How Further Maths Furthered People’s Destiny

.
*1*. Remember Further Maths (aka _Additional Mathematics_) ???
They warned you that it’d be tough so you committed to listening attentively from the very beginning…
.
*2*. …things started very well. 2a+8a = 10a. Easy beans. You are happy. This thing is not so hard. You are following it. Very happy.
.
*3*. Then slowly, you don’t see any number again, just letters fighting Jackie Chan on the board; Sin 0/Cos 0 = A/Bx find *x*…. ahan. You vexed!
.
*4*. You went back to your note, & started thinking, “at what point did I miss it? Why did the teacher eliminate numbers? Why is *”x”* important?”
.
*5*. You say ok, may be it is just this part. Then the teacher goes, find *x* if α%*¤< + & @%β^ = &^^# *x*.
You ask the teacher, _”please give us a clue Sir”_
.
*6*. In your head, you are thinking, “how can you tell me to find *x* when I can’t even find all the things surrounding *x*?”
.
*7*. At that point, you start to dream about your blessed and assured *”F”* in WAEC. To avoid it, you look for a friend to explain better to you.
.
*8*. This time, you didn’t even look for the girl you were tripping for to come teach you because this time…u really want to learn
.
*9*. You remember your parents, the school fees and the “F” you were already dreaming about. You didn’t fool yourself. You looked for your guy.
.
*10*. You even bought that expensive Further Maths text book. That one where after page one, everything else is written in tongues.
.
*11*. You bought rechargeable lamp. Called your mum to bring more provisions because “I now read at night and I get hungry”
.
*12*. You mean business. You want to know how ordinary numbers suddenly changed to Chinese language before your eyes.
.
*13*. You friend is even kind. He started with BODMAS. He makes you understand nothing in Further Maths is beyond BODMAS. You are happy. Easy.
.
*14*. After two hours of learning, you got everything. Your friend should be a teacher you thought. He teaches better. Wow! You feel really good!
.
*15*. Back in the hostel alone, you picked two easy “problems,” did wuru wuru to the answer. You checked the back for answer. Yay! You gorrit!
.
*16*. Back in class, the teacher is not even writing letters that you know again, he has gone Greek on you. Tetha, Beta, Alpha…argh!
.
*17*. As if that wasn’t evil enough, he combines them, “tan _tetha_” “cos _tetha_” and he draws one snake that look like _*S*_ like this… habaaaaa, they are even involving names of God, tan_Chi, alpha, sin oghene..hmmmm…!!!
.
*18*. That was the point the *”F”* in your dream became flesh and formed tears on your face. You must call mummy. You know that.
.
*19*. Then something in you said, don’t call her. She will think you are an _*Olodo*_ if you don’t do “Science class”. So you didn’t bother.
.
*20*. You simply just gave yourself brain. Ran faster than _light_ to see what was happening in *Art Class*
.
*21*. They were teaching them _”the Macpherson constitution”_ and what made the _”Clifford constitution”_ different.
.
*22*. Then they spoke about the _”Motion for Independence”_ and the _”1979 constitution.”_ You felt at home.
.
*23*. Next day, you take the Further Maths text books and all the big books like it, over to CMS. *Sell them all !!!*
LOLzzz !
.
*24*. This is a true life story of real people who were really brilliant but had no business in “Science Class” but *”had”* to be there… just to form _Alagbará_
.
*25*. Society insists; smart people are in Science Class. The others join Art Class. This is tragic and really this ought to stop soon!
.
*26*. There are no dumb people. You are smart at what you thrive at and most of us thrive at something…
.
*27*. That I can’t thrive at what you thrive at doesn’t make me dumb. Usain Bolt will outrun LeBron James on the track. But in B’Ball
? ..James wins !
.
*28*. To this day, some of you still judge yourself based on what your friends are achieving. Please, judge yourself against yourself alone!
.
*30*. Don’t make your life like football leagues where you check on the results of others to feel better
