I enjoyed it somewhat. Not sure why. I guess figuring out solutions to problems, and I seemed to be fairly good in most areas of maths (though some stuff like simultaneous equations were no hope areas).

I used to enjoy mathematics when I was younger. But now that I'm in college, it's very difficult and I'm finding it very hard to understand. That's why I hate mathematics now.

Yeah,many students chose to major with a hope of becoming a mathematician,but they found it would be impossible for them to take maths as their career of lifetime after 4 years'study in the department of mathematics.

I had a really bad math teacher for Algebra in eighth grade who really made me learn to hate math. He would walk around telling us how stupid girls were and that we needed to practice our waitressing skills if we got problems wrong. I dreaded walking into his classrooom.

I have never liked Math much myself. I know that we need it as far as addition and subtraction. There is some math I don't understand though.Like physics and algerbra. I don't see the reason why we need either one of these. Unless you are going to be a scientist maybe.

I really hated it so much when I was in high school. Because I didn't think it really needed in our practical life. But now I've changed my mind. Sometimes mathematics is quite useful in some way.

I find it fun because it is challenging. I find it really useful in many ways. Maybe most don't see their overall improvements because of Mathematics because they only look at the direct uses. I won't forget what my Geometry teacher said, "You might take courses not related to geometry, but don't mark it as a waste of time. Do not deny that you improved your logics and your ability to link things here. It may help you directly to the least, but I'm sure it will help you as a whole."

I enjoy math. I've always been good at it, and as a technology student, I use it a lot. I'm always surprised at how difficult many students find math, and people often ask me to solve math problems that they find difficult, like calculating gas-mileage, or percentages when things are on sale. As a college student, and a middle-school tutor, I've taught the same math to both 11 year olds and 20 year olds. It seems like some people just can't understand more math after a certain point.

I am in college, and still love Maths. It had got a bit tough, but its still great. I like it for new problems and take it as challenges.

I didn't like math when I was a student because I skipped many math classes as I was often sick and had to stay in hospital when I was at the primary school. As a reault, I lost interest in math for the missing of those classes. My math teacher never helped me to make up for the lost lessons and because of these two major reasons, I didn't have a solid foundation in math. I don't like math at all and hate to deal with anything concerned with math. I don't have a math head. lol
