Re: Why girls don't like math?

Most people do not like math.

And according to my calculations, 86.58% of the people who say they like it, hate it!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Why girls don't like math?

When I play with my cousins, we always play "The adding game" with my deck of cards, and it is a math game because it involves basic addition skills. I have a girl among my cousins, she's not that good in math, but she made that game. smile

But, my cousins always hate math, and wants always Ninjago. I don't know why, too. smile

Re: Why girls don't like math?

Not really. Not just English but your own language is just as important. If you can not speak or write you will not be able to convey your ideas to other people.
