Reflection: Why I Want To Study Mathematics

930 Words4 Pages
INTRODUCTION
Math had been my interesting subject from my elementary class, but my main interest in Math Subjects beginning to grow from Grade 9. I was hugely inspired by the teaching methodology of my Math teacher who focuses mainly on a concept, not just way to solve the mathematical problem. I remember that I love to read the introductory pages of Trigonometry and brief proof about how various formulas in basic trigonometry are obtained. Even though I just need to remember the formulas in order to perform good in my exam, I was very keen to know how those formulas are derived. This process helps me to understand the abstract concepts of mathematics, like trigonometry. Also, in Grade 11 and Grade 12 I was quite famous in math class because

Here, I continued to study advanced Mathematics subjects both applied and pure mathematics. I also get chance to learn about Matlab and Latex. Although we submitted most of our assignment in paper, we have also supplementary class about Matlab and Latex. I learn basic of these course which, I hope, will help me my future education.

Why do you want to study math?this field? This college?
I choose math because I’m very passionate about mathematics (why?). I always like to know how this mathematical concepts and formulas are created and what the real life implications of these abstract ideas are. I choose math as my major subject because of my desire to know more about minute details in this subject matter.

I particularly interested in Number theory (which field of number theory?) where I got a great grade as well. Also, I love Real analysis and Abstract algebra as well.

In the third year of my bachelor's level, I choose Math as a major instead of physics. Although lots of my friends and even some teacher encourage me to major in Physics, because of more financial rewards in the Physics than in mathematics. I decide to major in math because I love to know how some formula are from (I like to know how Chinese remainder theorem is formed, not just what its statements says ) what are the real life application of this my passionate
