The stronger and more numerous our representations, the more we can draw on them to connect ideas, develop intuitions and solve problems.
You weren’t bad at maths — you just weren’t looking at it the right way

Great point Junaid Mubeen!

I think of it as playing with Lego. You have a rough idea about what you want to build, then you break the idea down and try it out and represent the same in multiple ways. Ofcourse during the process, you are constantly searching the mental repository of the experiences, ideas and information you’ve been exposed too. In a way, with more representations, your own mental diet is becoming more refined.
