why do girls hate math?

in ancient times girls dropped their math subjects because they think it was only a waste of time. they parents didn't force them to study it because they belive that it cant help them do the household chores.is it right to belive in that manner?

What? where do you get your information from? I don't know what you mean by ancient times, but up until a couple centuries ago, women were not supposed to go to school in most places in the world. They didn't "drop" their math classes, they never were enrolled for any. You are right in the fact that what women learned wasinstructions from their mother on household tasks. However, I don't think this is the reason women "hate math." In fact a lot of women don't hate math, so I think that is kind of a broad statement that doesn't really apply. (some men do hate math too) I am a girl and when I was younger I used to love math. My love abruptly ended when I took trigonometry, but that is another story. I think that it has to do with the brain. The left side of the brain has to do with logic and language. Perhaps women prefer to focus this brain power on personal communication than solving math problems. I don't know, but I think that you can't just say that all girls hate math.
