    When I say "creative writing", basically I mean poetry or anything fictional. Because that's just not happening...

    I did best in basic-level calculus and geometry. Caught onto the concepts more quickly than in other math classes. Things like verifying trig identities and learning function notation back in basic algebra really tripped me up (meaning it took a while to understand it or get used to it).

    Learning wtf functions were took me a long time, too. Once I realized that f(x) = 2x + 4 is the same thing as y = 2x + 4, it all made sense.

    literal equations are one of the easier portions of algebra (if not the easiest), so i think all types are prone to being good at them.

    personally, i like logarithms and gauss-jordan solved matrices

    Yeah I never bothered memorizing the matrix inverse formulas since Gauss-Jordan elimination was just as easy and isn't prone to a faulty memory.

    yeah, inverse matrices are neat, but only one problem on my college algebra final did I have to resort to that method. Passed that class with a B this semester. I'm proud of myself.

    I was better at the kind of math that came before multiplication and division. Seriously, screw math.

    That coming from an ISTJ; is fantabulous. <3

    Well, we are currently on derivations and integrals (advanced ones). What I ever liked were probably equations (of each kind), and geometry. The worst was probably that bullshit about goniometrics (like how many is sinus Pi/2), logarithms, and analytical geometry.

    I don't like maths at all, it's just boring bullshit for me, but on the other side, I must appreciate inner beauty of the system..

    lol..
    I just wonder, if level of our European math education differ from your in US.
    I'd give you a question to test it:
    We have function: y = (1/2)^x On which intervals the graph will be creasing, and on which intervals decreasing? (^ means x-th power)

    Isn't that an equation for a parabola?
