Some people say they don't like Math because it's all about numbers and they find it hard but come to think of it, they're good at money, earning and spending. I know that it is somehow related to math because it adds and subtracts, etc. I started to love math (algebra) when i was in 1st year college and thanks to my professor for making me like it. He looks like a geek but he teach good. Does anyone like math too or not? =D

I love math, I always have loved math, since preschool. Which apparently my mom thought was weird. I told her preschool was boring and I wanted to quit because we didn't do anything except color. Then I'd sit by my oldest sister and try to help her with her math homework when she got home from school.

I love math... but it's not just about the numbers, it's about thinking and problem solving. We are all great problem solvers even if we do not know it. We have to figure out what time to set our alarm in the mornings so we have time to get ready to go to work. We know exactly what our routine demands and how long we need so we are not late. We also have to figure out how long it will take us to get to our destination. Which is the easier,or faster way, even the least expenxive way! How much will it cost to throw a party? We all use some sort of budgeting... at least I don't see too many people taking tons of things back at the store because they don't have enough to pay. Do you have enough gas to get from here to there? Are your lights on? How do you conserve energy? This list could go on all day because we all use math for just about everything!!

Frankly speaking,i hated Math when i was in high school as a student.I thought it was really boring to deal with those meaningless numbers.But , as we know people have diffient interests,some of my classmates were really into those calculation and equations,and i understood that. For now,i still not so much like Math,i think it relate to my personality.

Yes, I love math really. My dad was a math teacher and a very good one. I did not like math until I was maybe a freshman in highschool. I actually got caught cheating. He had a mountain of answer books and so did my aunt who also lived with us. She taught grade school. It wasn't hard to come up with enough correct answers to just get by. Once I got caught, my dad began tutoring me at home. He was very patient and would try a number of various ways for me to grasp the different concepts until I "got it". Gradually I began to like it more and more. Now I love it...most of it anyway. Algebra & problem solving are my favorites.

sorry,I don't really like math.I know that a lot of people like math,but I'm not one of those.though we use math in our daily lives,I'm still not a fan of it.I just don't have the patience in solving math problems,especially trigonometry.I prefer science and english.

No, I don’t like maths, in fact I am very poor in maths. In school, it was the worst subject one just had to do. Nowadays, since I am guiding my son in his studies, I have to go thru the same maths lessons. Worst still, I cant show my poor form to my son and scare him off, so I try my best to put up a brave front.

It's like you're in school again. That's why we should study well so that when we had children, we can teach them what they should learn. =D

I like maths very much. My memory is not good, and maths just need me to memorise formulas and equations. I like solving the maths problems, which make me feel good. Maths is very interesting.

Yes it is very interesting. When we solve problems in math it really give us a relief. It's like we've solved a very difficult problem that only few can. =D

I dont just like math, i love it so much. contrary to many, math, especially algebra, is my fave subjects. I get satisfaction in solving math problems (sounds like a geek, lol). I always excel on it, back in my school years.

I like algebra too but there are other categories of math are just okay for me.

I was always a fan of Math until I took Geometry. I had the worst teacher and she graded the worst so I stopped caring. Ever since then advanced math has been owning me and I hate it now. My favorite subject ended up being lunch because I leaned a little math with the cash register, a little science with the food I was eating, and a little history with the different origins of the food. Haha, I got an A on my lunch exam.

i don't like math, ever since. i hate it. i don't like solving numbers it makes my head aches and confused and it takes, 100 percent of my mind working on it, so it makes me feel tired after solving just one problem.

I not good at Math but I still passed the Math subjects. I hate solving and equations. Calculus and Statistics are the subject I hate it is very hard to memorize the formula and the solution to the equation is very long. It is very hard for me to analyze the problem even the word problem it is difficult for me. I know that math is very important to us in everyday life but I think some math subjects are not useful for us.

I love Math. Well, being an Engineer it does make enormous sense to love Math. But then it is not quite so. For there are many Engineers - Students and Professionals-who would want to and have gone through the Math in their lives as an inevitable cross to bear. IMO, Math is exquisite beauty - truly the Queen of Sciences. It is a language in itself- aprecise one at that. It is the best short-cut available to produce/manufacture a fine, organized mind. The other great Mind Organizer that I have found is The Sanskrit Language- esp. its Grammar.

Well, I use to love math and was actually very good at it until I took Grade 12 finite and Calculs...oh man..That was the end for me. All the permutations and computations and all that other junk just did me in. I am no longer a math lover b/c of the traumatic experience I had with Calculus..I still have nightmares :)

I absolutely love Math. Sometimes it can be really tricky, but when I am able to solve a very difficult problem, I feel good. When I am able to balance equations, I feel good. I always relate Math to real life. It always makes me think that to every problem, there is always a solution. Most of the time, we just have to be very patient with it.

I think I don't like mathematics because I don't learn it well. But math is very interesting if you started to master it.So I am still learning it,because I am hoping that some day I can get really interesting in it. haha~

I could never memorize the basic addition, multliclipaication subtraction and division problems. Still can't and I am going to have to fight tooth and nail to be able to use a calculator for my exams.I hated algebra, it was hard for me to remember the different formulas and methods for each type of equation. In the end I did alright at it for my test because I spent hours making sure I got it stuck in my head.

Dear friend, Even though I am below average in maths I do like maths as it has played an important role in human life. I do respect those great mathematicians too. I just remind of that proverb now that "Those grapes are sour so I do not want them" when the fox find those grapes are not able to get. I am not at all good in maths but I like it.
