Technically, the answer is yes. But there was one topic which “ruined” my experience of math, and that was adding and subtracting fractions.
Until one day, I met Teacher Tina. On the first day that I met her, she taught me the shortcut to both adding and subtracting fractions, which are:
1. Multiply the denominators, such as 1/2 * 1/3.
2. The denominator is 6, so divide that by the 2 in 1/2 and then multiply it by 1. You get 3.
3. Divide the denominator 6 by the 3 in 1/3 and then multiply it by 1. You get 2.
4. Add 3+2 and then put it on top of 6. Your final answer is 5/6!
The same rule applies with subtracting, except for step 4 you change the plus sign to a minus sign.
So there. When I learned the quick formula, I was able to use my knowledge of fractions for other uses, and it was especially important for me to apply these concepts for my dream job – which is to be an engineer, since engineering requires a lot of math.
