    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...

    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...

    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...

    Algebra Is Evil :o

    Once upon a time there was a girl who was given a book titled 'Algebra One'. She started it. Three times. Each time only getting halfway through before she had to start over because of her grades. She finally switched programs and is now in the middle of restarting that one as...

    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...

    Huh???

    Okay, I can count well and budget my money good. But other than that, complicated equations leave me lost! :-o I would say I'm only good to up to 6th grade math! Seriously. From then on, it was the only subject at school that I earned a hard F on. Heehee! XD It was weird...

    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...

    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!

    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...

    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...
