I Am Horrible At Math

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,440 People

    Always have been. I hate it.

    It takes me such a long time to get my head around it, and when I'm put on the spot and have to do a sum in my head I go completely blank.

    I wouldn't say I hate math

    because I'm sooo not good at it. :/

    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. :))

    hi my name is Burple

    and I'm bad at Algebra. I'm so bad at algebra that I've taken college algebra 5 times with no luck off ever passing it, thank goodness my degree no longer requires it.

    I Used To Be Good.

    I used to achieve A's for the subject and genuinely enjoyed it, until an incident in 9th grade changed everything. At that time I was going through a very difficult time. I took an overdose and spent a day in the hospital, missing an important math class. After that incident, I...

    I think I can grasp math

    and be good at it because I kind of understand when the teacher gives a discussion, but when it comes to applying it to problems and such, I would then flail at some point of the process. I really like physics actually and there's like, tons of math in there, it keeps me awake...

    I'm no where near being a math person.

    I suck at math. I am really surprised I actually passed my college algebra class. I was so scared that I was going to fail and retake the class but I actually passed the class. I'm way better in English than i am at math

    Math Is My Enemy

    Math has never been my strong suit. I'm much better with words. I like to be creative and words allow me to do that. Math, on the other hand is so formulaic and boring. I just never got into it. I always scraped by in my math classes. I think the highest grade I ever got in...
