Education » IS MATHEMATICS REALLY THE MOST DIFFICULT SUBJECT? by: Osaroju(m) .:. Fri, 26 Feb, 2021 - 07:59:52:am GMT
Hello!

The topic could have also been given as a question, which subject in the Secondary school level is considered the hardest?

Why the need arose to answer this question is because in a lot of occasions, a lot of people and students of both the junior and senior secondary schools have admitted over again that mathematics is not just one of many, but the hardest subject.

There are some other few who are still in school or having past that level feel that in fact mathematics is the easiest.

So let's all drop our opinions on this question.

Which subject is the hardest. Do not forget to explain your reasons

Maybe the issue is not with the subjects but our brain. Although, majority will agree that mathematics is the hard subject, but what why is it not hard to some, why is it the easiest subject to others?.
There is this course mate of mine, a guy. I can say he is a mathematics genius, he is good in anything calculation, but found other subjects so hard.
Of course, I am an opposite of him. Apart from mathematics, there is still other subjects dislike more.
So, I think it is about the basis of our knowledge, it is the first impression we had about a particular subject., Or maybe we assimilate differently.
But sincerely speaking, it requires hard work to be good in mathematics, because you must understand the basis.,and if the foundation is not strong enough, the building will be shaken.
I think that it what is affecting some of us, the subject may not be the problem.

                                  Well from my own point of view I feel mathematics is the toughest subject anyone can study in school.
                                  Mathematics deals with a lot of calculations.
                                    Which eventually helps one to be very logical in reasoning.
                                      In secondary school, mathematics was so broad that they had to create another subject in secondary school.
                              Which would ensure that mathematics is totally covered in senior secondary school.
                                 That subject is called further maths.
                                     While i was still in the university, mathematics was my biggest fear.
                                   I found it very hard to cope with calculations and memorising of formulas.
                                      My lecturers were not helping matters in any way as they were giving us the right way to go about solving problems in mathematics.
                                        I had to pay for extra lessons for mathematics class just to pass mathematics.
                                       Of which I did.
                                        Although it was by narrow escape.
That is how tough mathematics is.

Well for me I will disagree because if there is one thing am sure about me is that I succeed in anything I intentionally decide to do and believe I will excel in. While I was in secondary school, at first I do struggle a lot with math but when I got to senior secondary school, I became so determined to start excelling in math and guess what? I did excel in it. Whatever topic I was determined to know and fully understand, I was able to know and fully understand and excel. You will  only me not excelling in one particular aspect of math because I willing told myself that I don't want to know it. So yes math isn't the hardest subject after all, I did futhermathematicsand I was among the best in futhermathematics.

It is not because I focus and was determined to know math that am disagreeing that mathematics isn't the hardest oooo. 
Have only had little experience about university life and I have come too realized every student in every department will be complaining that their course is stressful. Its consuming and so on. So at last every subject is difficult! Every course and every subject is just the hardest!.
While growing up I realized another reason students don't perform well in maths or science related or anything that requires logic is because we focus more on theory part. Our practical aspect is very poor that is one of the reasons why people will be complaining. Maths isn't peom or writing that deals more with imaginative. Maths is practical. Its requires being smart and very logical and it is things that one can see that one becomes logical about it.
So yes I still maintain the fact that mathematics isn't hard. Is there anyone having difficulty with it, all you need to do is to open your heart more to it, let go of the fear that it is magic, devote more of time and energy to it and constantly tell yourself that you can excel in it and you will. And this goes for any course or any subject we may be finding it difficult.
No course or subject is hard, not at all.
Sometimes all may even need is a good tutor and you are good to go.

Mathematics is not that hard as students think, mathematics is a one step after another if you already know the formular, mathematics is a subject which ever students supposed to have passion for  but due to phobia that  mathematics is very hard then majority of students loos hope in mathematics. 

