    Im good at math and its interesting. But really only learn what is required for what i need. I made it through calculus in college. Hardest part for me with calculus was the fact i woke up at 5pm and worked 12 hour shift from 6:30pm to 7:00am and my calculus class was at 9:00am

    NO. I hated it at school I felt it like a torture and saw the teacher like a dick-tator (well he was).

    Later (after university) I studied graphology and I must say it is much more useful.

    That is true I may work one day (only one) about becoming friend with numbers as well. I have already started with numerology, not so bad....

    I can learn up to a point, but then I forget the equations and all that if I don't use them regularly, which I usually don't. So basic, everyday math, yes! I enjoy that kind of math. Others, I would have to relearn. Overall, though, math wasn't my favorite subject.

So yeah I don't think I am 'bad' at math, just average.
    There's a lot of rote memorization in math which drives me nuts. Coding's much easier since it's more pure logic.

    I'm pretty good at math I just didn't get into it deep enough but it's a really interesting area to get into.

    Maths has always been like meditation, because I naturally like solving systems and investigating techniques. Plus my Dad is an engineer and stored old maths and science books in my room when I was young, so I learnt a lot from self study and had him as a good resource to ask things when needed.

    That sounds like bad teaching. No wonder it drove you nuts. Math is about patterns, processes, and results, but I suppose it is harder to teach that way for someone who doesn't really understand it him/herself.

    i never had a natural ability for it, and opted out of any high level math because of it. i didn’t even finish algebra 2 in high school, i took the slacker math class called “personal finance.” i did score decently in math on standardized tests, but it was definitely my weakest subject.

    the only part i found easy was statistics, and i managed a good grade in my community college stats class lol. and i can do pretty quick basic mental math.

    I am excellent in algebra but terrible in geometry.

    As a subject in HS, I struggle a lot with Maths but that's mostly just because I'm always too lazy to practice.
    Normal Math, like simply adding/subtracting number is my head is quite easy for me although since I'm kind of skeptical about everything I do, I will appear very slow. Even if it just takes me a fraction of a second to triple numbers, I'll do it over and over again to see if I'm actually right idk why
