I love math! And I get so frustrated when I'm doing homework with my niece and nephew. I don't like the way it's taught in the US. It's complicated for no reason.!

I think people who teach must have a physics background and world religion background(no propaganda just straight truth) and business/economic and psychology background.


You taught yourself math? Wow. That's what I mean by being naturally inclined. It's like math people see things in three dimensions or something. I wish you had too. My dad would beat my ass when he saw my grades. He was the worst teacher on earth

You cannot teach through fear, but through knowledge and understanding both the metaphysics and the practicality of knowing such. That's the problem I have with those who cannot realize and apperciate people's different strengths. It's just not your strength, but he did know that you can learn it, but not to your strengths he just didn't know how to express that.

I have always been naturally smart. I could ace tests without really trying hard or studying. But math...it always took me so long of studying and working example problems over and over to get it. I don't feel like I ever had a teacher that tried to make learning math fun. My teachers just mostly spoke of how important math is and told us to work hard and study. I never associated math with being fun...only hard. Something has to change to make math more enjoyable for those who don't naturally understand it. I had to take college Algebra twice; granted, I didn't study much the first time around, but the coursework was really loaded and we had to memorize so many formulas. Eventually all of the formulas began to look alike.

My dream is to become a Sociologist. There are so many things that need to change in the US school system, especially in the low income school districts. Things need to change on a micro level in order to see changes on a macro level, including the way children are taught. Children need to be taught critical thinking and leadership skills during elementary school years. Critical thinking and leadership skills are not being taught to children from poor backgrounds. Parents are not involved enough, and many don't know much either. They just send their children off to school and expect the teachers to be the sole teachers of knowledge.

I wasn't born to appease/accomdate/disappear/etc for anyone. You can ignore me.

You know what was so hard about math to me.. Was that there was no why... I'm a why person and when you tell me this is just the way it is because this is just the way it is it makes it complicated for me to adjust to reason.. After I stop fighting the rules of math it doesn't seem as complicated..
