Top 10 Reasons to Hate Math

Hate math? Why? If you like math, don't be offended.

The Top Ten

1 It's hard

True, a lot of math is hard, but after a while and some practice, it gets easier (even though I still find it hard after endless review and practice)

Because of Algebra expression...Very difficult

What..NO?! MATH IS EASY! It's just boring!

Awww you use your mind for math, but not your mind to think that some people had it as their lowest (level) subject in school. We had special needs.

2 It's confusing

I don't understand a damm thing

3 It's boring


No color.
No creativity.
No life.

4 We are never using some of it in life

Forgive me, but that is simply an impudent statement. No matter what phenomenon you're describing, it roots down to complex mathematics. And chances are you'll come across the kind of mathematics taught in high schools in even the least mathematical of occupations. I can guarantee that it will come up in everyone's life. - PositronWildhawk

I doubt everyone will ever find it that important for their life. Algebra? Times Tables? Not everyone is born to be a brainiac. Many normal people have the maths skills of primary school/elementary school student it doesn't make us stupid, you just think everyone should become a brainiac.

5 If you have a learning problem.
6 Poor teacher
7 It has too many rules

Oh my gosh it does. Like in problems where it has more problems than one in one problem. 1. do the problems in parentheses first
2. do the exponents
3. do multiplication and division from left to right.
4. do addition and subtraction from left to right.

It took me a long time to memorize those rules! - funnyuser

8 Classroom dynamics
9 Failed in the past
10 It adds trouble, subtracts pleasure, divides attention and multiplies ignorance

That's the strong reason why I hate math with passion. It strongly affected me. - Delgia2k

Anyone want a challenge? Sag this to your maths teacher - Martinglez

That was so lit

That's genius

The Contenders

11 We barely learn it before the test
12 Give you more difficult problems to solve than you actually learned
13 Its repetitive equation-solving

100 questions on the some thing! why? ! - Ananya

14 The teachers only care about one solution and not considering an alternative

Yeah that's right they never consider our interpretation - Toucan

15 Mental Math doesn't get you anywhere

Finch Not everyone will be brilliant at math. It not everyone in the world needs to use it only the brainy ones who want to use it for careers like science or maths teacher

Down with it. - Ananya

Because without math there would be no computers, internet, or video games. - Finch

16 Pure equation worksheets are boring
17 You cannot argue with the teacher if your answer is acceptable or not

I can't argue, but sometimes I do and its not accepted.. - Ananya

18 Figures are not drawn to scale
19 Solving with pi and the square roots without the calculator is stressful
20 Finding the large numbers with the factorization is one burden.
