Worst Things About Math Class

The Top Ten

1 How it's taught

A part of me wants to do home schooling, but I'll miss my friends. You need to know more than one way to do it sometimes.

Its somehow our fault that the teacher can't teach the class right

It's in a special needs school. LOL.

Argh, my maths teacher is literally the Kim Jong-Il of my class -_-

2 Stuff is on your test even if you didn't learn it

YES! That fact is so true! My teacher's all like, "yeah, you can do this, it's not that hard". Well no duh, you're the math teacher! First twenty questions aren't terrible, but the last few you spend ten minutes staring at it like what the heck is this? We didn't do this in class! Worst part is, he doesn't give us our tests back when he marks them, well, how do you know if you did good or no? How do you know what to work on? Then it just ends up on your report card! It sucks big time!

I didn't learn something and it was on my paper and I got the lowest grade. Oh My.

My book didn’t teach me how to subtract negative fractions and a negative fractions appears on the test

3 If you're not good at math you have to go to Summer School

I had to go to summer school for math when I was in like 10th grade.

The Sun is shining The Birds are Chirping and I HAVE THIS STUPID PIECE OF MATH WORK IN MY FACE!

4 It's boring
5 You mostly get homework that's Math

I get math homework every single day, including weekends. Add that to all of my unfinished ZAP work and it's TORTURE.

Got 20 hours of holiday maths homework. Was very close to burning the lot

Ok I'm back from those stupid 7 hours! No Do this Math! No You kill me Curse you school!

"Didn't complete your homework? Get out of my class! I said, GET OUT OF MY CLASS! You kids ruin my image." - My Maths Teacher

6 It gets harder and harder

I'm in middle school - Maths is killing me. All these stupid exponents, variables, constants, and all that jazz. And why in the world would we ever have to construct angles and parallel lines with a compass, for heaven's sake?

@Jake, just wait till you get to 10th grade. You have to learn polynomials and integral exponents and all that

Preschool-1st grade: 1+1=2
2nd-4th grade: 20x20=200
5th-8th grade: geometry and algebra
9th-12th grade: AP calculus, statistics, and trigonometry
College: basically the same stuff you learned in high school but 1000% harder

When I was in Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade Its like piece of cake. Now I'm in 4th Grade right now and it's BLOODY HARDY

7 Homework
8 You have to do It

If a car is going 40 mph at you from a distance of 40 yards and your car is going 20 how long will it take for the car to get to you? Bitch ima get outta way >:(

9 No bathroom breaks

That annoying moment when you have to use the bathroom and the teacher won't let you go because their afraid you will miss out on a very important lesson. Then it turns out to be a lesson you learned last year.

This applies to EVERY class, not just math class...

You need to go the toilet.

I mean seriously, it’s stupid how teachers don’t let people use the bathroom. If you hold your pee too long, it can cause serious health problems. So it’s better if students get sick just so they don’t miss out on math tutorials. As if these math tutorials are more important than taking care of health. NO! Health comes first. Using the bathroom isn’t a privilege, it’s a human right for you to take care of your health.

10 A lot of the material is useless

I could go on and on about the nonsense my math teacher teaches my honors class. I'm either going to be a scientist or play baseball, so I don't need algebra and whatnot.

Just addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are useful in life.

math gives me depression

The Contenders

11 It's confusing

Too confusing. Even if you are smart.

12 It's hard
13 They act like it's your favorite thing in life

They say its not a waste of time when it really is a big waste of time

My 3rd Grade Teacher Thought It was my favorite subject no it's my worst

14 It's the worst part of school

I don't like math. I like social Studies and reading better. Lots of memorizing.

Come on why do we need to WHY WHY WHY!

15 You never use 95% of the material

WHO IS GONNA USE THE STUFF YOU LEARNED IN CALCULUS WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO BUY CLOTHES!?!?

16 The teacher is terrible

Mine sure is, she keeps texting other teachers while teaching and beats literally ANYBODY just because she's angry.

Detention! because you didn't do your homework which was too hard.

He never explains anything. Seriously.

17 You forget how to do a single step

This is how I got most of the problems wrong. So many steps in a formula, it's so hard memorizing them all in the correct order!

18 It's ridiculous
19 Remembering equations

I hated memorizing the formulas for my college statistics class. It was SOOO hard! :(

20 Showing your work

Yeah right that I will not remember if I write the formula every time!

Why not just tell us the formula over and over instead of making us write it!

21 It wastes your time

It wastes my recess sometimes

22 That one student who keeps whining about getting things wrong

There's no problems at all with just asking for help, but even the teachers get sick of them whining "oh, I got it wrong! " every two minutes. Seriously, these people ought to stop feeling sorry for themselves and respect the fact that others around them are actually serious about improving their skills and passing the class without being childish about it.

23 Algebra

I am in F.1 and it is so hard! Directed numbers and fractions worsen the condition. You have to remember in which occasions the number is directed or not, my brain is gonna explode in 5 seconds R.I.P.

24 The teacher gets very picky on how you do the work

My teacher gave me a bad grade because I didn't show my work!

25 You don't understand it

I don't understand it sometimes, but I keep on trying.
