Short for

mathematics - the logical study of quantity (numbers) and abstract structure (geometry), their operations, properties, applications, and how they all interrelate.

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.

"Math sucks!"

"No, YOU just suck at doing it."

1) A source of common teenage suicide. Mostly defined as an area of academic study- but is known to cause mental health problems such as hallucinations, dizziness, and minor cases of concussion (usually from banging your head on a desk) Many retired drill sargeants and arabian assasins take up professions as math teachers to let their steam out on innocent, unfortunate students that had come to actually learn a valuable life skill. Children- avoid math at all costs (!!)

2) A system of numbers and variables believed to be useful in everyday life
