All about Numbers

A lot of you might not know that i am a Statistician.  But whoa, before you think i’m a Math whiz let me tell you this, i’m not.  hahaha!  Well, i used to think that i am during elementary and high school days.  I even won on Math Contests. I like numbers because you don’t have to memorize a lot of stuff if you understand the concept and analyze things then you can ace any exam.

However, everything changed when i entered college.  I nearly flunked my first Calculus subject.  I cried really hard after that first exam.  It was a very humiliating experience but i learned to study and really prepare for exams.  What helped me a lot are the nice friends i had in our org.  They tutored me for free and everything was a breeze afterwards.

I’m sure a lot of kids today are overwhelmed by numbers too.  It is important that they are not scared of numbers from the very beginning as it will hinder their learning.  They should view math as fun.  It is good that there is SCORE that provides Math Tutors. This is a great help for parents and kids who are having difficulties in Math. Their aim is to help children ages 4 to 14 make significant academic progress through innovative tutoring environment.

talaga? sabagay sabi nila if you are good in math, chances are you are poor in english. Maganda yung ginagawa mo na nagbabasa. Kasi may mga rules din kasi na kailangan acquinted tayo. pero i think practice makes it perfect. so just read and write a lot. in time we will be able to improve. :)
