous experiments, we discussed Forces, Kinematics, and Motions. In this experiment, the focus is all about Friction. Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other. There are several types of friction like fluid friction which describes the friction between layers of a viscous fluid that are moving relative to each other; dry friction which...

The case between Beauty and Stylish involves concept of a valid contract, pre-contractual statements, express term and misrepresentation.
A valid contract is established between Beauty and Stylish when an offer is accepted and there is intention for both parties to create legal relations. An offer refers to the expression of willingness of the offerer to be contractually bound by an agreement if his or her offer is properly accepted. It has to be clear and certain in terms. It must also...

My Math Experience
When I was younger math was my favorite subject, it was something that I felt very confident
with. Unlike english, history, and literature, where I had to exert extra effort, math was the only
subject that really came naturally to me. I remember when I was a kid my dad would test me on ...

...what is 1+1 and your answer, or course, is going to be 2. But what if God responded to that elementary question with the answer of 3? Would you question it? Or would you take His answer as-is because He is all knowing? I am going to explore through math whether or not we, as Christians, it is wrong to question God.