I have  a friend  when  I was in secondary school  whenever the mathematics teacher come inside the classroom he will try to run out side the class  just because he did not have interest and passion for mathematics. 
Mathematics is by example treat as much as example as you can, don't be lazy if you  feel the example which your teacher gave you in the classroom is not  enough go for extra class, mathematics is a  continuous learning which doesn't have an end you learn more every day, mathematics is not the hardest subject for someone who  has interest but it is hard for those who does not have interest. 
Up to  the University level no one can escape mathematics you will do it in one way or the other as the case may be so when you already have  it at the back of your mind that  it is hard then it will be hard believe you can do it then you will surely do it..
Mathematics is not a he hardest subject but lack of interest make it hard.

                                    While I was in school, mathematics was my weakness.

                                     It was so tough for me that I found it very hard to come for mathematics classes.
                                       The mathematics teacher I had in school made things very worse for me.
                                        He was very strict and wicked.
                                       His method of teaching was very poor.
                                       Aside that he never cared if we understood what he was teaching or not.
                                      The fact that I hated my mathematics teacher just made me hate mathematics in general.
                                       When I gained admission into the university, passing mathematics as a subject was a bigger problem.
                                          I had to wait for extra tutorials and also wait behind during classes so that my colleagues would put me through.
                             In my university days I passed mathematics with an E grade.
                                    That is how tough mathematics was for me.

Respect shouldn't be one sided because everyone should be respected no matter the class they belong to in the society. The saying that "respect is reciprocal" is so true to living on earth because as much as you respect people, you also have a desire to be respected. Respect is an attitude of consideration or high regard for something or someone.

In whatsoever setting of interaction there should be regard for one another because every individual has a reputation and regardless of the level of such persons reputation which majorly could be low or high. The regard you have for a person will have either a positive or negative effect on his or her self esteem. Take for instance, a timid person gets into a queue for registration and almost before his turn to be registered another person without regard goes to the front of the registration attendant to get registered while the timid person calls his attention to the wrong attitude but instead of him to apologise or make his reason for the rush known he talks rashly at the timid person with flimsy excuses. Then the timid person couldn't talk back at the ill mannered person because of the weight of words from the other party and fear of not having his voice heard by the majority. Such act is borne out of disregard for human and it's bad for societal interaction because everyone in the society has equal rights according to the law.

Building a good self esteem is important because it will make you up as one with great worth and grants you a platform for acceptance as you interact with people in various areas of life. Good self esteem starts from realizing how you'd like others to see you, then you settle into personal development with conscious effort to present yourself as a brand worthy of societal relationships which could be in business, religious, marital, recreational etc.

Mathematics is not that hard, one of our problems is that even before attending the class we have put it in mind that mathematics is difficult 🤣 .

Nothing is difficult when you put your mind to it. Maths is a very tricky subject but it is not magic or impossible to know. You just need to calm down and put your mind to it.



math is a very simple and easy subject to do if you have the interest to know it. If you have the will and the determination to know it it will become very simple for you believe me.

Math is a very compulsory subject in education, math is a subject that we don't like to learn, some people have this issue.





it is just what it is. Am very sure that 50% of teenager or students fine it hard to learn it too.

@Joyodishika247:

Math look hard, may be the way some lecturers do explain maths. It like speaking in number, when most of student don't know the very basic of mathematics and they are expected to understand the advance ones. They should make sure the student understand the basic first before they move on to the advance ones.

Sometimes I wish math should be a non compulsory subject because I had a hard time with mathematics. The day maths turned to x and y, I couldn't not just get it anymore and math in science is further math. Sometimes they are mixed together.

Mathematics is not difficult, most people sees mathematics has one of the easiest subject in school curriculum today, it people who don't have interest or are not too smart that will say mathematics is the hardest subject in our school curriculum.



We all have one head but our interest are different. So for me mathematics is not hard.

Maths is not the most difficult subject in our school curriculum today, people who says maths is hard are people who don't have interest or their brain capacity is not capable of calculating maths.



So maths is not hard, we just need to focus and have interest in it if we want to be able to understand it.



People who study maths in the university are the ones who love the course. And they have good interest in it.

Well that's your opinion, and I respect that.



But talking about maths like it's so easy, well it's easy for you.

Most of my colleagues that studied mathematics I the university are finding it very hard to graduate because of one or two carry overs in mathematics.

You might think that mathematics is simple, but the majority of people that dislike mathematics is more pronounced than the majority of people that like maths.

