Every student I think is afraid in MATH subject. They always found it very difficult to answer and solve. And even myself as a student having a hard time also in answering problems in mathematics, that's why I always have almost failing grade. You? did you find MATH also as a math subject? or you love it compared to other subject? please voice out your answer? My pleasure....

Hi,there! Well,for me,not really.From primary school to high school,I would say my maths was quite good among my classmates.I lost about 17 points when I had the college entrance exam.And I usually was on the top list.Yet,if it's some really hard problems,I may find myself uncapable of solving them.So I don't hate it or love it.Just okay with it. Have a nice day!

What an inspiring comment sunnycool. But I doubt if that will also happen to me, because to conquer my weakness I must think positive, think that it's so easy. You think it's a good idea? or I just tolerate myself to rely on what others say?

To each its own. I actually enjoyed math until I got to trig in college. That was just last semester. I thought I was really good at math, but trigonomentry was really hard for me, so in taking that class it did ruin my love for math lol.

In my school while i was studying +1 and +2, i thought to take maths group but i took computer science group. Thank got i didn't take maths, i know maths but i don't like it that much as too many formulas and confusion in it. Accounts also will be some what same as maths, both are headache, if theory means no problem we can write anything related to it and easily pass and get good marks.

You hit me there, kiddo. I'm one of those people who got tired of trying how to be good in MATH. I envy and admire as well those people good in that subject. I don't know, why. But when someone talks about subjects in school, you're right, there are lots of students who are scared of that subject. Well, for me, it's really must be a gift being good in MATH. Though when I analyze it, it only needs good comprehension skill, but still, I can't get it. It is very different in any subject, very conflicated for me that makes me sick. Basic is not a problem, but when it comes to higher MATH, wheeww. I will just try to excell into something which I'm good, that's better I think. Hope you can still have time to get good in that, maybe you're still young to for that, unlike me, it's too late for my age. Good luck and happy mylotting.

Actually for me, Math was one of those subjects that could come easy, but it also could be something that was perhaps a rather hectic bit of torture. It all had to do with the teacher who was teaching the subject. If I had a good teacher for math, then I was able to understand it rather well and do good. However, there were times where, I don't want to say the teacher was bad, but explaining a complex and delicate subject was far from a strong point. I think Math is something that for many, if it is explained well enough, then they will survive it. Perhaps not excel in it. However lack of explanation leads to lack of understanding and that could in fact be a problem. However, I will concede the point that there is sometimes no amount of explanation that can allow us to pierce the mysterious veil that often surrounds the subject of math. So for me, there are times where I did well, but there are other times where I barely survived with a pass.

Helllo megamatt, a great job for you. And i should adore you for that. Thus, I should not feel worry for I know that there are also people who is fighting for these hard subject.

In my opinion it is one of the hardest subject I ever encountered while I was in College. Math in grade school and high school is a lot easier. However, for me the hardest subject is still Physics. I hate it so much... lolz...

I have having a maths paper in 2 days time. not really maths, more of a calculus course. For me, although maths is indeed quite tough, i quite like this subject. whenever i complete a touch question, i get a sense of satisfaction. Furthermore, maths is the only subject where full marks is easily attainable because the answers are all in numbers unlike english where there will be grammar mistakes and all. for math, the chances of getting full marks is higher. Having said that, i do find math questions difficult too. we have to remember all the steps and not make any careless mistake. this is one problem that i face regularly. i am quite rough with my workings and many a time make stupid mistake. I am in fact thinking of furthering my studies on some maths course. what are your views?

For me Math is a favorite subject I regularly spent 3-4 hrs solving mathematics problems than other subjects and in my class I occupied the second position scoring marks but in other subject I was not so good just for example physics or biology I am not so good as maths........

I think, no subject is hard if we start taking interest in this.. thats why, Maths is also not a difficult subject, just need of practice is there. Always remember that practice makes man perfect.......

I may be strange, but how I did in math always depended on what my teacher was like. If I had a mean teacher, I did bad in math. If I had a teacher who cared, I did ok. It was never especially easy for me, but some areas of math are actually fun! I like it best when you use it in "real world" applications rather than just theory. I had trouble with word problems until I started studying chemistry. Then I could see where math came in handy. If you use math for a purpose, it is easy, but if it is just to pass a class it is really hard.

Not for me though. I never saw math as a hard subject, but I saw it as a fun subject. I never was afraid to learn math. I may not be smart nor get the highest grade from my batch, but I have always enjoyed learning it. It was challenging though but it sure was fun. :)
