“What is The Point of Learning Mathematic”. From that title, perhaps we have more answer for that question. Some people said because mathematic is compulsory subject at campus. Some people said that mathematic is the basis of all sciences. Some people said that mathematic can give train to our brain with various tricks in solving problems.
More people don’t like mathematic, even they are allergic and afraid to studying mathematic. More reason because of imprecision in learning and teaching, so the effect did not enjoy when studying mathematic.
I really love mathematic with arithmetic, mathematical proof, and testing with mathematic. Algebra, Riil Analysis, Geometry, Calculus, Statistic, and many more other branches of mathematic that can give positive side to our daily life. The first, I thought that learning mathematic only need calculator and count the numbers. But it is totally wrong because mathematic focuss on analysis, comprehension, thinking with logic and imagination.
Sooo what is the point of learning mathematic… my experiences, other’s experiences and opinion got the point of learning mathematic, there are :
- Mathematic teaches us to never give up. Mathematic is an exact science. All of mathematical proofs and all of mathematical problems can be solved although it will need a long time to solve it. In solving its, we will use more methods until we get solution. It teaches us to never give up, trust and focuss in solving when we face the problems.
- Mathematic teaches us to critical thinking. We have more methods in solving mathematic’s problems to get right and accurate solution, and we can use all of that methods, but we will choose the right, accurate and efficient methods that can solve its problem, and also in our daily life, we have more methods or way to solve our problems, and we have to critical thinking to choose the right, accurate and efficient methods.
- Mathematic teaches us to systematical thinking. With the rules and systematic way to solve mathematical problems, it has
- accustomed us to act and think systematically. All that we do must have a systematic basis and according to the rules, then we can easy to solve the problems without disobey the rules.
- Mathematic teaches us to be accurate, careful and not sloppy. In solving mathematic’s problems, we have to notice the numbers, the methods and also how to analysis it with accurate. Writing the numbers, placement of commas, operation of numbers, etc. It must be done by accurate, careful and not sloppy. If we do wrong, it can get fatal error in the final solution. It teaches us always act and think with accurate, carefully and not sloppy and we will be far from fatal error.
- Mathematic teaches us to be patient. It is not easy to solving mathematical problems. But we have to be sure to solve it although it needs more time. Never give up and accurately when we give complicated and long answer. We will not despondent to solve it. If we do wrong method, we will try to reanalyze again to get right answer. Even we reanalyze from the beginning until we get solution. We feel satisfied after we get answering based on our own mind and do not do cheat. This teaches us always to be patient to face every problem and be sure that we will get goodness and positive in life.
- Mathematic is basis of other sciences. It is not only in arithmetic or accounting, but also in all of sciences. It can be applied in all of sciences and knowledge, for example economic, social, politics, criminal, etc. Thinking with mathematic can support to thinking and with other sciences and knowledge.
- Mathematic teach us to think deductively. We get conclusions by common things and not in specific things so we spare from the conclusion by chance. Example myth. Some people will think that accident of train is caused by myth reason like victimizing, and every year that place will ask victim and more accident will happen. But factually, we must reanalyze logically, what causes it, it could be by machines error, rail error, human error or other rationale reasons.
- Mathematic teaches us to not easy to trust and believe in a short incident. It will find all reasons and try to positive thinking to accept it. Every incident has reasons why it has occurred.
- Mathematic teaches us to be firm or emphatic in taking decisions. It won’t like rambling and uncertain things. All things logically and decided base on seen, proper analysis and rules.
That’s some of the point of learning mathematic. Very positive, and no reason for us to hate and don’t like mathematic. If we frequently do exercise, curious about the answer and frequently learning mathematic in any method, we will assume that mathematic is so attractive and not difficult. Learning mathematic is the development of rationale thinking and can be applied in daily life.
Mathematic is so beautifully and so attractive. More positive things in learning it. Let’s throw all of negative thinking about mathematic. Try to like and love mathematic and everything in our life. If we enjoy and love it, we will follow it with confidence and patient. So that we will be able to keep and care about it.
Let’s enjoy and love mathematic…^_^
