    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% :/

    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...

    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...

    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...

    My Maths is as if I've learned it yesterday.

    The numbers have made my hands shiver. Till 8th grade I was good at it. Later it was the only subject in which I used to fail. Even the simplest of the questions turn out to be a great problem to me. That's really threatening specially during examinations. My overall scores...

    Most Of My Traumatic Experiences

    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. :))
