Maths, a subject which is no less than a nightmare for many job aspirants. Students gets chills all around when the name of Mathematics is uttered. But, what is it about math that makes it so difficult? Have you ever wondered? Here are a few things many of us might not have focused on when it comes to math and difficulty:

  • Math seems difficult because it takes time and energy.
  • Many people don’t experience sufficient time to “get” math lessons, and they fall behind as the teacher moves on.
  • Many move on to study more complex concepts with a shaky foundation.
  • We often end up with a weak structure that is doomed to collapse at some point.
