How's your math?

Now that the semester is ending, I have finally got the time to rest a few moments before the new semester would come in. This semester, I was really shocked at how the math of the next generation as decreased to almost non-existence. It's really sad how students now are really struggling on their math. Anyhow, I couldn't blame them, it seems that they have to muster up a few more subjects as compared to us a few years back to the point of their minds blowing up of full information and becoming jack of all but a master of none. Anyway, how is your math personally? As for me, I could definitely say my math is good because of a very good background of it (how my past teachers would pound the math in us like it was our sole-meal hehehe) well, I could certainly see the benefits of having tough teachers of yesteryears as compared of now where students are the masters of teachers! So, how is your math?

I know what you mean. I also know that 1 + 1 = 2. My teachers were very much the same. I miss the yesteryear teachers. They knew how to teach well. Ainge

True enough, teachers these days always depend on the tutors of the kids.

hi laydee... when i was in school, i can say that i am just average when it comes to math! i get good grades in this subject but not as good as my classmates... but among all the subjects in school, this is one thing that i don't really like coz i don't like solving those math problems! and i don't even like fractions! hehe just knowing the basic of mathematics is enough & good for me, since that is the only thing that i use in my daily life... i think students of today, or teachers of today, just use try to simplify the method of teaching mathematics to their students...specially now that we are already modernized...unlike before that everything is manual...

i have completed all of my engineering mathematics papers...and coming to solving the aptitude questions, i have lost my school speed of mental abilities to solve the cunning mathematical and tricky problems, i have to pick back my old school maths book to recover my mathematics speed... so i could compete with any of my mates with my original speed in aptitude questions and analytical geometry... and many of my maths lectures have struggled in the middle of class for not getting the answers, i have solved those questions of my own... people struggle, i go on a high with integration and differentiation.. i struggle a little on Probability and Random Process.... im very cunning in Numerical methods...
