math isn't hard

13 October 2010

Math has always been easy for RJ. I was pretty sure that finance would be on top of his career list in the future. But when they started doing long division in school, RJ started to not like Math. He doesn't want to do his homework the first day the teacher taught long division.

So we had a long talk that night. I noticed that he's just saying, "This lesson is hard" not because he finds it hard. Just the thought of doing "lots of steps" is enough to make him feel lazy to even start solving the equation. I advised him not to rush, in dividing, to avoid a wrong answer.

At the end of our long talk, he's smiling and loving math again.
