Mathematics is more of an attitude rather than fear phobia as most students would like us to believe. It’s one of the poorly performed subjects in KCSE and KCPE exams despite enjoying the largest number of lessons in a week compared to other subjects of the same league. Eight lessons a week is pretty much if you want to prove your talents in mathematics. The problem in math performance mostly is to blame to the student and to some extent company and some shrewd teachers. Mathematics teachers should be inspiring and more enterprising to sell the idea of mathematics to the students; they should encourage students to use mathematics as a weapon of performing better in other science subjects just as students themselves would encourage each other. The business of mathematics is wide and universal, in this article I will look forward to advice students on how to pursue mathematics in order to eliminate poor grades and top with pride. Now follow these steps keenly to develop a mathematics culture. ## Tips## 1. Eliminate Bad Math Attitude/ Love Mathematics
