Math is my favorite subject. It is well disciplinedand never breaks its rules. Two plus two is always four and four minus two is always two.
Math is like a story. Though its books may have all rotted away and been long forgotten, a story is never really gone. A story never changes, just like the rules of math.
I also like math because there are many different ways to solve a problem, many different X-rays to see it through. As many lenses as the number of trees in Maine.
There are at least two different algorithms, to calculate any addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division problem. Standard algorithms, partial products, the borrowing method, and more.
I also learned a lot from a book. The book was called The Grapes of Math. It showed me ways to quickly add up a pattern of objects, like by bunching things into friendly groups. Or finding an array, multiplying to determine the number of objects inside it, and adding outside leaders or subtracting missing inside followers.
Lastly, I like math because everything involves it. Take sports for instance.
I plop myself down on the couch and flick the TV on to watch football. Whether or not it’s college or pro, to fully understand the game I have to know that the field is one-hundred yards or threehundred feet long, and a touchdown’s six points, an extra point’s one, a field goal: three, and a safety’s two. It’s math all over.
There are lots more reasons I like math but I had to limit myself to three. There is no limit to math though. Math is defmitely my favorite subject.
