I did not try to improve my score or my abilities in these two fields at all as I felt they were not as important as reading and writing skills I was keen to learn in the course. The difficulties I faced in negative numbers were the inability to figure them out. I got a NP score in it. In Ratio, rounding and checking calculations too I got a TC. I don’t understand why I get so bothered about rations and fractions when I am good at basic multiplication and division?
But I found out a way with the help of my professors who told me not to use any technology for calculations as practice to develop these skills. I am so happy to inform that I could do all my routine accounts without the help of Reflective Account Calculator.
These are the effects of too much dependence on modern technology I realized.
I have discouraged myself from using it until very necessary ever since then. I did not attempt to do the assignments or tests in fractions, decimals, money, measurements, conversions, volumes, geometry, two dimensional and three dimensional figures, diagrammes, presentation of data, graphs, and topics in statistics like mean, median, range and probability. The list of NA s is very long as I just did not make an effort to do it. Why? The reason is psychological and not any other.
I have a mind block about numbers, calculations and their usage so I tend to avoid these assignments is my personal observation during the course. I made no attempts to improve my self in these topics. I wish they can be deleted from the syllabus or made optional for students. I still got 86.11 % in this subject so I am very proud about it. It has increased my self esteem in public and in my family too. I got 93.75% in my English assignments.
I got a NP in commas and sentences. So I overcame my low performance by not using the spell check and grammar check on my computer. Instead of that I wrote one short paragraph every evening and got it corrected by my guide to help me with my corrections. I rewrote it so there were no mistakes in my comma usage. I have kept a record of each day. This was a laborious process but it was very effective for my improvement I feel.
I did not attempt to complete my assignments in Apostrophes, inverted commas, Colons, semi colons, Active Passive voice, pronouns, locating information, use appropriate language, proof reading, facts, bias, opinions and yet I earned a score of 93.75% which goes to prove that I am proficient to carry on my daily business in English Reflective Account Communication as usual.
