Hey guys!!! We all have studied Maths and most of us hate it. I am also one of those who hate it. Even though I hate it, for some reasons I had to study it. A few days back while solving some math problems, I found something about maths that we don’t notice. Something that defines the real meaning of maths. So today, let’s learn what is maths and what does it teach in our favorite, Expeknow style.

Maths for me is just the game of understanding concepts, remembering their usage, and learning to use them in different scenarios.

This view may not be perfect but it provides an overview of what maths is.

Now, a few days back I was solving an equation. Although I studied the concepts and learned to use them almost always, I was still not being able to solve that equation. I wondered what the answer could be when I just turned a page and found a similar example but on a small scale that I didn’t notice.

Like, if my equation is: 3628.8+7930
Then the example was: 21+38=59

I know it’s not an equation but it’s great for understanding my scene. So, I observed the ultimate thing that was being done in that example of my book. I got the idea. Then I checked the answer to the equation I was solving and I observed that this was the same thing done on a large scale.

Now, if you didn’t get all this example thing, think of my equation as 3738/89 and the book example as 20/5.

Mine one was just a bigger one and required more steps but the main thing we were doing was actually similar to that of book’s example.

Now, what does this all tell you?

By all this, I want to tell you that maths is actually complex but most of the time simple too.

Maths is about learning the main concepts or strategies to solve a problem and learning how and where to use those concepts.

It’s not about just learning to solve an equation. It’s about learning why you solve it the way you solve it. It’s about questioning everything you write on your equation-solving-process.

And you know where does THAT come from? The skill to remember and execute the learned knowledge at the perfect time.

So, solving any equation in maths is about, identification of problems, learning concepts used to solve those problems and executing the method learned at the perfect time with the perfect problem.

And this is a great skill to develop. Every field of life requires this skill.

We all have to, at a time in our life, identify what the problem particularly is, learning concepts used to solve that problem, and finally using the best method to solve the problem.

The tools to become great at anything or solve any problem now lies in our hands. We just have to learn to identify the problem, see the possible ways of solution and finally execution of the best fit solution.

So, to be good at maths, you may require this skill of identification, selection, and execution. I don’t know how to develop them cuz I too lack them but I can tell you one tip to be at least good at maths.

My tip to be good at maths, oh, by the way, I forgot to tell you what does it teach.

So, long story short, it is there to teach us this skill of identification, selection, execution. It is there to make us more logical with every question we solve. In maths, we have to prove everything we do. We have to show or prove how we will use this in the coming steps.

In our life, we take actions and once you learn to prove or show how every action you take leads you to a better future, not to everyone but to yourself, you will be a great strategist and I have told you before how important it is to be a strategist now.

So, my tip for you is to study maths from the beginning. If you want to be good at it then start studying maths from basics and study regularly. Regularity is important. Even if you study advance ones, study regularly to remember or learn what you have unlearned.

So, to conclude:
