MY FAVOURITE SUBJECT

7th September, 2012

My favorite subject is Mathematics. It is my favorite because I never have any difficulty with it and I always get good marks. I suppose, I am lucky to be born with a clear – thinking brain. So ever since young, numbers and figures came easy to me. The wonderful things about Mathematic are that, besides some formulae there is nothing else to remember. Every step in solving a problem is done logically, where as other subjects like history and Geography require a lot of memory work. Remembering dates and other facts is hard work compared with the ease and simplicity of Mathematical reasoning.

While mathematics is simple to me, some of my friends have great difficulties with it. I do not really understand and why they get stuck with simple problems and often give up. So I help them when I can. The one advantage I have is being good in mathematics is that I do not have to spend a lot of time on it. Homework and tests are so easy. So, I have plenty of time to study other subjects. Sometimes I feel sorry for my less fortunate classmates who get scolded in class for not completing their mathematics homework. Anyhow I have come to know that human beings can be different in their abilities while they look similar otherwise some of us are lucky to be good in some things while others may not be so lucky.
