I hate it in general, but oddly enough, I enjoy it when I actually know what I'm doing. It's nice to feel accomplished at something you're not particularly confident in. ^.^

I was an idiot. I didn't go to school much, and when I did I rarely paid attention. Math is not in my skills list.

Math is complicated and boring.
Whenever I'm in math class, I would look at the board and think What the fuck is that?!.
And when I look at my textbook I would think What the fuck is this?!

Just stating my mind.
I used to be good at math...
But that's just a thing of the past now. xD

To the people who hate math:
you DO know that it is actually used a lot. Especially Calculus.
The whole point of learning math in the 21st century is to reach Calc.... unless you're literally doing hard, manual labor/monotonous labor which everyone is trying to get away from. There's a reason why after taking Calculus in college there are many other branches of calculus- calculus for business, there's calculus specifically used in each branch of science, etc.

I can even see it being used in the humanities- actually, calculus is probably the only math I could see being used for social sciences (aside from basic math). All the math we learn up until Calculus is too theoretical- its for precise and picture perfect problems in life... which as everyone knows, hardly happens. Calculus is meant to find out the real, practical problems- the realistic answers, not theoretical answers that rely on the problem to be simple to start with.

And aside from that... math is a LANGUAGE. It's a language of logic (not necessarily the only one). Again: there is a reason why almost all of the great philosophers we know in the past were also mathematicians. It helps you think correctly and logically. Its not just numbers- that equation or problem you're solving is a SENTENCE. You just have to rationalize it- and you can.

I don't like math. Thankfully I never have to do it again like at school. I find myself to be more interested in solving social problems or graphical puzzles because number crunching irritates me.

I'm good at math, but I find it boring.

When I took class teachers explained for a bit and the rest of the class was just work, and every day I had homework. Other days where just continuing to do work from the same thing the teacher explained the other day.

Main reason I think most people hate math is because of bad teachers.

The sad thing is that students aren't even taught real math until their sophomore or possibly junior year of college. And that's only if they pursue a mathematics major. This has the unfortunate side effect of making everybody think that math is doing calculations, which is simply not true. A good example of mathematics is the question: "Is the sum of two even numbers also even? Why?" It gets you to ask yourself what an even number is, and how even numbers are related to each other. It asks you to draw connections and to discover something on your own.
