Hello to all my CISM students! How are you all doing? It’s been a while but here you go again, soon to undergo the processes of testing! Most of you wouldn’t want to be examined in Mathematics because you fear of failing and getting a horrible grade at the end of the quarter. Such is the most popular reason. However, you shouldn’t be! Never fear math exams. And why is that so? Two reasons. First, doing your Math exam is just like traveling to some place new. For you not to get lost, you must follow directions carefully. You’ll get there safely if you did. The scenario in math class parallel to that of traveling is: you are taught instructions and techniques to solve problems easily. You just have to learn how to use them wisely. Seriously, if applicable on the situation, you can even do shortcuts if you wanted to! Second, when you are tested, you can measure how far you’ve learned things in Math! You’ll know the exact numbers of your mathematical wits from 1-60! If there’s no examination, then, there’s no application of learning. Attending classes for the sake of just… going to school is a sad waste of time and tuition fee! Realize this. But beyond everything, with all my heart, dear students, I know you can pass my test because I am sure… you didn’t sleep in my class! More Math power to all of you!
