Why math?Fellows I think this the right place to discuss. Tell me why the math is considered the toughest subject. What do you have to say about that. Where as I have seen it is said that it is critical, involves too much formulas etc that make it a unattractive and quite dry subject so people avoid it or just do it forcefully what is your point of view about that.

Re: Why math?Hi sparticus;
If a person discovers that he can do mathematics and hang with the big boys by adopting a simpler idea than rigor and proof then he/she can begin to make progress. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130108 19:18:11

Re: Why math?It is not tough for me. But some of my classmates does. 246 pages on Prime Numbers Wiki (+1) #5 20130123 01:18:00
Re: Why math?I know 7 students in my class that don't find math hard, and I am one of them. 4 of us are in an advanced math club, and again, I am in it.  n872yt3r Math Is Fun Rocks! By the power of the exponent, I square and cube you! #6 20130128 16:07:07
Re: Why math?
It is interesting that you mention this. I have a B.S. in mathematics, and this is the approach that I think was forced to learn in Calculus II (indefinite integration and infinite series).
