Why must there be algebra? Most of the time, we are using subtraction, division, multiplication and addition. It is basically 50-30, 5+10 etc do we go around 50xy + 20y - 30k? I guess algebra is required for more complicated mathematical operations. But again, do we all have to learn this? Do I have to learn it? Perhaps some of you may already know why I am writing this, it is plain and simple, I hate Math!
It took me 10 minutes to complete one problem on prime factorization when others are able to do it in minutes, some seconds. Papers I used are filled with scribbles all over the page. When I was younger, I failed Math all the time and we all know that having repeated failures sometimes lead to discouragement and then a lack of motivation to even try again. This was what happened to me, I told myself, what the heck, since I cannot do Math, I will spend time doing something I am good at and that is play! Guess what, I have no regrets because I really did well in playing!
Here I am though, taking Math once again but the difference this time, I have a great lecturer, I am willing to try and I want to learn and yes I'd still play but I'll do the Math first:)
