Here are some recent exam questions that somebody shared here on the blog. As usual, my part 1 sample answers are short, direct and simple.
1) At what age did you start studying mathematics?
I can't exactly remember, but it was probably in my first year at primary school when I was 5 years old. I probably learnt simple addition at that age.
2) Do you like mathematics? Why / why not?
I don't dislike maths, but I wouldn't say that I've ever really liked the subject either. I'm happy to do simple calculations, but my brain can't cope with the complex stuff!
3) Is it necessary for everyone to learn mathematics?
Yes, I think it is. We all need a basic grounding in maths so that we can do daily tasks, like managing our money, working out bills, and so on.
4) Do you prefer to use a calculator when doing mathematics?
It depends. I quite like exercising my brain with anything that's easy enough, but I use the calculator on my phone for anything tricky.
