    Math needs to die

    Post by Doc on Thu Sep 18, 2008 11:50 pm

    Who agrees? lol

    Yeah but I'm saying this because its the worst subject there is .... I mean one little mistake like a wrong sign can completely mess you up ... and since I can't ever read my own handwritting (Very Happy ) its been happening too often, especially on tests where I just zip through problems .... and some problems require too many freakin steps ... I don't know what Ima do when I get into calculus Shocked

    True...it used to get me angry when I get a test question wrong because I forgot to add a zero or misplaced a decimal etc...

    I don't think it should die though Wink

    Last year I did, and my Fall Semester teacher was the devil by the word! You lose points if you wrote your answer in decimals and not fractions. She gave "notebook quizzes" where she asked "On day xx what was the answer to question xx?" I might have the answer but forgot to write the letter choice...so I get it wrong.

    Thank God I don't have her and this year Im taking Geometry.

    yeah, I end up doing it too, and I'm usually right when I do it in my head instead of when I write it down on paper Shocked

    Steve wrote:i couldnt understand why people struggled with it when i was at school, now im not doing it regularly i can tell im not as good as i was

    lol probably because when they see the problem they don't know how to start ....

    lol, algebra 1 is too easy, I mean considering how young I am and how it comes so easily to me, it's hard to believe that people in my grade struggle with scientific notation. I mean seriously, it's not that hard.

    But tbh, math teachers waste your time with unnecessary stuff. I mean, we take like 1 month for 1 chapter in a book and then I finish 3 chapters in like 30 minutes. It's not right

    I love math, but I do have a problem with it, when I work stuff out in my head it just goes so quick I get the answer and write it, then my teacher thinks Im cheating because I can never remember how to do all the setting out, weird huh.

    Haha, i sorta kinda like math, after it's properly explained and i know how to do it atleast. But...it gets frustration i have to admit.

    But i don't think it should die. I mean, lots of jobs requier LOTS of math. Like...doctors, scientists, ect...So, it's someting everyone has to learn to get a good job in the future. (But i still don't like mat that much Razz)

    I am really bad at math, so I agree. However, I like History better than anyother subject.
