    Stupid Algebra, stop making me looking for your X, she is not coming back and don't bother looking for Y either.

    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...

    Math... What Is That ?

      I suck at math , and algebra, and calculus and everything that has to do with numbers. I can balance my checkbook and make calculations about how much I need to spend each month but that´s about it. My daughter is in fifth grade. I am not at that level, yet. I...

    In Countless Ways

    1. I argued with one of you in here that I am 34. Huh. It took YOUR math to show me I'm REALLY 33!  2. I believe 1+1= 3 or more! See: 1 male + 1 female = offspring!  C'mon! In my defense, I'm HALF right! :) 3.Take a look at my bank book. No...

    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...

    Man I Hate Calculus!!!!!!!

    I always struggled a little but calculus straight killed me. It really confused and frustrated me. I used to buckle down and study every night and 10 minutes later I couldn't remember anything I just learned. I got a tutor and everything but I just couldn't get it. What really...

    I Was So Ashamed.

    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...

    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...

    I Have No Career!

    Since I was 17,  I've been wringing my hands about what I wanna be when I grow up.  I'm 49.  I still don't know.  Everything I think of gets ruled out because it requires...you guessed it...MATH!  At birth I got the artistic bent and creativity thing...

    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...

    Algebra Is Evil :o

    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...

    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!

    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.
