B) Middle School: Ugh equations n shit, man this is so much worse than elementary school
c) High School: Fuck man, all this trigonometry, sin cos bullshit, polar coordinates and shit, this pretty hard
d) College: WTF, FUCK THIS STUPID CALCULUS FINDING THE THIRD INTEGRAL OF A IMPLICIT FUNCTION FUCK THAT I DON'T GET SHIT FUCK
e) Advanced College: MAN I THOUGHT CALC WAS BAD, FUCK THIS LINEAR ALGEBRA, VECTORS IN THE 8th DIMENSION SHIT MAN, AT LEAST CALC I COULDS SEE WHAT THE FUCK I WAS DOING, NOW I'm JUST FUCK A NUMBER IN THE ASS AND THEN SOMEHOW FIGURING OUT SOME OTHER GAY SHIT
d) Graduate School and Beyond: This theoretical physics man... this ain't even math.. all I'm doing is making up some shit, using a couple numbers and getting paid, if only I had known math was going to be this easy before.
Aside from its incredible value in real-world applications (science, engineering, business, etc.), mathematics is also taught in schools because it's the best system to demonstrate and strengthen the vital concepts of deductive reasoning, objectivity, and abstract thinking.
People who are quick to say they hate math are typically those who had horrible math teachers/curricula in school, and never grasped the basic underlying concepts of math. Other reasons for an individual's poor math skills might include having a short attention span, no confidence to question what isn't understood, and the simple reinforcement by peers that it's OK to remain bad at math. But like a sonet or a piece of sheet music, mathematics reveals its beauty to those who speak its language.
"No, YOU just suck at doing it."
2) A system of numbers and variables believed to be useful in everyday life
X+3X-2Y<8XY ??? SCREW MATH!!!
2) When I majored in math- i thought i had done a great thing, but it turns out my head is endlessly cluttered with meaningless numbers and symbols (!!!)
Person 2: Ugh i had to do math homework...
Person 1: Wow that has got to hurt...
Person 2: Yeah it sure left a mark...
