There is a lot of investigation and discovery involved in Math. It takes creativity to solve problems and that’s why Math teachers are often the first persons that other people go to when they want a creative solution to a problem.

 

I don’t know why some teachers still persist in spreading the notion that Math is all about doing things one way all the time. It isn’t.

 

This is one of the reasons why kids grow up thinking that Math is difficult. In real life, you have to solve problems creatively. When you find a method that works well given the resources you have, it doesn’t mean that method will work in another situation. That is, given another set of variables.
