The question is Why is math so difficult.
To answer, it I will reverse the question. Why is math sooooooo easy? And Why is Math soooooooooo difficult for many?
Well, the main reason is them. We know that many people hates math. But math never hates us. We do not want to study math. But math is in our everyday life. The main reason why math is hard for many, is that they do not want to study about it! Many people says it is "boring" and "useless" while others found it useful. Math, is seriously veeeeeery easy for those who want to study it. It is just a matter of hardwork. Have you seen a person that wanted to become a mathematician but whenever he/she reads a book about math, he/she becames bored? No right. So that is the main reason and problem. We have schools that teaches math, many just don't care about it. But math, cares about them. Imagine when we do not have math. You bought a toy car, it costs 3,242 pesos, You paid 4000 pesos, without math, your money can be stolen. The reason here is that many people is bored, and don't care about math, math was never hard. Math is just hard because people that studies Math thinks math is hard so they are not motivated or inspired to study math, but they get bored. :3 Many just don't want to study math.
Me too, when I was on Grade 5, I HATE MATH, but when I learn the importance of it, I was inspired to study it. Numbers here numbers everywhere, it can be boring, but it can be fun, it can be fun, but it can be useful.
"Math has never been hard. It is just hard for persons who thinks it is hard"
