The question is, are they actually courses one can study without mathematics in higher institution?
Well, as you may want to know mathematics is important and a must offer subject while in college. I am so supprised to also see the engineering students ask me if it’s possible they skip mathematics, but that isn’t possible in their case.
Although, they’re science courses you can enrol for in the University that doesn’t require mathematics, Now I’ll like to generalize to other departmental sphere(Art and Commercial departments).

Well I must tell you what mathematics is, I’ll happily tell you mathematics is not all about arriving at answers, it’s about processes.
mathematics is not about answers, it’s about processes.
Over the years, they’ve been many misconceptions about mathematics, I’ll go through some quickly.
Misconceptions About Mathematics.
1. Mathematics is hard and tough.
It’s a very big lie, probably the person teaching you is difficult to understand. I tell you mathematics is one of the most beautiful and simple thing you could ever imagine, it is used everywhere, it is seen everywhere.
English is hard, Biology is harder, Commerce is tough but mathematics is simple. It’s about process and not answer.
2. High Grade means you know mathematics?
No way, getting high grades only means you study hard. Understanding mathematics is an art of its self, the more you use a particular theorem to positively change your life, the more you’ll know more and enjoy mathematics.
3. Mathematics is Boring!
Mathematics is not just a subject as said earlier. It’s an art of itself.
The person teaching you hasn’t done his job well for you to think mathematics is boring.
In a recap It’s a process and not answer.
Before you start mathematics you should ask yourself.
- What am I given?
- What exactly am I expected to do?
- How do I go about it?
This is how I personally deal with mathematics.
