IITJEE – 2009, Discussion of 3HRT – 5, Mathematics

In this blog I will be discussing questions from 3HRT-5 (3 hour test number 5). I am solving some questions from the paper. These questions were asked after the class by some students. If you want me to discuss more questions from this test, please write question number in the comment. Also mention whether you want just a written solution or audio-video solution.

Question 31

Hard Work-: A vector quantity

First thing that comes to my mind when i think about preparing for IIT through Vidyamandir Classes is that -: "Hard work is a vector quantity." What i mean by this is that not only magnitude of hard work is important but also its direction. If I only put the magnitude to a vector and not the direction then the vector becomes meaningless and same is the case with hard work. It is of no use if you just keep on slogging and working hard if you are not putting your efforts in the right direction and this is precisely what vidyamandir does. It not only makes a student to go in the right direction but also stop the ones who are going in the wrong direction.

Now when i look back at these two years i can say that it has been quiet a wonderful journey..I have grown quiet a lot in terms of maturity, coolness of mind and way to handle things..I have changed and changed for better. I can now tackle tough things without panicking which i completely lacked two years back, i have more self-belief and self-confidence in me than i had two years back. So all in all i have not only made professional progress but also personal progress.

IITJEE Simplified : Study Tip 3 – What is the best way to study Mathematics?

Once open a time a lady wanted to hire a cook for her restaurant. She interviewed many candidates and finally she selected the one who impressed her in the interview. Lady was very impressed with his knowledge of cooking. He was like a cooking encyclopedia.

On his first day of the job, lady thought of taking his trial. She asked him to cook "Kadai Chicken ". She started eagerly waiting for the food. Food was served and she had her first bite. It was pathetic in taste. She could not sallow even a single bit of it. Lady was shocked and asked man "It is so horrible in taste. Are you sure you can cook food" Man replied, "Madam, sorry for the food. Actually I have never done cooking before. I just had taken lessons on cooking from experts and during my training classes, I saw instructor cooking. Also I have read and learnt all the recipes of making excellent food."

Moral of the story is, there is difference in knowing how to do things and actually being able to do things. By merely just knowing how to do things does not make you expert on actually doing it yourself.

Learning Mathematic is like learning art of solving problems (actually doing) and not just knowing formulae and concepts (acquiring knowledge). So if you want to improve your mathematics, you need to focus on more and more problem solving instead of just reading theory, formulae and solution .

Following are some instructions/tips that would definitely help you learn mathematics better:
