### Lesson 1 (01) Mathematics & Me...

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 got A* in the mathematics PSLE exam

I was poor at speed and ratio

2. When I got an A* in my Math Examination, and being able to solve the problem sums that I was not able to in the past
I am weak in solving higher-order thinking sums, but with the help of my teachers, I am improving.

3. Getting an A* Maths for the first time in p5 and then continuing in getting consistent good results in the subject. Algebra is one subject that I had problems with in school...

4. I felt really happy when i got A* for mathematics during PSLE, because I was constantly scoring around the 70-89 range. The challenges I faced with mathematics is that Mathematics is a very difficult subject that requires constant practice to get it right.

5. The best achievement i had in maths is getting a bronze for the Hwa Chong maths olympiad competition last year.This was also one of my greatest challenges in Maths.

6. Math is one of my best subjects in school. I once got full marks for my Math when I was Primary 5. I got a silver medal for my Math Olympiad and bronze for another 2 times. When I got to Primary 6, the questions got tougher and I did not know how to do them, but with the help of my teacher and classmates, I managed to score A* for Maths during the PSLE.

7. Got a gold in SASMO maths competition and A* in PSLE
I don't get Algebra.

8. I was very happy when I discovered that I had gotten A* for maths in PSLE.
I had trouble with fractions and angles and I had to practise alot to get it right.

9. My success is that i got an A* in maths for psle and solving problem sums are fun.
My challenges is that i have problems solving questions in algebra even its easier for some sums to solve in algebra.

10. I experienced success and joy together as I got a distinction in my school's maths exam. Being weak in maths, it gave me a huge feeling of happiness and triumph.
I experienced challenges when I was absent for many days due to serious illness and was unable to catch up to the fast pace of my class. It was difficult understanding and solving sums then.

11. Getting constant good results in math
I missed school for quite long during my P6 year so I had a little trouble coping in math for the first half of the year

12. Math is one of my best subjects as i got A* for it at PSLE and the challenges I have experienced with the subject is that my algebra is quite weak.

13. Success and joys: got my first A*,scored a high grade in my fist exam
Challenges:not very good in algebra

14. I was able to do very well in PSLE, scoring an A* for Mathematics. Also, I have improved slightly in Mathematics among my peers in Primary School, as I was always trailing behind my classmates and friends. Challenges are that it requires a lot of commitment in practicing it and remembering the formulas.

15. I won a few prizes in math competitions and I am happy that I am able to do my parents proud.

I am weak in problem sums and sometimes struggle during exams because of that. But I always do my best and work harder whenever I have problems.

16. I have been getting an A for my maths all the time, coming close to an A* but not getting it. It was a challenge for me in every examination.

17. I was always getting a borderline A for Maths because of my weakness in algebra and also speed, but with the help of my teachers, I am starting to improve.

18. I was very happy when I got High Distinction in News South Wales

I am poor in percentage and ratio

19. In learning Mathematics, I have gone to various competitions such as the SMO and the ACS Maths Competition-which I got a Bronze for. I have also faced many challenges while learning this particular subject. There were times when I did not know how to solve this question and I would ask my parents about it but they also do not know how to do. Then I would go to my tuition teacher and question him or her about this question and they will teach me. I am very proud of my PSLE results for my Mathematics as well-A*.

20. Getting an A* in math for my PSLE was one of my greatest achievements in math. [I did not participate in any competitions related to math.]
I encounter difficulties in speed-thinking questions. My metal sums is really very bad. I also have difficulty in some speed questions.
