    Even when I study so hard

    and when I think I understand something, it turns out the way I understood was wrong. I can't be good at it, even when I was younger. I hate math because every time I have a test, I feel sick and every time I see math it makes me feel terrible. I don't think, I can ever get rid...

    So I am sitting in math class today

    and I look at the board and I understand none of it. I raise my hand and ask for help and she explains it to me and when she is done I have to ask her again to explain it. And then she gives me the dirtiest look I have ever seen and she tells me to figure it out myself. So I say...

    Math is what I'm worst at

    and it's my least fave subject. When I was in third grade we had a addition test and I like had to count. It took each of them one min at least. There were 30 Qs. But look! I got a 78% :/

    I remember my classmate in grade school.

    He was called by my teacher in front to answer a math problem. He got up and suddenly fainted. He was brought to the clinic only to know that he was just faking it because he does not know the answer to the math problem. He was really a good actor though. :))

    I'm not "horrible" at math .

    .. It just falls toward the bottom of my list of concepts I enjoy ;) I've studied and passed advanced math classes ... Not much of it stuck to me. I'm not anti-math in education ... It teaches your brain to solve complex problems (math and non math related). Do I resist math and...

    Today, 2/24/15. I took a math test.

    For me, it was really hard. In some of the math problems it was really easy, but the rest were really hard and could not think about how to solve them, so I knew I had to guess at the point where I can't solve them. My 6th grade teacher once told me that if I can't solve a...
