Share with us...
• the success and joys that you have experienced in learning Mathematics
• what are some challenges you have experienced with the subject

1. I enjoy doing math as it is challenging and i like challenges. Every year, i will do the next years maths syllabus. When I have problems, I will just ask my dad for help.

2. i like Mathematics as it is a joy to study this subject and my strongest subject is mathematics. The most challenging problems, problem sums as they require calculation and steps to solve it. Other than problem sums, the other challenge is to prevent myself from having careless calculations error which may be a problem for me.

3. I enjoy learning math as all you have to do is remember things.

4. I like mathematics very much. I score the highest in mathematics of all my subjects.Mathematics is my favourite subject. My favourite topics are fractions and geometry. my good experiences were getting the highest marks in the class in maths.my challenges were that I had to revise a lot as I have a tendancy of forgeting concepts.

5. I like mathematics as it is very challenging and stands as a harder challenge as compared to other other subjects. The higher standard of mathematics here in Singapore makes mathematics equally challenging.

6. The success i have achieved is a A* in maths which boosted my score in maths. The joy i had in maths is that maths is fun and many times in primary school I stayed ahead of my class and always loved to point out the teacher's own mistake.

7. Even though Mathematics is not my best subject, I do enjoy learning it as it is a very interesting subject. When there is a question that i find hard to solve, but in the end am able to, makes me feel very happy. However, the biggest challenge that I must overcome is carelessness.

8. Mathematics is one of my favourite subjects. It is my second strongest subject. I enjoy challenging problems sums most interesting as I enjoy solving them.

9. I love Mathematics and maybe thats why Mathematics is one of my strongest subjects. To me the greatest joy is solving a challenging math question. Simply because it gives me a great sense of achievement when I manage to solve the question but the thing is I always make careless mistakes so I try to be more careful in solving question though trying to overcome that problem I am still as careless as ever.

10. My challenges with mathematics is that the curriculum in Singapore is too high for me so I may not be able to do some questions posted by the teacher. another challenge is there are too many questions that boggle my mind so I may not finnish on time or may not even finnish all the questions.

11. I enjoy learning mathematics as it is my favourite subjects. For my PSLE, my only A* was in maths. Some of the challenges i faced when studying maths was that I could not solve some of the questions my teacher posted. But however after learning the steps, i was able to solve that type of question with ease

12. I just love Maths. It has been my strongest subjects since a long time I discovered my talent in Maths in P1. I am very proud to say that I have received 100 in two class test and have always received A* in my exams and to make a long story short I love maths. My bro told me that maths in sec school is different from primary school. I just hope do well in my Maths any way

13. My joy in learning maths is that i can learn new and different ways to solve a single question, and my success is that maths has been either my strongest or second strongest subject. The challenges i faced in maths are me being super careless and sometimes I get too nervous to think when time is running out.

14. I love mathematics as it has always been a straight forward subject to me and I usually top the class in it. Though I am good at the subject I still hold problems in extremely hard speed questions.

15. I like to do maths because i can approach and solve the problems in different methods. I faced problems when it comes to critical thinking questions. It takes me a while before i can understand and solve the question. But, I score well almost everytime in maths.

16. I LOVE Math because it is a subject which is quite complicated, but once you know all the formulae and the type of question, everything will become very easy. There was once, in Lower Pri that I hated math as I wasn't good at it, it just wasn't something that came to me easily. So my Mum help me revise my math,doing math everyday after school, remembering the formulae doing more and more problem sums...till the exams, and guess what! It all paid off my math results went all the way up from 70++ to 90+++!!During the revising of Math I started to understand better and better everyday, and not for long I got interested in it...then, I love it! And that is my story of "Me & Math"

17. I love maths as it is the core subject that pulls my overall score up. Solving Maths problems also gives me a sense of achievement. I love challenges and I have already started on some of the sec 1 topics.

18. Mathematics is one of my favourite subjects.

Whenever I finally done with difficult Math problems or get a high score for Math tests/exams, I would feel very elated. :)

I like it when Math lessons are funny, filled with stories (Like last year), and my Form/Math teacher would give us intriguing questions and we would have to present the answers to the class. At the same time, we also learnt to understand different types of questions.

I am very prone to making careless mistakes and I do not remember formulae easily. Speed and Algebra has been bugging me for a long time, and no matter how much I try the questions, I would always get them wrong.

During the exams, I was also unsure of the answers and I 'whited-out' the original answers (which was correct) and replaced it with another. In the end, I got it wrong. (That was. PSLE. >:()

19. Sorry for posting this late because I did not realise there was another comment section.

The challenges I experienced were the fact that my maths were so terrible in P5 that I had to go for remedial. However I worked a lot harder and got and A* for every major test. This is actually my success, enjoying the fact that my hard work had paid off

20. I like Math because it is sometimes simple, just with a lot of steps. I sometimes make careless mistakes but i think i should overcome my careless mistakes.

21. I experienced many challenges in maths as I have to remember methods, not just that but there are also too many methods to memorize. Fortunately I got an "A" for PSLE

22. i have experience joy when i score well after putting in lots of hard work.The challenges i have encountered are numerous but the most common on is problem sums...but i am working hard to try and overcome it
