– What was it?
– Who was your teacher?
– When and where did you learn it?

During my fifth or sixth standard approximately, I am not pretty sure but at that time our one math teacher introduced with algebra's chapter Factors. But before inception of that chapter he gave us various maxims; almost 15 to 20. Then he taught us different sums and made us applying those maxims, I really started liking math. However, unluckily I had been absent on one day so could not get the rhythm in next day's exercises which were based on the previous day's maxims' explanations. I got disappointed and mood less. On that day, my sir came to my home and taught me without charging a single penny what I missed on that day and performed all exercises again and enjoyed. So I would say here I was a mediocre student in math but that fellow, with some techniques, reckoning my mindset or strength and with paying complete attention only, I could get grip on algebra. And because of those maxims, the way I had crammed up completely the way my sir had taught, I could survive in math. Luckily I was one of the top five students in math. And later I went in science faculty because of those skills and techniques I learned and because of what I found math interesting and easy. 

– Was it difficult or easy to remember?
I found it easy because of what I had become talk of the town in my friends and some of them got envied.

– Do calculators make it easy to solve math problems?

Not really, only it can make it calculation faster. Apart from that we can't expect anything from it like applying ideas in proper steps whether they are going accordingly or not.

– Is it beneficial to use a calculator?

I don't think so. for business its been a boon to calculate faster. Otherwise students should enjoy the process of calculation by their own selves.

– How did people do math in the past without calculators?

Well, at that time also some sort of methods might have been existed like vedic math and aloha brain development center, basically they teach today with those past ancient methods.

– How did computers change our life?

Insanely it has changed, it has been an integral part of man's live, sorry man's body these days.

– Is computing affecting our math skills?

Not at all, on the contrary, it has smoothen some math skills through its programs and presentations. However, computers have crippled us also for doing math without them.

– What would happen if computers stopped working?

We would be certainly get back to the dark ages, the way we have secured date base in order and maintaining that order again if computers stopped; anarchy might be erupted.

– How would the government cope with it?

Well they should certainly have not only plan B but up to plan Z. Otherwise informal emergency or kind of chaos will be there. Government cant cope with it according to me.

– Lets talk about artificial intelligence.


– Do you think computers’ IQ level is higher than humans’?

Not at all, if all computers also start spending time in leisure and pleasure, in drinking and in gambling; they would more be seemed dumb than humans.
Actually all human beings don't use intelligence at a full throttle. But that doesn't mean that computers are superior than mankind.

– What efforts can make math easy to understand?

simple, authorities should develop interest in people to attend math. if they start taking interest, then surely they would enjoy math provided on their learning skills.
