This very much sounds like calculations to me. *Calculus*.

*What the……?*

For the average Nigerian student, we know *4* out of *6* *hates**Maths*. Yes, who wouldn’t? With calculations and formulae seeking here and there. I mean maths can be complex at times that it requires logical reasoning. If a dullard were given maths questions to solve, he would probably *choke* on it.

Some of us enjoy *Maths*, its like a maze, looking for one *X* or *Y* and that process alone refreshes your mind.

As if *Maths* wasn’t enough, schools overseas use broader and tougher terms, means of calculations and stuff. Imagine what they call this.

**Calculus**.

*What’s that?*

*Dem one kill this children oh.*

I hated *Maths* in secondary school (high sch). I never enjoyed the class, I always ended up frustrated and confused until I got a tutor. The first tutor I got didn’t help much. I didn’t like him nor his methods. It was like when he spoke through one ear, it came out my other ear and it’s gone. I just couldn’t learn. He looked to me like those dubious teachers trying to frustrate the *Maths* itself.

I finally had the courage to tell my vice principal to change him.. And there started my love for *Maths*, though am indifferent about it. This tutor taught me the *Maths* thoroughly that I had no option but to pass. I came first in *maths* at a time when I was no longer being tutored and even did well in W.A.E.C.

I spoke with my younger sis two days ago (so this post is dedicated to her) and got to know she hated Calculus. I felt for her and gave her the best possible advice and shared my experience.

In fact I was opportuned to teach some Lebanese children last month and had to go through a test, solving British *Maths*… Tasky and so not easy but still easy ( *it’s actually easy when you realise the way to the answer than when you started solving, cracking ya head)* because I had to do critical thinking.

The *Maths* children take at international level can’t be compared to the local *maths* here, unless one goes to an international school here ( *though i remember we do qualitative reasoning too, i failed that a lot then)* Little wonder those kids need tutoring!

*Who are the formulators of this thing anyways? Tell them to stop! Lol*

**Calculus, Maths** whatever is usually compulsory for grad.. Maybe we should find a way to ease up things for these children, even adults, because have seen maths in advanced forms and *mehn*, no go area for me. Imagine when I was going for SAT lesson, *I wan die.*

Please oh The people that are inclined to this *Calculus, Maths* thingy and love it would be fine and do well with it.

Calculus! Brrrrrrh!

*May God help us through the wahala we carry ourselves enter.*
