      It is important that a student keep up in mathematics. In some subjects, if you have difficulty with one chapter, you get a fresh start with the next one. However, in mathematics, learning is cumulative. Concepts build on one another, and if you fail to learn one concept, you will not understand material that builds on it.

      Good hub, it all adds up. Don't forget that, all subjects, you can learn by heart but only math asks to show your workings. Most other subjects, like language, geography and history, are past or present. Science, with maths, is proressive. We still do not know all the questions, let alone the answers. I think you may enjoy some of my hubs. I'll be looking out for yours, thanks.
