Learning is a continuous process that one undergoes throughout all his life. Schools are the starting phase of this journey where we learn a lot about various subjects. Such lessons stay with us all our lives. I still remember most of what I was taught in school but one particular lesson that I learned in my fifth standard math class is memorable.
I was taught mental math in a lesson during my fifth grade. Mental math is a way to calculate answers for simple mathematical problems using quick calculation skills and facts about mathematics. It helps me quickly solve through various complex problems by the use of methods such as division, multiplication or addition. Practicing mental math can enable us to mentally calculate without the need of writing. I have practiced the lesson to set it in my memory. It is effective, faster, and aids during tough situations that might require quick and logical thinking.
During this lesson I learned various methods to make calculations in different ways which save time during tests or other real-life situations. This lesson also motivated me to practice such exercises to become more adept at estimation and computation of larger figures eliminating the use of pen and paper. I am thankful to my school for providing me with such useful knowledge which is of practical importance in my everyday life.
