The Math Phobia
Math has always been a nightmare for most of the students. It is widely agreed upon that most of the students find it to be the most difficult subject of all. Math also happens to have a high failure rate worldwide. Therefore, most of the students hire Math tutors as they require extra tutorials for it.
Nonetheless, the basic reason for Math being a nightmare is the horrendous way this subject has been portrayed to students. Math is the most dreaded subject by a layman as this is a general tendency of people to be afraid of something they do not know or cannot do.
“Math is a very tough subject.”
“You must take extra Math tutorials to excel in this subject”.
“We must hire you a Math tutor because it is a tough subject to handle.”
These are the common phrases used by parents, teachers alike to make children realise the importance of Math. The importance of this subject cannot be denied indeed. The only thing that sets this subject apart is that it cannot be chewed down by cramming. Math needs to be handled with a different approach. It requires conceptual understanding and their practical application which can only be achieved if it is practiced with consistency and dedication. However, the teachers and parents must realize that they need to help their children overcome the “Math phobia”, as only then they stand a chance of excelling in this subject.
Sabaq Foundation has come up with an initiative to help students overcome their “Math phobia”. Our main objective is to create world class free video tutorials for Pakistani students. Our initiative intends to eradicate the need for hiring Math tutors as well as going to after-school tuition centers. Moreover, the students can also overcome the problem of conceptual haziness arisen by under-qualified teachers and poor teaching standards in Pakistan.
Our videos cover the complete syllabus for 9th & 10th grade’s Matric/O Level Math. Complete syllabus of Cambridge & Pakistani boards including Federal, Punjab, Sindh, KPK & Balochistan. Videos on any topic including Algebra, Matrices, Trigonometry, Pie, Geometry, Quadratic Equations, Variations, and Statistics can be watched on our website.
