About Students’ Companion in Mathematics by Verity Egho.:
What is mathematics? How are things done in mathematics? What is the real meaning of Equations as we see them in mathematics? And the meaning or some words in math too?… There are things a student is supposed to know or understand first about mathematics before he or she can understand usual mathematics. Lack of knowledge of these certain ‘things’ usually makes the subject difficult to understand – for many students. Unknowingly, students usually move into mathematics without first hearing what mathematics is about, its origins, how things are done in the subject, why alphabets are used in mathematics and their meaning, the meaning of words in mathematics and the real meaning of equations in mathematics explained in plain English Language. Lack of knowledge of these and more surely makes the subject to be like an unknown ground for many students. This book provides an end to all that. Mathematics is a simple straightforward subject if the basic foundation information about the subject are known, including information on how things are done in the subject and the meaning of everything you see in the subject. All these are explained in simple English Language in this book. After reading this book thoroughly, a student would find things in usual mathematics textbooks and what mathematics teachers say or do in a math class to be plain and understandable. The book is planned to bring a student thoroughly into regular school mathematics. It is written for: (1) New High school (secondary school) students, so as to find mathematics easy from the start. (2) Students who are finding mathematics difficult, so as to trace their way into mathematics and start to find the subject easy. (3) And for whoever wishes to know what mathematics is about, meaning of things in mathematics, and how things are done in mathematics.
I am a med school graduate who believes that mathematics and the sciences can be made understandable to all if they are presented from a scratch-level with a language understandable by all. I also believe in tech designs for making life easy for humans, and for making the earth a better habitable planet. I also write fiction (check amazon for other books by Verity Egho). Swimming is my hobby. I also enjoy hiking into a deep jungle to see nature – after i am schooled about all the animal creatures that inhabit a particular jungle to be visited, and there is no attack-loving dangerous one in the list.
I believe everyone with comprehension of written text can understand mathematics, physics and other sciences if there are right books that could bring someone into understanding of these subjects.
