I like math for practical purposes, it's extremely dull on its own. I use it as a means to an end for problem solving. That's it.

^no other professions exist

I had one great math teacher my entire academic career. If she had been my math teacher from the first moment I started school to when I ended I undoubtedly would have been a math major.  She made math so simple for me.  It's like everything she said made perfect sense. It was amazing.

  But she was just a great teacher.

That is so Haitian of you. They are so closed minded to anything else. It's like everything else is a colossal waste of time when you go to college. My brother was actually admitted to med school and considered it but since he doesn't like blood, he turned to computer science. He was just a brilliant student all around, though.

My sis ended up studying engineering but she studied her ass off and sweated bullets to get that diploma. And she didn't remain an engineer because she wasn't that good at it anyways. She did it more because of family pressure and because that's what her friends were doing. Myself, I simply sucked at it.

For me, it always made sense when my math teachers were explaining it to me. I was hardly ever lost while in class. It was when I went home and looked at my chicken scratch notes that I didn't get it.

Math never made sense to me in any situation and I don't remember much of what I learned anyway. Hell, I even have the Everyday math for dummies book on a shelf.

Oh, I understand the importance of math. I'm just saying that some people are not naturally inclined to do well in math. Must be a right brain, left brain thing, I don't know. I always excelled at literature and languages but math and physics always were a stumbling block. For some people, it's the opposite and math comes easy to them.


I am hella late in responding but I have to disagree.  You tend to be good in the "arts" because you practiced for so many hours at it and maybe people subconsciously promoted that girls should stay in soft arts and boys stay in math and science.  I am somewhat paraphrasing a section of Malcolm Gladwell's book.
