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..

i agree about the money thing. math education should be more practical. just a bunch of nonesense.

i remember asking some of the die hard math whizzes in that controversial bhm math thread to translate the equation into a word problem and no one seemed to know how. this is why i think all those random numbers are a bunch of useless bullsh*t.

It's about memorizing formulas.
