Background of the Study
According to St. Augustine, the danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.
Mathematics is an art, language, or a body of knowledge that specify to numbers and logical structures. It is used in our daily living. For example, at work, school, and home or even in many simple things we do. This is very important but do we notice that many people hate Math especially to the students who lack of knowledge in Mathematics.
According to J. R. Newman, the most painful thing about Mathematics is how far away you are from being able to use it after you have ...view middle of the document...
Math, more than any other subject, requires us to think clearly, cleanly, and often abstractly. Therefore, there’s no formula for us to follow, and it is challenging in ways we can’t completely prepare for.
The interest of the researchers focuses on what are the causes of students to hate Mathematics and what are the possible solutions to solve this problem.
Statement of the Problem
The main purpose of the study is to find out the reasons why many students hate Mathematics.
Specifically, it will try to answer the following questions:
1. Why many students hate Mathematics?
2. What are the factors that affect the interest of the students in Mathematics subject?
3. How will one solve or face the problems related in Math?
Importance of the Study
The researchers upon the completion of this study desired to be of help to the following:
To the department heads- This can be a credible source material especially to those who are conducting research related to education of the students.
To the students- This study could help them improve their mathematical skills.
To the teachers- This could serve as...
