THE FEAR OF MATHEMATICS
Mathematics is often called the "queen of the sciences. It is a crucially important tool in the study of other scientific disciplines, in addition to being a science in its own right. Its value to scientific accomplishment is as innumerable as it is invaluable. Regarded as the nucleus of the science world itself, most celebrated scientific achievements could hardly have had a jumpstart without the guiding precepts of the basic modules of arithmetic. Most careers in Universities and colleges of education in the country increasingly require mathematics as a prerequisite. Mathematics is being used in the study of problems in an increasing number of areas like biotechnology, data communications, environmental toxicology, medical imaging, transportation scheduling, and financial risk management. The phobia for the disciple in high school has been recurring through time. It has endured an unhealthy acuity mainly in the mind of the lower level academic. Most students do not know how much the use of mathematics affects them, both now and in the future. Irrespective of gender, the scare of poor performance plagues parents as their wards grapple this non-avoidable subject. Most times the child that starts abhor mathematics would find no point of attraction with the class or the teacher. The result? Truancy sets in. This psyche can be corrected.

This piece focuses on factors that contribute to uneasy anxiety and abysmal performance in mathematics and by extension general academic performance. Starting from the home distractions, I would rather disasters, like TV, computers and leisure games, rob kids of the time to revise or conclude assignments from school. Left uncontrolled, kids spend endless hours glued to screens with keyboards, joystick and game pads in their hands in place of pens. Also, increased work-hours and choked weekend schedules have left parents all-in, with little quality time to their wards. Monitoring of their academics...

...History of mathematics
A proof from Euclid's Elements, widely considered the most influential textbook of all time.[1]
The area of study known as the history of mathematics is primarily an investigation into the origin of discoveries in mathematics and, to a lesser extent, an investigation into the mathematical methods and notation of the past.
Before the modern age and the worldwide spread of knowledge, written examples of new mathematical...

...Dictation by Fear
As the Twin Towers fell to the ground, mass chaos spread throughout the United States. Among many other overwhelming feelings, many Americans were left in question and accusations. The motives of the terrorists were unknown and many Americans’ fear overtook a sense of logic. With fear fueling the minds of many Americans, many began to take illogical and unjustified actions. A stereotype developed amongst the Muslim society, which...

...that the paper itself could be a solution to the problem mentioned. Moreover, it makes the thesis more realistic.
To sum up everything that was tackled, I could say that the thesis served to have an important purpose in the current state of Mathematics Education in the Philippines. It is very informative and feasible. Since it is a small study because it only involved 6 average students, we could propose more studies rooting from this which would have a bigger scope such as...

...Fear
As the instructor put me in that choke hold on my second to last day of swim instruction I knew I broke the one rule I tried so hard not to. “Get the hell out of my pool” he yelled. I dangled there in the middle of the pool wondering how this man could hold me in a chokehold while keeping both of us afloat. “You weak bitch, get the fuck out of my pool”. As those words echoed through the empty olympic sized pool room I was let go, left to reach the side of the deep...

...HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS
The history of mathematics is nearly as old as humanity itself. Since antiquity, mathematics has been fundamental to advances in science, engineering, and philosophy. It has evolved from simple counting, measurement and calculation, and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects, through the application of abstraction, imagination and logic, to the broad, complex and often abstract discipline we know...
