Chocolates and calculators are the same

They are both pleasing to the eyes of a mathematician

They are a need and a want, specifically, when exams come

Chocolates serve as comfort to physical hunger

Calculators serve as solace to mental torture.

### Math – Hail to the Queen of All Subjects

Well, that is because, I have a Math Degree and I’m a problem solver.

I get excited when asked to solve clincher Math questions by, say, an officemate over lunch or, by my tutees. Clincher questions, okay? Not, arithmetic ones – like getting the sum of a series of numbers or, 164343574 divided by 645. That, for me, is the lowest form of Math and can easily be done using a cel phone’s calculator. I want the ones that require lots of sheets of paper and ballpen ink – the ones that challenges my logical thinking, problem solving skills and my creativity in designing a proof of a postulate or a theorem. Now that, for me, is exciting!

Now, it is this passion that I’d like to share. Math need not be feared, especially by students these days. A lot of resources are available online that are very helpful in the study of this subject. And if that does not work, personal tutors are also readily available anywhere.

In the succeeding entries I will be sharing Math tales I had, ever since I knew this Queen subject, I will share tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years that I found very useful especially in the lives of the students. Until my next entry, keep on readin’!
