    Im sure I failed Chemistry,

    I think the reason that I am "horrible at math"

    is because I've always believed myself to be that way. I always joke around and tell people that I can't do math, and over the years I've actually convinced myself that I can't do math!

    As my first post I will express how horribly

    horrible I am at math. In fact, I am 100000% I'm going to fail my math course even with both a tutor and study buddy. The best part of math? When the bell rings.

    Most Of My Traumatic Experiences

    in life can be directly attributed to problems with math.  Tutors used to hit me and curse at me, teachers berated me for being "lazy" and my engineer father was deeply disappointed that I wouldn't be following in his footsteps. One tutor told my parents I would never...

    I was in my math class

    and my teacher decided to give a pop quiz. I knew right off the back I was going to fail the test. So for every question I wrote Jesus is the answer for everything. Right when my teacher started grading my test she literally got up from her desk and walked out the class room...

    My boyfriend is in Calculus.

    He showed me on of his homework problems.. I'm so glad my major doesn't need math like this. This was his problem: Suppose the interval [-4,-2] is partitioned into n=4 subintervals. What is the subinterval length delta x? List the grid points x0, x1, x2, x3, x4. What points...

    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 am, and always have been.

    When I think of all the time I've wasted at school trying to get to grips with the stupidest of equations and problems, and worrying myself sick over not being able to do the homework, then no wonder I started smoking at 13! I was under severe stress. It was the only thing that...

    Math is only needed if you are a banker

    or accountant. If anything you only need it to count your own money or else. If you know basic math you are ok. If you don't, you can still find hundred of job where you never use it. I went to college and I did plenty of jobs in my life and I barely use it. I worked as a school...

    In third grade I was diagnosed with dyscalculia.

    I was put in to the special education class but I never got any help. Now I'm older, and throughout most of my time in high school I've had no support and it's made a big impact on my life. I'm in the lowest set for maths at school and I never get above an E. I need to get a C...

    I'm terrible at math,

    and always have been. Anything beyond basic high school math is incomprehensible to me. As far as I'm concerned, people who are great at math should be call 'mathmagicians' not mathematicians.

    I left public school to do online homeschooling,

    and with mine, I can choose to do whatever classes I want, whenever. It is 24/7 and goes for as many years as I need until I finish. I have been in it for 7 months and finished enough work to graduate almost 2 years early...but...I still haven't done my algebra. I knew this...

    I always say I became an artist

    so I wouldn't have to do math....that didn't quite work out. I do tons of geometry and algebra. I still cannot do simple math in my head. My brain just isn't wired that way.

    while the teacher yaps away about some equation. Then I ask one question, and it seems like I'm the only one not understanding. That look the teacher gives me like I said I'm a magical chipmunk. Then all the stares from the students. Makes me wonder why I even try, when I know I...

    We all seem to know what is mathematics,

    but when it comes to define it we seem to fail completely. A dictionary meaning of mathematics could be a science dealing with study of quantities and their relationships expressed in numbers and other special symbols. Mathematics is the study of topics such as quantity...
