This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Dont worry. At your age it's common

AVN have you read How To Solve It by George Polya? -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HowtoSolve_It - That might be helpful to you.

I would endorse reading that book. It's on my shelf within about three feet of me now. Mind you, it's been about three decades since I looked at it. Anything about heuristics is a good idea for people who want to do mathematics or any other science.

I didn't begin to develop much of an aptitude for mathematics until I was your age or a little bit older. I am in my sixties now and I find that many things are easier now that I can afford to be more patient with myself. This might work for you too.

Meanwhile, just try the problems. Don't worry if you can't do them. Even just by trying them you will find you are learning something. It's a kind of magic, I think. You can always go back again and again.

could you suggest some books which will help me enhance my aptitude i am currently in class 10th

You dont need any books to enhance your aptitude skills. Daily life problems are more than enough.

You need to think about various approaches to problems and just try to solve more and more problems.

keep on solving more and more questions, without looking for solutions.(you can do that in many ways like copy down the problem and do later on so that you are not tempted to look for solutions in the adjacent tab before even solving the problem)
