It only starts to get good when numbers turn into letters (that are sometimes Greek).

I love everything about math until I don't understand something, which is most of the time...

ME! The exterior angle thereom is one of my favorite mathematical concepts, even if it's a very easy topic. I also love the concept of something being infinitely close to things, like .9 repeating.

Then you are going to love calculus (assuming you don't already love calculus)

It's all about infinitely close. How do you divide by zero without dividing by zero? You see what happens when you divide by something infinitely close to zero.
Derivatives are an approximation of slop with an infinitely small change in x (run)
Integrals are approximations using squares with infinitely small bases.

IT'S AMAZING

I never liked or was any good at math up through the middle of high school. In fact, the only "F" I ever received was during the second marking period of Algebra II in 11th grade.

But at that time, I was heavily into ham radio and wanted to install an antenna at the top of a 25-foot mast. I had very little money to spend on the project and needed to calculate exactly how much guy rope to purchase that would support the antenna and mast. That's when I sat down and put all those trigonometric equations that puzzled me so much to practical use.

From that point on, everything math just clicked - so long as I could imagine a practical application for each equation. I bumped up my Algebra II grade to a "B" and finally ended with an "A".

I earned straight "A"s through Calculus III in college and to this day, enjoy working math problems the way other people might enjoy crossword puzzles.

I like it if its well explained to me.

but not that I love it or would like more math classes

It's not so much that I love it, but rather I want to understand it. Like looking at an incredible and vast landscape, but knowing your weak and limited mind can't fully appreciate it's beauty.

Math is fun once you get the hang of it and understand what's actually going on and how everything just works. I find it fascinating.

I love unlocking math when at first it’s difficult but then you get it! One of the best feelings ever!
