Among learners, Mathematics as a primary subject in school is often considered as a waterloo. There are some students who think and believe that it is their favorite subject, but to most, the study about numbers is a hard nut to crack.  

          Getting along with the study seems to be a rugged grind because of fear that they will not be able to get the correct answers to an equation. Since mathematics is an exact science needing precise and exact answers, frustrations in arriving to erroneous answers turn out as a humbling experience.   While there are learners gifted with the practicality of how to compute, there are those who find it as a mind boggling ordeal to make it through with the discomforts. 

          With the series of failures, the initiative to learn better is being undermined by the thought that the subject will soon come to pass the natural way. Sooner, the lack of interest leads can lead one to   boredom instead of learning to appreciate the meaningful benefits that mathematics can bring to our days. 

          Let it be remembered that no one given birth readily knows how to count in the first place. All  started from zero which goes to say that,  as learners we have to explore the importance of proceeding to  1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9…  and its serial process. No matter what the odds or evens it is basically the same 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9… up to infinity.

          Learners should realize that numbers are indispensible part of life. A better perspective to take the disciplined interest to learn it will be able to stir the minds of everyone of its advantages. Time, distance, weight, height, value, worth, effort, performance and accomplishment depends on what answers numbers will feed us to better explore and appreciate what life is about.

            Let no one only delve of the  negative equation, let it be balanced with the positive equation as well to enjoy what Mathematics is all about.
