John, Peter and Ava are in the same class. They are close friends but quite different. John enjoys playing baseball and cricket and enjoys spending time in nature. Perhaps he is gifted with the gift of not getting bored when spending time in the sun. He enjoys participating and meeting new people and playing different sports with them. If there was any sports competition in the school, teachers and students expected John to bring victory to the school, and John did the same. On the other hand, Peter is an introverted child. He enjoys doing things that allow him to look inward. Yes, you guessed it right, he likes to draw. He spent hours sketching and painting alone in his room. When he leaves the room, he doesn’t go alone; rather, he has amazing masterpieces that leave everyone stunned. Additionally, he also enjoys swimming, but only when the pool is empty enough to swim and get lost in deep thoughts. On the other hand, Ava is a girl who loves to read. She has good taste in books. Think of a bestseller and you’ll find it kept on her shelf. She is able to read through the longest books in less time than average. Can’t miss, she’s the top scorer at school. She doesn’t study to pass an exam, she studies to get the most out of the concepts and memorize them for lifelong use. All three students we are talking about are very different from each other, however, all three are extremely talented so it would be unfair to compare them to each other and call any one of them better than the rest .

Even though all three of these best friends are very different, they are similar in one way. ALL THREE PEOPLE HATE MATH! Yes, you read it right. All three students were blessed with beautiful minds but they did not understand the complexity of mathematics.

To arouse interest in the subject, the math teacher assigned all the children homework based on interesting math puzzles. However, students also have difficulty solving these math puzzles.
