Doing calculations on the job, measuring for a home improvement project or estimating change when paying for groceries – math skills are important in everyday life.
Learning math is a bit like learning a new language – at first it can seem really hard, but as your knowledge builds, it gets easier. This is because math concepts are interconnected, so learning one area helps with learning others.
Don’t give up if you begin to feel frustrated. Remember that this is a natural part of learning. Focus on what it will feel like when you solve a problem and realize that you can do it!
