who cares!

how can maths be fun? no matter how much anyone tries to make it fun, it wont be, there aint no point in tryin coz its just not possible! And even if you do manage to do it, its not like anyone is actually going to use it anyway! so what's the point!? anyway maths is just something that someone who hates children made up, to torture them and half the things you actually learn you will never need anyway!!!

Re: who cares!

Who cares? We do!

So sorry, Jessamy. You are in a difficult position, aren't you? You need to do maths, and it is important if you want a career, but you don't like it.

You say "half the things you actually learn you will never need anyway". But which half? If you want to do Business, Medicine, Engineering, Political Science, Carpentry, Electrical Trade, or most any worthwhile career, you will need to do lots of maths.

I believe there is an underlying reason you hate maths, and it is not the fault of maths itself, but more to do with how you have learned it.

Somewhere along the way it became hard for you, and every year it is just gets harder.

You need to go back to where it was easy and build yourself back up again.

Maths isn't easy, but it is CERTAIN.

Luckily for you there are now great resources to help students on the internet.

Re: who cares!

Of course, the 'half' is a mathmatical term. big_smile


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
