# Maths ## How to Learn Maths?

Maths is a fun subject. But learning Maths has never been easy. At BYJU’S, you can create such a strong foundation in this subject, with the help of which any mathematical problems would seem to be a cakewalk to you. Getting a good grip in Math fundamentals, through understanding and practice, will tend to develop your brain in a logical way and help you to grasp the concepts in all other subjects with greater speed and efficiency.

We are providing learning materials for students of Class 6 to 12 based on the syllabus. In these classes, students set their foot into the world of all the important theories in Maths, like whole numbers, basic geometry, integers, decimals, algebra, ratio and proportion, etc. Since kids are more receptive to learning, when it is associated more with play than with work, hence it is a good idea for parents to expose kids to math in fun ways. We provide lessons for students till class 12, where they study the most complex topics like 3-D geometry, vector algebra, differential equations, matrices, etc. A few of the links of important topics have been shared here for your convenience.

With the help of animations and innovative ways of teaching by our experts, the ideas and concepts are sure to stay etched in your minds forever.  The purpose is to make math fun and help kids grow to understand that math is fun. Instead of being afraid, the kids will then be excited about the subject for the rest of their educational journey. You can engage yourself with interactive video sessions, regular tests prepared by our experts and do continuous analysis based on your performance.

The interactive video lessons on BYJU’S learning app will give you very elaborate and detailed explanations of the various ideas in Maths.

## Basic Maths

The basics of Maths deals with simple arithmetic operations, which are:

• Subtraction (-)
• Multiplication (x)
• Division (÷)

To become an expert in these basic concepts, students need to practise questions and solve worksheets based on them. There will few more basics such as multiples, factors, HCF and LCM, which will be introduced to the students in their secondary classes.

Multiplication tables are also one of the fundamentals of Maths. Students will have to learn tables from 1 to 10 in their primary school to solve multiplication problems.

### Why do we learn Maths?

Maths is the foundation of all subjects and helps to improve brainpower. Our universe is made up of numbers. Maths has been at the centre of science, data handling, engineering, technology, space and research, and so on. Mathematics is important in everyday life. As a result, learning maths is required in order to observe and interpret the universe.

### Why is Maths so important?

Mathematics provides structure to our life and reduces ambiguity. Learning Mathematics improves our reasoning power, creativity, abstract or spatial thinking, critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, and even effective communication skills.

### What are the different branches of maths?

The major branches of maths are:

• Number system and basic Arithmetic
• Algebra
• Trigonometry
• Geometry and Cartesian Geometry
• Calculus- Differential and Integral
• Matrix Algebra
• Probability and Statistics

### What are the fundamentals of Maths?

Fundamentals of Maths covers basic arithmetic operations or calculations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, which are taught to us in primary classes. Going forward, in higher classes, students will learn basic concepts like algebra, geometry, factors, ratios, etc.

### What are the basics of Geometry?

In geometry, we basically learn about different shapes and sizes in two-dimension and three-dimension. But we begin with point, lines and angles which are base of geometry.
Circle, Square, Rectangle, Parallelogram, Rhombus, Kite, etc. are two-dimensional shapes.
Cube, Cuboid, Sphere, Cylinder, Cone are the three-dimensional shapes.

### What are the basic arithmetic operations?

The four basic maths operations are:
