MATH: A Burden or FUN

Let's enjoy numbers together. And teach our kids from the beginning the fun hidden in numbers so that later they can enjoy the same.

Math is a phobia in our Indian Society. Especially for females. Its OK to be poor at maths as your mom was also like that so take it easy baby.

This is the approach towards a subject, when we can't do anything without it. Even if you have to become a housewife you have to deal with it on daily basis.Certain qualities that are nurtured by mathematics are power of reasoning, creativity, abstract or spatial thinking, critical thinking, problem-solving ability and even effective communication skills.

"This blog isn’t about making math easy because it is not an easy subject. It’s about making it more sense making because it  really does. This blog is my contribution for shrinkage of gap between theory and practical in mathematics."

Mathematics is the cradle of all creations, without which the world cannot move an inch. Be it a cook or a farmer, a carpenter or a mechanic, a shopkeeper or a doctor, an engineer or a scientist, a musician or a magician, everyone needs mathematics in their day-to-day life. Even insects use mathematics in their everyday life for existence

.Experience says learning mathematics can be made easier and fun loving if our math classes includes mathematical activities and games. Maths puzzles encourage and attract an alert and open-minded attitude among youngsters and help them develop clarity in their thinking. Emphasis should be laid on development of clear concept in mathematics in a child, right from the primary classes. They should enjoy numbers. They should be taught how to see numbers rather than mathematical problems and their solutions.

Till the age of 41 I hated math like any average woman before I could explore my love for this subject when I saw my daughter Kainaa struggling with the same. Now I just love math.  I think the basic reason of students hating maths is a bad teacher. If you have a good teacher who can explain and encourage you, you’ll love it.

Math is a communication rather than dealing with numbers. I will try to prove in my further write ups.

Some people aren't even out of bed before encountering math. Setting an alarm and hitting snooze, they may quickly need to calculate the new time they will arise. Or they might step on a bathroom scale and decide that they’ll skip those extra calories at lunch. People on medication need to understand different dosages, whether in grams or milliliters. Recipes call for ounces and cups and teaspoons --all measurements, all math. 

So I thought of starting this blog. This will be dealing with Elementary Maths only. So if you are a teacher till class 3rd and if you are a parent of young children of the similar age. Thisis for you for EARLY MATHS.

You can post your query here And I will  try my best to resolve the same. Next post will be about number bonds.
