Mathematics I

                        In Foundation my Math studies were mostly taught by my Dad. Upon entering Intermediate, we started using textbooks from the library as basis for our curriculum. In this period, I came across algebra and geometry for the first time. As I learned more, I began appreciating math as not just operating rules, but logical representations. In particular, algebra struck me as a simple yet logical basis for formulating problems and deriving answers. Over time, I started to enjoy learning new math techniques for understanding and solving problems, however testing sometimes. They also helped me establish the mindset and approaches for problem-solving in general. Overall, Math was a training exercise in asking the right questions to get the desired knowledge.
