This list is a continuation of my first post, if you haven’t read it then I suggest you do. In my previous post, I wrote out 10 of my favorite math quotes, and for this post, I listed my next 10 favorites.
Math can be hard but at the same time it can be easy. Sometimes, it depends on how motivated your learners are in studying the various formulas or whatnot of the subject ‘mathematics.’
Like i mentioned on my previous post, I loved math when I was a kid. But, as I grew up, it became more of a task that I needed to do. And if that’s case, then studying math will be difficult.
Teaching these quotes to your students will give them hope and teach them that in learning this subject called math can also be fun and exciting. It will give them a sense of not being alone, that someone just like them came before this difficult problem but was able to solve it and succeed.
Here is my next 10 list of favorite math quotes:
- “Just because we can’t find a solution it doesn’t mean that there isn’t one.” – Andrew Wiles
- “There should be no such thing as boring mathematics.” – Edsger Dijkstra
- “Mathematics is the gate and key to science.” – Roger Bacon
- “It is clear that the chief end of mathematical study must be to make the students think.” – John Wesley Young
- “Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding.” – William Paul Thurston
- “One of the endlessly alluring aspects of mathematics is that its thorniest paradoxes have a way of blooming into beautiful theories.” – Philip J Davi
- “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” – Dr. Seuss
- “Go down deep enough into anything and you will find mathematics.” – Dean Schlicter
- “Mathematics is a language.” – Josiah Willard Gibbs
- “Mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” – Albert Einstein
In learning math, it requires much patience. Once your students run out of it, then it’s going to get hard for them to move to the next lessons, specially since math is designed to be learned in a step-by-step process. Once you missed a step then everything else may not work out.
I hope that this quotes will help your students in their study life. As a bonus, here’s another five math quotes:
- “Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton asked why.” – Bernard Baruch
- “Nature is written in mathematical language.” – Galileo Galilei
- “Mathematics is the most beautiful and most powerful creation of the human spirit.” – Stefan Banach
- “If you stop at general math, then you will only make general money.” – Snoop Dogg
- “It’s fine to work on any problem, so long as it generates interesting mathematics along the way – even if you don’t solve it at the end of the day.” – Andrew Wiles
