Learning Mathematics – Important or not ?



“Maths is the worst thing ever invented by man. What were they thinking? Language is too easy, so let’s make up some creepy symbols and manipulate them to haunt every generation of kids.”

On January 21, 2014, on the Facebook fan page of the renowned author, Chetan Bhagat, the above statement (from 3 Mistakes Of My Life) was published posted on a Facebook status. This gave rise to a numerous positive and negative comments from people throughout the globe. A few people appreciated the statement, whereas a few completely disagreed with the statement.

Few people, in fact expressed contentment stating even Chetan Bhagat actually thinks of those lines as they think! Whereas a few more people stated that “mathematics occupies an important place in various branches of studies” and the statement was not agreed upon.

Among the numerous comments that followed the statement a comment indicated that “maths is a language of scholars”, whereas there was another comment, which stated that Maths annoys that person a lot. There was one  more comment, which stated that “maths is like sweet and a few like it and a few people do not. This clearly tells as to how people are biased about this subject.

Even though the opinions vary among people, I feel Mathematics is an important branch of study and have put across my personal views herein.

Well! Maths is often considered a tough subject of study. Too many calculations, formulas, method of working out and such other things are really not a child’s play. The previous night of the Maths examination is truly a nightmare for many. But, what about life without mathematics? Learning only languages may help you to interact with people.

Even in various subjects of study like geography, physics or chemistry, various numerical calculations will be included and hence, mathematics can never be ignored. Apart from the usual arithmetic study, students will also be subject to study of algebra and geometry, with which mathematics is made interesting. Considering all these aspects, maths can certainly be considered ‘magic’. However, by following the below mentioned tips, maths can be learnt effectively.

  • Practice maths daily – It is better to make it a habit. Students are required to dedicate at least two to three hours on a daily basis for this purpose. Practice only makes better at maths.
  • Group studies can prove to be effective. - Compete with friends so as to decide who can solve quickly and effectively.
  • Memorize the formulae – The formulae should be memorized well. It is ideal to make a chart of it and hang it against a wall, so that they can have a glance at it every day.
  • Consider it equal to any other subject – When the students think this way, it will not generate any kind of stress. However, it is suggested to give a little more importance.
  • Be confident – Solving the math problems confidently is extremely essential. Try to find new methods of solving a particular problem. Understand the concept well, so that it facilitates easy calculation.

If these things are followed, maths will never be a difficult subject of study.  Children can easily excel in it and score well!

The author Chetan Bhagat’s statement, does not actually fit in the current competitive world. May be he feels that for a writer it is not that essential as most of the time and efforts are revolved around thinking on creative lines and putting across good language. However, considering the needs of the current world, knowing at least the basic concepts of mathematics is essential.
