My passion for mathematics started as a young girl in China when I used to hide in the bathroom at night to solve mathematical questions by torchlight. I have a naturally inquisitive mind and the enjoyment of numerical investigation gives me the motivation to learn more...
For centuries Mathematics and Statistics have been vital in all walks of life, whether it’s in medicine; calculating the probability of death due to smoking or today in calculating pension payments...
Maths is a subject like no other; its complexity makes it a challenging and often frustrating area of study, however the logic behind every problem leaves a feeling of certainty about it. My devotion to the subject has grown exponentially, especially in recent years...
My aptitude towards mathematics aroused because of its simplicity, that as long as you follow the right steps in a systematic order, you will reach the correct answer. At the same time, the challenge which it provides, with its complex yet logical questions, makes it highly addictive for me...
Catering for the future is one of the most beneficial practises of everyday life, and without foreseeing what liabilities may lay ahead, it is difficult to propose a plan of action in the event of such circumstances...
From a very young age, solving problems and identifying patterns has been something I have enjoyed. As a result of this, maths has become my favourite subject at school. Mathematics requires one to work towards a definite answer, particularly in challenging problems, which I find exciting...
"It has become a very strange and perhaps frightening subject from the ordinary point of view,but anyone who penetrates into it will find a veritable fairyland"( Kasner E and Newman J).This saying is perhaps the most fitted to describe my enthusiasm for Maths...
Passion is the drive that keeps me going. My inclination towards Mathematics has drawn me to pursue a degree in Actuarial Science. The ability to apply mathematics and statistics in my working life in the future would allow me to continuously engage in situations requiring analytical and problem-solving skills...
“If people don’t believe that Mathematics is simple, it’s only because they don’t realize how complicated life is.”J.L Neumann. This saying perhaps makes more sense to me than to anyone else and is most suited to describe my zeal for Mathematics...
Mathematics is not just a mere subject but a universal language. Its plethora of Greek symbols interlaced with numbers makes it seem like a clandestine code, which has to be deciphered. This aside, I believe the real magic of Mathematics lies not with its method of execution, but its definite solutions founded on irrefutable proofs, not ignoring the seemingly endless array of applications...
From a young age, it was always expected that I would follow the path of my parents and become a doctor. However, my love for Mathematics has overcome this expectation and encouraged me to pursue a field far from the lines of medicine – Actuarial Science...
A risk can be defined as an action taken despite uncertainty. I believe there is an element of uncertainty in every decision we make. From decisions as trivial as having tea or coffee in the morning to those as important as deciding what course to study at university...
