I don't like math at all! Embarassed Embarassed
I am not good at it!Though my math is not so bad,but I really really really really hate it!
Especially math problems, Shocked Shocked I don't know how to do it.
When I do math work,I will always think that"Am I a foolish?If not,why can't I do it?"
As you see,how should I face the math?
And I am going to be a senior high school student,and math will be more difficult!And it is very very very very important!But I don't like it at all because I am not good at ait,even don't know how to learn it!
And it has become my biggest problem!
Who can come here and give me some good ideas to learn math?
Many many many thanks! Very Happy Very Happy

Math, the terrible horror in the school... Many paople thik that...but....
Is not true!
Math is very easy, and you can be good at it, you only need patient, but a lot of patient.

Some ideas from me (I think I m a very very good student, the best in my class):

1.-You need to see the Math like it is, a logical subject with no objections.
2.-You have to thik this "I can do it, because I m a very good student"
3.-You have to spend time making more math problems, not only the class problems.
4.-You have to understand the problems a the method for the solutions, this isnt a memorize subject
5.-You must erase the next idea from your "powerfull brain": I am not good at it!
6.-Try to enjoy the math, at least like a method for exercise you mind.

Very Happy

I can't understand math since now.
When I was elementary student I want to improve my math, so my parent had ever employed a tutor to teach my math.Few months later, Maybe my tutor was careful to me so I got a good grade in math.
But...
few years later, I always got a failed in math in junior high school, because math is getting to hard and complicated, so I give up my math and pay attention to other subjects.
Now, I still admire somepeople is excellent in math. Cool

Hi,
I am so sorry for hearing that you are not good at maths. Embarassed
In my opinion, maths is very interesting subject. I like it very much and am good at it. The reason why I am so much interested in maths is that our maths teacher is very charming. She teachs very well and all the students in our class like her. You don't like maths and even hate it. I think it is a little unfortunate. You should look for a good maths teacher for you. I am sure that a good maths teacher will make you like the subject! I wish you will love it in the future. Embarassed
Bye

Haha, I'm a junior in high school, senior next year, and I love math, I'm taking two math courses right now, Algebra II and Pre-Calculus. I'm going to take AP Calculus next year, and I'll probably even shoot for a math minor in college.

Yeah I'm a nerd. Rolling Eyes

I am a master. My major is mathematics.
I want to tell you: just look at maths as other lessons, just it.
Everyone is not the same.
so maybe I like maths, you like English.
Maybe it is an interest .

I think Iím pretty good in math, when I was in high school I was one of the best in the whole school, I even was nominated with nine more students to participate in a contest with other schools in our county. Now this is my first year in college and I have one year without math because for my career I just need to take three math classes, but when I have time I help my brother with his homework, he is in 9th grade and he isnít good in math, he needs to stay after class on Mondays and do some extra work to pass the class.

I think everyone has a special talent, maybe you canít be good at math, but you can be very good in other things. Just do your best and then you will see that all you do have a recompense. Wink

Hi.
I'm a Japanese student.
I'm good at Mathematics.
Some students like Math very much, and others like Sociology.
I think you don't need to worry about that you are poor at Math.
If you hate Math, You had better develop your strong point.
