When we go to school, we are bounded to learn things about our country and something about the legends that left a few subjects for us like Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics because they used to believe that these things would help us to grow in real life. It will make our life easy which is true at some point.

But, what will happen if a certain number of students find a particular subject really difficult to study? Will they be able to score good marks in that? Whether you accept it or not, math is hard after a certain class. If you look at the syllabus of mathematics after 10th standard, you will realize that it is actually hard and not everyone’s cup of tea.

But if you have a strong mindset then math can also become for you, all you need is a different point of view and then you will automatically stop thinking about why math problems are so unrealistic and you will be able to get your answers correctly.

Today, we are going to look at the top 7 reasons why some students can’t understand math and they think that it’s impossible for them.

## Why is Math so Hard for Me?

I know you might be in a hurry and want to know all the reasons straightaway but before directly moving I have a quick tip for you. Just get the printout of these **inspirational quotes** from this article and then paste them into your room so that you can feel motivated daily.

Hope you like them. 🙂

### 1. Poor Understanding Skills

A student who has already decided that math is difficult will always feel uncomfortable while solving even simple problems. In most cases, we have also seen that it become impossible for them to decide where to start from or how to sort things.

The solution to this problem is that they should not see this subject as a difficulty and start with small and easy problems in the starting phase. The more they will get a correct answer, the more confident they will get in the subject.

### 2. Directly Solving Complex Problems

Like we said above, one of the main reasons why many students think that mathematics is hard is because they directly jump to the complex problems in excitement without looking at the smaller ones.

Suppose, suddenly one day you get a thought that you have to crack the highest marks in the upcoming exam and you start practicing the problems, but later then you realize that you are not getting the correct answers. In this way, your confidence goes down and you didn’t like to study it at all.

### 3. Patience is Missing

Finding answers to complex questions is a daunting task. You need to write steps sequentially and a simple mistake can ruin the entire steps. Mind occupies a lot of concentration when you are solving a math problem** **and that time you need to be still and full of patience. Losing patience will divert your mind from one place to another and then it will become harder to find the answer even if you are close to it.

So, whenever you decide that you are going to get through it no matter what, do not lose your confidence. Slowly, solve each step, think deeply about the next step, and then write it down, and then you will see how easily you will find the solution.

### 4. Anxiety for Math

If you are stressing out thinking about why I am unable to understand math then the fear of anxiety can be the one reason. As mentioned above, solving math equations is easy but first, you need to be confident inside your head that you will reach the answer.

In tuition classes or schools, teachers sometimes scold students when they are not able to find the correct answer and this drops a seed of anxiety in their minds which remains as an unwanted guest forever.

Overcoming this anxiety is really necessary if you want to become an expert in the math subject. So take small small steps and get confident gradually with some help.

### 5. Repetition of Same Mistakes

The same mistake multiple times can lead to wrong answers. Make sure that you are trying different problems with the same pattern but you are not making the same mistakes again. You should be able to identify where you are going wrong and then you can correct those errors.

Once you identified your mistakes, you can start to the harder level of problems and then practice them with the same approach of identifying and solving those questions with fewer chances of mistakes.

### 6. Lack of Interest

If you really want to become a mathematics expert in the future or just want to **improve your grades** then please just stop thinking that maths is hard and it’s the hardest thing to do in your academics.

Generally, it’s all about developing interest and that’s the main reason why we have also launched “**Math Clicker**” so that users can get to know about these mathematical concepts while playing games as well as having fun. Once the interest is developed, you can start working on your weaknesses and strengthen them.

### 7. No Practice

I am pretty sure that you have heard of a saying that goes like “**Practice Makes Perfect**” and it’s completely valid in all types of fields we all know. Daily practicing anything makes us feel like a regular task and we are at more ease while doing it.

To become a player in the subject, consider math as a game and you are the ruler, this way you will be more engaged and more likely to solve the problems easily. Whatever you study in the subject, do a daily practice for at least 1 hour so that you don’t forget the concept.

In conclusion, Nothing in life is impossible if you have a positive mindset. And math is easy, you can do it. Just keep calm and find the X. A good practice is all you need and it will be set. Stay tuned with us to know more about how you and this subject can become friends. Till then keep practicing and keep studying. All the best!
