Is it important to have a good command on Geometry to pursue a good career in rocket sciences?
I am in class 9th ICSE board and I want to pursue rocket science as a career at the research level. My maths is so weak.
Can you tell me ways to improve my maths from the basics?
Experts: do guide.

Fundamentals in all branches of mathematics is required to be clear since primary level for being able to get admission and clearing the higher courses in the field of rocket science. Therefore it is important that to begin with arithmetic is properly understood by the students followed by algebra, calculus, trigonometry, sets and functions, coordinate geometry, statistics and probability, vectors and three-dimensional geometry etc.

In a nutshell, the total syllabus of the classes beginning class I to class XII should be crystal clear. All multiplication tables which are required to be learned at primary level should be memorized.

The author can do it by working hard and by starting learning mathematics since beginning. However, in case, due to any unavoidable reason, he is not able to learn mathematics fully, then he may consider some other career option.

Try, Try till you get success. Never give up attitude has been a good habit to improve Maths at the basic level. Try in the early mornings.
Try one problem with the help of what is being taught in the class, until you are able to solve it by yourself. Take one chapter and try to solve all the problems. Try the same problem in the different ways, alternative ways of solutions are also possible ways of thinking of the brain.
Good command over the Geometry is required to achieve a career in Rocket Science. Apart from Geometry, Statics, Problems with distance calculations, have to clear. These calculations are for calculating the mass, weight. Mathematics is important for joining Engineering. Engineering is important for rocket science. Passing throughout in the merit of the school days may add a basic interest for the ambition of rocket science. Interest in science and physics is also an added advantage. Geography - gives the knowledge about the map and locations. At the school level if you are good
with the languages like English, Tamil, Hindi and others, it would be an added advantage.

Methods to make yourself confidet in Maths are solving Mathematics puzzles, Cube playing in the leisure times. Initially it takes time to solve the first few problems. Once
you get interested try and solve your previous year's books. Solving within the time constraint is also a way to improve your maths and brain. Improve statement problems with English languages.

There are books in basic geometry available in the landmark bookshop. Know to use the compass and divider.

Rocket science topic requires heavy understanding of mathematics and physics. Considering a lot part of it involves physics, you'd definitely benefit from learning math. Because almost every branch of physics has maths in it. And you'd need to be good at both algebra and geometry. The geometry later gets included into the physics under topics such as motion, gravity and few other topics. This can be really in depth topic. And involves a large part of advanced mathematics. So you can guess that maths and physics are backbone of the rocket science degree.
