Best Ways to Understand mathematics


Practical applications

Ever wondered back in high-school why on God’s green Earth am I learning trigonometry? Surprise, surprise! 7 years later, you open your math textbook while studying engineering and you see all sorts of sins and tans floating across your page.

You’re not alone. Math can feel a little abstract. That’s why it can be extremely helpful to learn where these concepts can be applied practically. When you apply mathematical concepts to your own problems, they’ll stick with you for longer and give you a lot of clarity and understanding on how it works and why it is useful.

You can’t learn math by just reading it from a textbook. It’s a practical subject that requires you to navigate through the problems. To navigate, you must start with a problem, solve that problem step-by-step, and arrive at a solution.

The more you practice and solve problems, the deeper your understanding will get. So roll up your sleeves, grab a pen and a piece of paper, and get to work.

Take it piece by piece

There's no simple explanation to all mathematics, as it's pretty broad, but if you're having trouble try to break each problem into easily digestible parts. From those parts, try figuring out what it is you don't understand. Once you know exactly where you're stuck, it's a lot easier to get out. Make sure to take it slow. It can take a while, sure, but it will give you a better understanding of mathematics all while strengthening your problem-solving skills.
