Mathematics has been one of the most dreaded subject of all times. There surely have been some people who loved math but then there have been many who have been scared of math more than anything in their lives. This time we are looking at some of the questions that can be asked in the IELTS speaking section.
When did you start learning math?
Math was a compulsory subject in our school and I have been learning it since the day I joined school. However, it was only during my boards exam that I really fell in love with math.
Do you like math?
I would say, yes I do but then it is surely not the only thing that is in my favorite list. If there is anything I love more than math than it has to be English. So, yes I do love math and its problems but for me, English takes priority between the two.
Who taught you math?
There have been many school teachers all through my life who tried teaching me math but I think the one person who really taught me how to learn and do math was my father. He taught me well in the earlier days of my childhood how to study and solve math problems efficiently.
Who has been your favourite math teacher so far?
Among all the math teachers that I ever had, I think the one whom I can consider as my favourite would be Mrs. Monica. She was my teacher during the graduation days and the way she taught math was amazing. Not only did she made the topic clear but also made sure that we did understand everything well. I still remember going to her for doubts and with that one single doubt she cleared so many others.
Is math difficult for you to learn?
I believe just like so many other amazing things in life, it takes lot of patience to learn math. Not only patience, one must have a keen desire to learn it. Because, initially math does poses people with problems that are hard to solve. There are some problems that may force you to leave the subject, but then once the difficult phase has gone by, I do believe that math can truly guide a person in his or her life.
Do you like to use calculator?
I do use calculator and also prefer using it when there are difficult calculations to be made and it will consume lot of time there. But, for simpler arithmetic problems, calculator is something I don’t require. Definitely, however, I feel that it is great to have a calculator by your side to help you solve the difficult calculations.
