When did you begin to learn mathematics?
It’s been ages since I first started learning math. But if memory serves correctly, it was probably when I started primary school. Of course, it was just simple math back then. You know, it was mostly easy stuff like addition and subtraction. Things got way harder as I got older.
Do you like mathematics?
Honestly, I don’t really like math. I know lots of people enjoy how simple it is. After all, there’s only one right answer. You can’t argue your way into a solution. But that’s actually why math isn’t my cup of tea. Other subjects require your imagination, like art or literature. So I definitely like those better.
Do you think it’s difficult to learn mathematics well?
No, I don’t think it’s too difficult. I’m good at numbers and I often got good marks on math exams when I was in high school. But then again, everybody has different learning styles. Some people might have a hard time with that. It can be a real challenge to think logically. But that’s a big part of learning math.
Do you think mathematics is important in our life?
Well, I hate to admit it because it’s not my cup of tea. But I do think math is really important. Without math, we couldn’t keep track of things in our lives, especially money. It would be super hard to buy and sell things, since that involves adding and subtracting.
Do you often use a calculator?
Well, I don’t use a calculator that often. In my everyday life, I don’t do a lot of math. But whenever I do, I use a calculator. Even though it’s basic math, like adding up how much I spent in a month, I like being able to double-check if I did the problem right.
if my memory serves me (well/right/correctly): used for saying that you think you have remembered something correctly
not be someone’s cup of tea: if someone or something is not your cup of tea, you do not like them or do not consider them interesting
then/there again: used when you have had a new thought that is different from or the opposite of what you have just said
keep track of something: remain fully aware of or informed about something
double-check something: to check something for a second time or with great care
