1. a)the joy of learning maths, during P1 i was able to learn how to count to 100 very easily.

2. a) The joy of learning maths is that I learn alot of things in my primary school life.

b) in primary 5 and 6, I did not usually pay attention in class. so I got a b in maths for psle..... I can overcome this problem by paying more attention in class this year.

3. The joy was that i got highest in class for math because i worked hard :). I experience some difficulty with applying some methods to hard questions or combining methods to solve a hard question. I think i can overcome this problem by practicing more :).

4. The success in mathematics for me is that I am able to understand the concepts and fundamentals. The challenges for this subject is that some topics like 'speed' was hard to understand. I think I would be able to understand these challenges by studying attentively and responsibly.

5. Mathematics is very fun and intriguing as it lets me solve challenging puzzles.It is also my best subject and I always try to achieve full marks but I have only achieved highest 98 marks.

Mathematics is my favourite subject. Although I am weak in angles, I will read and study more about angles to improve on it. Angles are sometimes confusing so I must try to solve hard angle problems at home.

6. The success I have ached in Maths is learning new things and getting good grades.

I have faced many challenges in Maths one of them is not paying attention.I could copy down notes and listen more carefully.

b) I can't really solve maths problems as I can't remember many ways of solving the questions. Nevertheless, I'll do as much as I can this year and try to solve all the questions even if I can't solve them.

21. (a) My previous Math teacher always incorporates her lessons into many challenging yet enjoyable activities which helps me to learn better because I always try my best to complete the activities. Best of all, I find that at the end of the day, I always learn something new.

(b) Sometimes I do not understand my teacher's explanation but I just keep it to myself. I really should ask questions if I do not understand because I know that if I do not do so, I will be behind the rest of the class.

22. a) i accomplished many difficult questions and can solve them easily.

b) there was one concept that i could not master. after my mom taught me how, it was easy
