**The STUPID MATH “finally“ became SWEET!**

You see,most students and people hate math.Do you wonder why?Don't worry,this is about the best method of teaching or learning mathematics.

INTRODUCTION

“O.k. students,let’s start the new lesson,factoring. Factoring is the opposite of multiplying”, and he explained it by an example.Then he’d started teaching us the methods of factoring.

**I think at this point the unconscious mind of a typical student would like to kill itself**,thinking unconsciously that,for 4 sessions the teacher was talking about multiplying the expressions,and the identities,and we did a lot of homework,and now all of a sudden he’s talking about doing the opposite of all of what we had so far,all of the work and effort we had in doing the homework,WITHOUT giving us a good reason of why we should do the opposite now,after all the things.On the next sessions my teacher continued teaching the methods,and required us to do homework,and some of them were hard. [Please,consider that almost all the math teachers around the world teach the subject in the style of my teacher]

The disadvantage of this style of teaching or learning,besides of it’s crazy beginning,is that at some point over the lesson(here factoring) when students try to solve a higher level problem,some thing inside their heads asking them unconsciously ((what are you doing?)),((what’s all the effort for?)), and that’s the point when they start disliking the subject,become disappointed, and give up.This is not just for the story i told you,but it is in every thing.For instance,consider teaching multiplying polynomials and the identities,themselves.Here, there may not be a crazy beginning like for my story with factoring,but again at some point when students try to solve a problem,some thing inside their heads asking them the mentioned questions.

**THE BEST METHOD**,is not like the two above,but to teach that way,for instance in teaching factoring,the instructor after defined factoring,should talk about the most important cases in which we need factoring(which may take at least 1 or 2 sessions), and then teaches the methods of factoring.

The benefit of this method is that the instructor satisfies the unconscious minds of the students at the beginning,that what are you learning here is not non sense and useless,but it is important.I believe that by this method,first of all,

**students learn by love**which is very important,they’re curious to learn more about the subject(here factoring),and doing homework would not be annoying and make them dislike the subject,because they know that we need to factor for some useful reasons the instructor gave them at first. That would be way better if the cases be touchable, came from practices(like an example in building a car in which we need to for instance,factor), and cover more areas of science and engineering.

3.Integral calculus

4.Sequences & Series

**feel**the method.

I don’t mean that an instructor should give the students all the cases in which we need the subject(here factoring) at the beginning,but my point is that we should give them enough of the most important cases at first to make them realize that what are you learning in this session and the later ones is important, and we could give them another most important cases or just cases later.

Whatever i told you above is also for self learning,and not just for math but also for science.

As another subject,consider integral calculus.In a typical course or textbook,the instructor starts by defining integrals,and may be some theorems,then the methods of integration,and FINALLY some cases in which we need integrals,like calculating the volumes of objects and the length of curves,you know,after

**well raping**the brains of students by talking about the non sense abstract stuffs.

The disadvantages are;

1.After some point when students try to integrate a complicated function,some thing inside their heads asking them unconsciously ((what are you doing?)),((what’s all the effort for?)),And that’s the point when they start disliking the subject, and become disappointed.

Many years ago when I was studying in elementary school(2

^{nd}or 3

^{rd}grade),my dear teacher started teaching us multiplication,this way;

She drew 3 rows of apples,each row contained 5 of them.Then,she said “here we got 3 five apples or 3 times 5 apples.Lets count the number of them [she did it].So,3 times 5 equals to 15”.Then,she solved more counting problems for us,gave us home works,and required & helped us to memorize the multiplication table.Later,in the same grade or the next ones,they taught us how to multiply fractions,also how to multiply decimal numbers.

The way my elementary school teachers taught us(which is still the usual teaching method) is just

**focusing on teaching the tools not the real thing,**or some times even forgetting about the real things.

**Multiplication or generally mathematics,are tools for real things**,as designing a car, bridge,…, surveying,discovering the laws of nature. In my owned school my teachers should not teach like that,I mean focusing on less important things like the tools,instead of the most important things like the real things i mentioned.So,in my owned schools,when the teachers want to teach multiplication to the students who are going to learn it for the first time(may be 2

^{nd}graders),the teachers like my 2

^{nd}or 3

^{rd}grade teacher,may start by the counting the number of objects problems,then the multiplication table,and at this moment stop teaching multiplication itself,but start teaching or talking about the most real & practical things in which we need to multiply, as calculating the area of a rectangular farm,but in good details that why do we need to calculate it?who needs it?...

I may go even further,and make my school do not have a course titles as mathematics,but my students would learn the necessary math in their other courses,courses like “how to design a building”.

Here,i just talked about math,but to see how i think we should teach or learn science,also for more information please watch my three videos below;
