as it was with me: I entered the math faculty. the first semester “survived” how many tears there were… and attempts to ask your parents to leave. But no.. I passed everything, then again, and now I think it's a good thing I didn't leave.. Now I can't stand other things. Especially history and ecology. So used to the fact that the brain has to work all day! This is how a person is placed in a language environment so that he begins to speak in English (or in another language), and here: put yourself in the environment of mathematicians and voila, you are already rummaging because there is nowhere to go. And love comes because every day is math. It's everywhere.. everywhere. In our country, particularly suffering people write messages of hatred for Cauchy and Abel on their desks..

To love mathematics, you need to understand why you need it. After this understanding, such questions will no longer arise, you will either discard mathematics as an unnecessary subject, or you will love it

In general, mathematics itself is not a science, but a tool, if you are going to study other natural sciences, then it will be very useful to you, and you need to know the basics (at least a school course)

It is better to read something on the topic in principle “how to start”, or just start, discard all prejudices, open your eyes and see that mathematics is very beautiful. And that it applies to everything absolutely. And that behind every digit and sign is something real, physical. The mistake of many is that they see mathematics as a jumble of formulas on paper, but it is more than voluminous. When I was doing extra math in my school years (small Academy of Sciences, all sorts of interesting problems), we were taught to imagine everything. The degree of a square is a square, and a cube is a cube. These are not just words, it is important to understand, imagine, search, draw.

There is a cool book by Stephen Strogats “The Pleasure of X”, just for those who are interested in trying to love mathematics. ðŸ™‚ By the way, here is an illustration from it that the sum of any sequence of odd numbers, starting from 1, will always be equal to a perfect square:

This is the most elementary example. Everything is more interesting in pictures, try it)

I developed a love for this subject only after understanding it. You see this terrible equation, and you think, ” Oh, this is elementary! Now we will quickly solve all this…”. Motivation increased with the knowledge that if I suffer a little, then later it will be easier and more pleasant for me to solve these complex problems. The main thing is to get started!
