2. Các câu hỏi thường gặp về Maths

Are you good at math?

Not really. I have a more abstract brain, so I'm more suited to subjects like art, literature or music. Math has always been the subject that I dreaded in class. In fact, I even failed Geometry in high school.

Do you like math?

Honestly, I didn't really love Math when I was a kid because I found it extremely tedious and rigid. But when I entered middle school, I gradually found myself more comfortable in Math and often got good marks in this subject and this made me even more passionate about Math.

Do you think females are good at maths?

I'm not sure about this because I don't care if one gender is better than the other in Math. However, I have read that there is a stereotype that women do not tend to think logically like men, so it is possible that this affects their math ability.

At what age did you start studying mathematics?

I don't remember exactly but Math is a compulsory subject in elementary school. All children must learn this complex subject from first grade. So I've been learning simple addition ever since.

Do you like to use a calculator?

Yes, I would love to use computers to make things simpler. It allows me to calculate numbers faster without having to think much. I just need to enter the numbers into the calculator, then the correct answer will show up on the screen.

Who taught you math?

My teachers, with the help of my parents at home. It all starts with very basic equations like “If I take away one of these candies, how many candies are left?”.

When did you start learning math?

I started learning basic arithmetic in first grade, geometry in third grade and algebra in fifth grade. Then we studied statistics in middle school and studied calculus in high school.
