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. - funnyuser

That doesn't stop you from calling your friends and meeting up with them does it?

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

Its in a special needs school. LOL.

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. - Jake09

This whole list is wrong.

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

The Sun is shining The Birds are Chirping and I HAVE THIS STUPID PIECE OF MATH WORK IN MY FACE! - Jake09

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

4 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. - NoodleRidley

"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

Ok I'm back from those stupid 7 hours! No Do this Math! No You kill me Curse you school! - Jake09

Well I mean it’s math class isn’t that what we’re talking about? OBVIOUSLY the homework is gonna be about math! Also it’s so you don’t forget because once you learn something you need to review it or else you’ll just forget it.

5 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. - HoldenFanatic

6 You have to do It

It's useless


7 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

Bruh, I could do fourth grade math in 2 seconds.

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

8 It's boring
9 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.

10 Homework

The Newcomers

? Dividing with remainders

The Contenders

11 It's confusing

Too confusing. Even if you are smart.

12 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 - ikerevievs

My 3rd Grade Teacher Thought It was my favorite subject no it's my worst - Jake09

13 It's the worst part of school

On the contrary I love math. I always get 100% on tests and homework. But not everybody likes it. - Epekov

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

Come on why do we need to WHY WHY WHY! - Jake09

Sorry, Jake, but I love mathematics. One of my faves. Let's agree to differ. - PositronWildhawk

14 The teacher is terrible

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

He never explains anything. Seriously.

How would you know, you don't come to my school - cdxtreme

Nope only one.

15 It's hard
16 You never use 95% of the material


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

It's not ridiculous, we need to know it, even if we don't like it. - funnyuser

Whoever added this is ignorant.
Math is one of the most important subject for our technology! - Flav

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 rember 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 - Jake09

22 You don't understand it

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

23 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. - Entranced98

24 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. - MChkflaguard_Yt

25 When you're in 10th grade Academic, they want you to go to 11th grade College or University. Not 11th Workplace.
26 Equations, inequalities, and absolute value
27 Mathematics is incredibly limited

The restriction is mathematics comes due to the fact that every argument is carefully examined it takes too long to build enough momentum to get anywhere unless one dedicates one's entire lives to understand.

28 They don't watch to see if students are working or playing Douchebag life
29 Triangles are useless.
30 The teacher gets very picky on how you do the work
31 Statistics

I nearly failed that class's midterm!
