Math sonnet

If you live your whole life counting
Add and subtract
Multiply and divide
The rest is reasoning.

Everyone has to understand
And learn, the four operations
The rest are deductions.
And the formulas know how to rummage.

Why are so many people afraid
From mathematics wanting to learn
And her say not like?

I think I found the secret
The teacher needs to understand
The reason is in the way of teaching.
