This math homework hoping that by solving this problem

By: saddam


My teacher provided us this math homework hoping that by solving this problem will help us in appreciating the greatness of mathematics:

A clown fish named Nemo met a school of fish and said: “hello there a hundred fishes!” The leader of the group answered: “If you count us, we can not reach to a hundred. However, if there were as many of us and there are as many more and half many more and quarter as many more and you, Nemo, also swam with us, then there will be a hundred of us.”

If you are asked how many fish are there in that school of fish, will you be able to correctly answer the question? Well, if you are going to ask me, I would rather read a book than solve this problem.

It is always about math. Every time I hear that word, it really gives me the chill. I mean, ever since I was a kid, I have a problem with solving word problems. When our math teacher starts writing something on the board, I end up staring at it confused and perplexed. My friends then immediately scribble for answers while I just wait for them to give me their answers.

I am not really sure where I got this fear of math, but I think it is partially due to the environment that I am living in. My parents’ work did not really have to do much with numbers. My mother is a sales representative while my father works in an advertising company as a photographer. Perhaps, the only mathematics that my mom had ever to perform was adding the sales while my father simply counts the number of pictures taken. And that’s all about it, nothing else. Thus, developing in such an environment where mathematics is not really discussed, my development and ability to solve mathematical problems were not really developed, hence, my constant fear of math.

Even when it is about math homework, I can not really rely for help from my parents especially if it comes to problems involving some higher math topics, including integral calculus. I am not saying that they do not know mathematics it is just that they have not used it that much all this time. Hence, I have to rely from other resources such as tutors, friends, classmates, and the good old library to get that math homework help I need.

Before, the appropriate resources was tedious and sometimes expensive, especially if we are to consider hiring somebody to privately mentor us. However, with the information and possiblities offered by the internet, getting math homework help is no longer an issue.

A big percentage of math homework websites offer a variety of articles and tutorials which will really assist a struggling student in catching up with mathematical challenges. Some of the websites even offer live online tutorial, but at a certain fee. Just think of them as your virtual tutors. With the internet at hand, you really have countless possibilities. You might not be able to find appropriate help from your parents but you will certainly get some from the internet. And by the way, the solution for the fish problem is thirty six. Obviously, I found the solution on the World Wide Web.
