Get a Maths Tutor
There is no fast or quick fix when preparing for exams and even less so for maths. As most people know, once you fall behind with mathematics it takes a lot of work and effort to catch up.
This is why it is important to get a maths tutor early in the year so that the maths tutor can raise and deal with any concerns as early as possible.
How can a Maths Tutor help?
The value of maths in school and getting a maths tutor cannot be overstated, especially in South Africa today and especially if you or your child is interested in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Eningeering and Mathematics).
Many university courses require mathematics and admission for courses like engineering, biology, actuarial sciences and many more require that the learner have passed maths well at school.
It may be surprising to find that subjects like maths and science are also required for entrance into ‘non-science’ courses at university.
A maths tutor can help with guiding you or your child as they are likely already studying in the STEM fields. Such a maths tutor can also provide valuable real-world information as to what can be expected.
Thus it is very important to check the subject requirements at university before deciding not to take maths. It is also well known that some of the greatest artists were all great mathematicians, being good at maths is many times an indication of someone who can be very creative. Understanding maths takes hard work and effort, ask the people who have studied, and are currently studying it.
Maths is also something used every day, how we budget our income, how we pay tax, and for better ways of saving and investing our money. Taking all of this into consideration we can see that maths and doing well in maths is very important.
