    As time changed I realised that whole world is working with maths, so I started to work on the problems, gave it a little extra time to understand the problem, then I realised that math just needs little more practice. Even though I still have difficulties understanding it but now I get good grades than I used to.

    Math used to be my favorite subject until I reached high school. All my highest grades was in math until I took Algebra with a terrible math teacher. I passed the class with a C so I never looked back. My second year in HS I took Geometry and I got an A. The teacher was amazing, made sure the student understood before she moved on to the next topic.

    Math is and has always been my least favorite subject. This is because it doesn’t fit my mindset and it’s difficult for me to wrap my head around certain concepts. I also feel like it’s too inconsistent when it’s being taught which makes it even harder for people who aren’t naturally inclined towards math to get a grasp on it.
