View Full Version : Who else hates maths?

I have to say, that this is a REAL miracle... I mean, the school at my country began only a week ago, but somehow it managed to make me hate maths from heart! It's not only boring, but it's the same in every year and the only difference is the difficulty of the problems. Plus the fact, that I'm not good at it, makes me hate it even more!

Geography and English are good subjects, I like them, but maths is a another topic. I simply can't bring up sentimental feelings toward this subject :hea:

If you agree, raise your hand! :D

I hate everything on school XD

*raises hand*

I have never liked maths, and now even though I'm fairly competent at it, I still don't like maths :rolleyes:

Cant Stand Maths. Especially my new teacher who I really dislike.

I don't really enjoy many subjects, but I like English

I don't despise it, but I don't like it either.

Now art, I hate art!

I hate maths.. and I hate the fact that I have to study it even if i dont need in the future.. :hea:

tony.. art is brill :D

tony.. art is brill :D

I can't stand art!

It's pointless :p

I hate everything on school XD

lmao, it's so true XD Except for arts, because I like it. The stupid teacher always gives us the work to 'draw somebody who you really like' And I usually draw Lara or Kurtis XD

I hated it! I'm so happy I dropped it, along with science :D

Me, because I'm rubbish at it. :o I much prefer English - words rule over numbers any day. :D

Yep, same here! :D Words rule the world! :jmp:

I wont go as far to say I love it (Can't stand mathematical induction :mad: ) but I enjoy a lot of it, especially calculus :jmp:. You guys probably haven't been taught it well. :wve:

Oo Is somebody going to set the cleaner on me? :whi:

Like what?

How to make beautiful things. :p

Like what?

Like you suck at drawing and don't work as an artist. Time and money earned from this lesson:ton:

How to make beautiful things. :p

You can learn a lot more from other subjects.

I knew this would get a bad response.

How to make beautiful things. :p

yer that's it :D

and besides art is a part of our culture.. and it would be rather boring without it

you do know what art is right? Movies, music, Paintings, Drawings etc.. that all is art..

You can learn a lot more from other subjects.

I knew this would get a bad response.

It's not just about 'learning'. Art is another form of expression, like writing.

As for numbers...how can you express anything with those? =/

yer that's it :D

and besides art is a part of our culture.. and it would be rather boring without it

you do know what art is right? Movies, music, Paintings, Drawings etc.. that all is art..

I'm talking about art as in Art.

Not performing arts like music and drama.

I love music and drama :D

Do you dare to say you hate all of our works here that we've done here :mad:

No, it's the other way around.

Accept I don't like maths.

So basically, I want art to burn in bloody hell! :p

@Micki: :rolleyes:

I just hate art lessons.

I didn't mean all art like music etc.

Art as in the art lessons you do in school.

My brother says the same. He's a really good artist, but he hates art as a subject, because 'That stupid ***** doesn't let me to do my best creating'

But i'm just annoyed that it's compulsory for most of your schooling.

Besides, my teacher is the most idiotic person on Earth!

I think it's an interesting subject.

11-09-06, 18:23

ok...let me join in on the complaining...

my ****ing teacher today totally skipped the steps on how to derive a formula for the Uxx (read as "u sub xx)...which is the second partial derivative with respect to x...arse..had to figure out by myself that you first use the product rule then the chain rule..:rolleyes:

I like the math too, sorry. Is more, I think that they are absurdly easy

But, don't put me here now a piece of formula so that resolve it, eh? :p

I say that the concepts are easy. Only one must lend a lot of attention and to be concentrated, that yes.

OMG dude run before this thread attacks you! :p jk.

I really do hate maths...Sure we should know whats 1 + 1, but doing the whole Phythagoras Theorm etc stuff should only be for those who want to use Maths in their lives o.o I dont find it that important

Maths - I like the class cos I sit with a friend, the teacher is cool and it's y'know just quite pleasant to be there (except for the fact I may be asked to solve something in which case I turn into a bumbling fool where all knowledge has left the brain).

The work however... I know my formulas it's just getting the correct numbers and values and what else that always seems to go wrong, LOL!

I can't believe I actually picked Higher Maths (I'm surprised I managed to pass my Standard Grade exam, LoL) and then actually asked my teacher for extra work to do at home - oh well, if it's a way to help with maths then it's all good :D

I absolutely DESPISE math and everything about it. I'm no good at it, so that doesn't really help. I try, but I'm just not good at it. Although last year I managed to keep up a B most of the year in the class, this year I've sunk to a C+ or something, and it's only the first quarter of the school year. :(

I'm number dyslexic (if I have to write down / say more than 4 numbers in a sequence, I will get at least 2 of them muddled up. I'm quite used to dialling wrong numbers on telephones... :o) , so I find maths a nightmare. My husband is a maths whizz-kid and finds it really easy (he can count in hexadecimal and work out 'to the power of....' type equations in his head... :rolleyes:), but if I'm presented with even relatively simple equations, I get very flustered because I can't picture them in my head in any way and they jumble themselves up on the page. Words I'm fine with - maths makes me feel stoopid... :(

Geck-o-Lizard

11-09-06, 20:56

I know what you mean. It's especially annoying when it happens mid-quadratic-equation and none of the numbers in the sum make sense. http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/4928/anxiousns1.gif

I can count hexadecimal pretty easily but mainly only because I use it to define colours when I'm doing web design stuff. :)

Maths used to be a pain in Primary School. High School seemes way easier. So I think I'm getting back into the joy of it.

Okay I got some maths homework today and I need some help but first to answer that question on calculus - I have no idea, it's name is just "Higher Maths". If it helps we've done Recurrence Relation, Median, Midpoint and other stuff of a triangle and functions and graphs.

As for the questions...

"The functions f, g and h are defined as

f(x) = x +1 g(x) = 2x3 and h(x) = x2

Find the formula for the following

f(g(x)) g(f(x)) f(h(x)) f-1(x) g-1(x)

for the first 3 I have:

g = 2x3

f(g) = x(2x3)+1

= 2x4 + 1

f = x + 1

g (f) = 2x3(x + 1)

= 2x4 + 2x3

= 4x7

h = x2

f(h) = x(x2)+1

=x3+1

I don't have anything for the last two but I think the first 3 are completely wrong so can anyone check and help me with that (the homework sheet is for Friday so I'm quite glad I'm doing this early).

Oh and if you've to draw f(x) = x2 (which is a parabola), then -f(x) of that (which would be the parabola upside down) and then f(-x) + 2 would that be the parabola moved up 2 because if it's reflected on the y-axis it'd look exactly the same as the first parabola, right? And yes, I have confused myself typing that out, LoL.

Apologies for not being able to put the square values at the top, don't know the code for it so they just got smalled :p

The first one I believe that is thus,

g = 2x3

f(g) = x + 2x3(x)

= x + 2x4 = 2x5

but you have to assure it because that I learned this thousand years ago.

The other I see them well :ton: ;)

are you sure you copied the problems exactly....cause g(x) seems to me as a constant function...cause x3 and x aren't the same variables...and your f(g(x)) is wrong...:p
