In my old school I use to love math no matter whom the teacher, what their teaching styles were like, or what grade I was thrilled to learn math. I grasped the concepts quickly and seemed to take the bull by the horns and challenge myself with more tricky problems. I thought it was fun, and I defiantly didn’t take it as seriously as I do now.
