How many teachers know where all the Calculus can be applied?
How many teachers explains to their students as why the English and the language is given as a subject?
All such things looks very basic, but then unless it is taught properly the student will certainly not understand the concepts.
Again for example, till 8th or so they study all subject and from the next level they choose ...more
