Mathematics has an important role in our life, it not only helps in day-to-day situations but also develops logical reasoning, abstract thinking and imagination. It enriches life and provides new dimensions to thinking. It also helps us understand and make better patterns, maps, appreciate area and volume and see similarities between shapes and sizes. The scope of Mathematics includes many aspects of our life and our environment.
Learning Mathematics is not about remembering solutions or methods but knowing how to solve problems. Mathematics requires abstractions. It is a discipline in which you learn to generalize, formulate and prove statements based on logic. This is necessary for you to develop the ability to understand what it means to prove something and also become confident about the underlying concepts. You need to appreciate that there are many alternative algorithms and many strategies that can be adopted to find solutions to problems.
We hope that these videos will help ensure that you learn to enjoy Mathematics and explore formulating patterns and problems that you will enjoy doing yourselves. You should learn to be confident, not feel afraid of Mathematics and learn to help each other through discussions. We look forward to your comments and suggestions regarding these videos.
