I don't like that I have a hard time learning it. I used to cry while my mother would force me to practice multiplication (and I did so once in class, which was super embarrassing). It made me feel like an idiot; I even had to take a remedial, after school course. However, when I finally figured a concept out, I'd love it. The linear, systematic nature of handling equations was relaxing and incredibly satisfying.

I loved math almost at first sight. I remember the classes in kindergarden when we learned counting. I actually did way ahead in the exercise book, even when my teacher told me not to. From kindergarden to primary school, middle, high school then now undergrad, my passion for math has never reduced.

I find it very exasperating. I am pretty darn good at some math (stats) but struggle mightily with others (calculus, especially integration and it's not for lack of trying).

Multiple reasons that add up.

ReplyDeleteBecause if you get it you just get it and probably won't have to study as much as in other courses where you memorize shit.

ReplyDeleteBecause I'm a mathochist.

ReplyDeleteI don't understand how you can be good at stats without being good at calculus. Unless you haven't taken upper year stats yet.

DeleteI find it sexually satisfying.
