Why do students find maths so hard?
When students are asked to name the most difficult subject in school, not surprisingly, maths often comes out on top. So what is it about maths that we find so difficult?
Maths learning is cumulative, which means it works much like building blocks. You have to gain understanding in one concept before you can move on to the next. Our first building blocks are established in primary school, when we learn rules for add, subtract, multiply and divide. Those first concepts usually build our foundation but all too often for many students this is where the problems start and if not dealt with it can lead to a loss in confidence in the future.
With large class sizes many students don't get sufficient time to understand the core concepts and end up falling behind as the teacher moves on.
Making Maths Less Difficult
Mental maths is the key to confidence in learning maths so this is usually a good starting point.
Good tutors know how to break maths down into manageable chunks so that a student can learn step by step and build confidence in the core concepts first.