But the higher you go, the tougher it becomes.


When I gained admission into the university, mathematics became a very big problem for me and that is why I feel that the higher you go, the tougher it becomes.

Yes, it is! It really is the most difficult subject ever. There's nothing in this world that can change my mind, I tell you! Nothing at all. Some people say it's the easiest because there are formulas for everything and all you have to do is follow the instructions and all. I disagree! If it was that easy, people wouldn't fail maths like that. Some people also say that if you do like five sums per day, you would be a good maths student before you know it. That's a huge lie too. They say English is the hardest subject but there's no way I'm agreeing with that. English is the subject I find the easiest alongside French. But Maths is the hardest for me. I'm glad I'm done with it.

We have different subjects and there is no course without its own problem. People’s perspective about the subject is what makes it difficult because no matter how they try to solve the problem they won’t still arrive at the solution all because of what they believe.

All subjects have its own strategies and way to solve them so all what you need is to first analyze all the issues about the subjects. Planning is what help in the affairs of life because whatever you failed to plan for can’t give you the result you so desire. The part of planning is where many people failed because they want to do things quickly whereas they forgotten that whatever you rush to do will end up been shattered.

As a student you don’t start planning the moment examinations is approaching but unfortunately this is what many student do and its due to lack of knowledge. Many complain that a subject is difficult but they are faced with these challenges because they failed to follow the right instructions that will lead to outstanding success so instead of complaining be ready to take responsibility.

Taking responsibility is good but what is the best is committing all you activities to God. The Word of the Lord says by him all things were made and without him was nothing made that was made so that implies that no subject is bigger that God and no subject can limit God’s plan concerning you so get committed and he will make your paths to keep shining and shining unto the path day.

It actually depends on who you ask. If you ask any of my sisters, they'll tell you outrightly that it's the most difficult subject ever bit if you ask me, it's not. My eldest sister was a commercial student and my immediate elder sister was an art student. If you take away the accounting course that my eldest sister did and the regular maths that the other one did, they didn't actually have any opportunity to do anything in maths apart from the usual. I was a science student so I was exposed to so much calculations in physics, chemistry, electronics, further maths and all. I had a lot of experience in calculations so maths came easy for me. Therefore, I can't say it's hard. It's actually really nice and straightforward.

The maths issue became so much of an issue in our school back then that the school could no longer ignore it and had to do something about it. Normally, we the senior students used to be divided into different classes according to the area we were studying i.e art, science and commercial. The art and commercial students were the ones who weren't performing well in Maths so they thought that they should mix the members of the three classes together instead of breaking them apart so that at least maybe the science students would be able to impact knowledge on the other and so that the art students could also help the science students out with English too. It was a win win situation for all but sadly it didn't work out so well. It basically remained the same.

Is mathematics hard or not?
Well for me, it was just tough for me during my university days.
I really struggled to pass mathematics in my university days.
But all the same I scaled through with an E in mathematics which is to show you how hard it is.

I didn't study mathematics in school but most of my colleagues that study mathematics can attest to that.

Most of them struggled to graduate while some still have extra years in school.



Mathematics can be easy for primary and secondary school level.

But it is very had in the university level.

Wow, to some this is not a question to argue about they would definitely say that mathematics is the hardest of all subjects anytime anywhere in school system.

The truth is that mathematics is not the hardest of all the subjects it just requires time to work out. There are other subjects that are so much more difficult or that are more difficult than mathematics.

I think the problem is that many people do not give out time to workout mathematics and that is the problem once you don't give out time to workout mathematics you can't understand it, so they believe that it is hard.

Majorly from statistics you will find out that it is the ladies that finds mathematics most difficult because they prefer to read directly instead of taking our time to calculate the equations.

Majority of students are lazy when it comes to mathematics ,mathematics is hard but depends on how you take it personally.
Taking the statistics of students in primary school about seventy percentage of primary school students does not have internet in mathematics then same thing applicable to the secondary school .
Why students sees mathematics as a difficult subject is that they have no interest in anything calculating aspect.
If you have intrest in mathematics then it will be simple to you .
