  • Very important
  • An educational method through which a person can build general knowledge in order to achieve something in life
  • Important, because only through learning can one become intelligent

  • Important in a person’s life
  • The best way to get somewhere in life
  • Important in order to become well-read and have a future
  • Something we’re going to need our entire life and which will always be useful, in every domain, I consider that without learning, we’ll never manage in life. There fore, learning is absolutely necessary
  • A major thing in a student’s life
  • Important, because if we don’t learn, we won’t be able to create a future for ourselves
  • Important. Because we’ll have to achieve important things in life

  • Something which must exist in a person’s life, meant to help them in various fields of activity
  • One of the habits which teaches you how to think
  • Compulsory. It helps us develop our intellect without learning we wouldn’t know essential things(reading, writing, calculating)
  • Compulsory; however, we should learn things necessary for our future life. Some of the things we learn will never help up. We’re made to learn things we don’t need in real life
  • Necessary for everyone
  • Important, because we’ll know a lot for tests and homework
  • Something wonderful which will help me in life. I’m going to need knowledge in order to achieve something important in life.
  • The best thing
  • A way of thinking better, of causing the brain to develop and to put neurons to work
  • Something essential for people; to become educated is a very important thing; I consider that learning lies at the basis of human-kind, without it we’re just animals.
  • A solid basis in a person’s life, a necessary source of information
  • Important, because if we have knowledge, we can figure out everything
  • Essential for human beings; without it, people wouldn’t be smart and educated
  • Useful for our knowledge
  • Important because it develops our thinking
  • Very important for a person’s development
  • Very useful in order to develop a brilliant mind

 I believe mathematics is….

  • Important
  • Helpful
  • Difficult to learn but necessary
  • An exact science in which people use calculations, measurements
  • An importance yet complicated science
  • A subject we learn at school which will help us in the future
  • A science we can’t live without, as life makes no sense without it
  • A subject which will help us in life
  • An educational science which will help us in the future
  • An important subject in which we can learn really important things
  • A complicated science which you can’t understand without the help of a specialist; sometimes mathematics is really complex, but useful; math can be learnt more easily through practical activities
  • Very exciting and useful
  • A fun subject which can help us in our everyday life
  • An exact but complicated science which you can’t understand without studying. Math must be learnt, is easy to understand through practical activities led by out teachers, who can explain better so children can understand
  • A beautiful, but difficult subject
  • An useful science which develops one’s mind and thinking
  • Rather complicated, but I need to learn it if I want to achieve things in life
  • A subject as difficult as it is important
  • An important subject, sometimes difficult, but not impossible
  • Not always useful, we should learn things useful four our daily life
  • Fun
  • A subject which stimulates our brain, helping us to keep our nervous system healthy
  • A subject which helps us to develop our intelligence
  • Very difficult, but necessary for important exams
  • Somewhat useful, but sometimes boring and annoying
  • A subject which, if you pay attention and fo your homework, can be easy
  • Compulsory because without it, we couldn’t calculate, use formulas
  • Not necessarily an important subject; the math we’re learning may not help us in the future. I don’t think that in life I’ll come across medians or heights, that I’ll have to calculate the BCA angle when the BC side is 5 centimeters.  You just need to know the basics: addition, multiplication, division, some definitions in geometry etc.
  • Interesting, unfortunately I don’t like it
  • Important, without it we would still live in the Middle Ages, but useless in some fields (medicine)
  • A subject which can help me in life up to a certain point, as a student I hate mathematics with all my heart,but I know it’s important, but that’s all, I don’t like it and I don’t want to do something related to math in the future
  • Uninteresting
  • Essential for everything around us
  • Something we study
  • A subject which I think will help me
  • A subject which makes us think logically because it’s exact
  • Very good and helpful in the world of computers, programming
  • A subject useful only for the people who want to train for a math-related jobs
  • A subject which is easy if you want to learn it
  • Difficult, it’s never attracted me

 I believe the purpose of learning Maths is…

  •  to help me in life
  • to become smarter
  • to help you understand logical problems through calculations, measurements, etc.
  • to help us build a future regarding science
  • an interesting but also annoying experience sometimes
  • difficult and very precise
  • helpful but up to a point
  • important
  • boring
  • necessary
  • useful and important
  • sometimes useful, but I wish teachers taught us  practical and useful for life
  • the purpose of life, without it I cannot exist, it helps me understand what is unclear to me. Among all the numbers and equations I see the logic of all life.
  • to develop our thinking processes and to help us in our life

  • everybody should learn it because it is all around angles, spheres, numbers, shapes
  • for our general knowledge and culture
  • to help us build a better world
  • to improve ourselves
  • to help us find a good job
