I find it interesting discovering new methods of working on the same problem, memorizing specific formulas for certain equations, and proving the joy of being correct when working on a fierce question. Let me clear that confused cloud hovering over your head, this subject I do fairly well is mathematics.

In addition, I've learned a process that may be helpful for whoever struggles with mathematics, which is to ask, review, practice and study. For example, in regards to a student, ask questions if you don't understand something.
