Math secret no 3456:

'Pre-Algebra' is actually the fake name for 'Stupid Course That Does Not Help With Algebra WHATSOEVER'.

Because everyone says math is hard, people come to believe it's hard and hold themselves back. It's a mental brainwash from the first time you hear it. Just like everything else it requires practice to learn and get good at it. : P

You can save yourself quite a bit of money if you can do percentages in your head, when at the store shopping.

Part of the game of Pool relies on the angles between the diamonds on the sides of the table to calculate how a shot will ricochet off the sides and where it will go.

I don't understand how so many people can hate Math. Math is beautiful, constant, and universal. In school what I hated was English. Give me math problems any day, what I hate is stupid questions like 'What was Shakespeare thinking when he wrote this chapter?' 'What do you think Sylvia Plaith's metaphors referred to in her life?' 'What are some emotions the author may have felt that were conveyed through his writing?'

Back on topic, I've always liked this one: 0 to the power of 0 = 1. This is, Nothing, multiplied by nothing no times, equals something.

Math is a tool, it's something you have no choice in learning, no matter how mind-numbing, pencil biting, calculator banging, textbook throwing, random cursing, chocolate nibbling it is. I despise and refute it with all my being, but everywhere I go, math will be apart of my life...forever.

But either way, those were some interesting facts to know. Maybe next time when I look at parallel lines I will not cringe, but laugh a little, and what the heck are Asymptotes? I haven't learned those yet.


A curve that approaches a function of some sort but doesn't usually reach the "end" ...i can't explain for crap...Sorta like when you know a function gives you a plateau, but the plateau doesn't exactly show a plateau, you can say "this graph is approaching an asymptote..."...blah blah blah i still can't explain LOL
something like that... i use stuff like that in bio-stat..... uni stat/math sucks ass LOL...but math is awesome when you know how to do it...stuff begins to make sense...if your studying in a field that has appro. 50% math :(....im so sad

but i do find it funni when peole go "whaaaaaaaaaat????? whats the difference between a whole number and a real number and an integer???" LOL Why do ppl get confused over it?? They're pretty much the same thing except real numbers don't have imaginary numbers (like components of i or ummmmmmmmm i think it was sqrt of -1) lol...i think....dont quote me on this

Lets see any number divide by 0 is undefined.

And because I was doing it..Polynominals.
single roots are a straight line
double roots are a bounce having a maximum and minimum
triple root are a kink/inflection point
