My previous experience with Math was IGCSE where I took part in the additional mathematics and cambridge international mathematics course. While the CIM course was compulsory, I took part in the Additional Mathematics course as I have deep interest in algebra and wanted to challenge myself during my IGCSE math journey. I believed that taking the Add-math course would not only allow me to step outside my comfort zone, but also allow for me to indulge in new, fascinating concepts. I have a genuine strong passion for math and have a love for the challenges that it provides me. I do not worry about facing the “tough” problems as my interest and willingness to develop my mathematical knowledge is what allows me to quickly grasp new concepts and learn from mistakes.
I would place myself closer to the right hand side of the spectrum because I learn better when I am with other peers and I also know that there are certain topics that my peers can help explain me better. I also do work things out for myself if I am confident with the concept. Whenever I come across a misunderstanding, I usually ask a friend or teacher to help clarify my mistake and then I proceed to do a lot of practice to nail down the concept. It is in math where I demonstrate my diligence, organised and risk-taking characteristics as I know that math can be very heavy at points and it requires these in order to be more successful. I have developed my diligence, organisation and risk-taking characteristics over time through experience and failures.
In general, I am very excited to take part on this amazing journey and am ready to work hard to learn from this great opportunity.
