    2+2=7!

    Ok, I'm not THAT bad. I can add, and subtract.  On a good day, multiply and divide.  But no alegbra, no fractions, no word problems, nothing.  Got it? Man, my kids are so screwed.

    Math Has Ruined My Life.

    Everything that has went wrong in my life I can honestly blame on math. It took my almost perfect ACT score and turned it into remedial city. I have lost scholarship, sleep, and 30 lbs because of math. I took college algebra three times before I made a C. I picked the...

    Math Moron.

    I am a math moron. Ever since grade 4 (when multiplication started) I struggled with math. I just can't do it. In high school I failed grade 9 and 10 math and had to repeat both years. I felt like such an idiot. My grade 9 and 10 math teachers made a laughingstock out of me too...

    Used To Be Good Then It Went Downhill

    When I was in junior school I was really good at maths and the second I went into secondary school it all went downhill and I think I know why. Due to the large number of pupils all the classes that had spaces for pupils who were good were full so as a result I went into the...

    Mental Block

    I am so intimidated by the subject of math that I would make my husband (big math geek) check my son's math homework for fear that I wouldn't know the right answer myself. Probably the most humiliating thing about this phobia is the fact that I'm Asian and people just seem to...

    My dad was a Civil Engineer and used a lot of it in his job. I remember seeing all these formulas and numbers n his blueprints... He was fantastic at Math.  I was ashamed to ask my dad for help so my marks were always low and he would ask me why I didnt ask for help. I...

    Not Uneducated. Self-enducated.

    If someone held a gun to my head and said, "DO LONG DIVISION OR I'LL BLOW YOUR BRAINS OUT!" I'd be really screwed. Asking me to solve even rudimentary mathematical problems would be like asking me to impregnate myself, or to travel back...

    If Words Were Spelled With Numbers Instead Of Letters I'd Be Illiterate

    Wouldn't be able to spell "math" or "help" for that matter. Wouldn't be able to read or type or even play on EP......what a horrid thought!

    I've had issues with math since the 5th grade. Because of this, i have been retained in the 3rd grade. It's the numbers, the symbols, the counting, the final answer.
