    No, I am not. I'm like, dyslexic when it comes to math, and it's honestly embarrassing. I tried everything in school to get better at it -- and while I was a bit stubborn with some things, I did try. Some teachers got through to me (there was one, actually, in elementary school... amazing.) but a lot of the others.. I don't know. Not that that matters, because I did learn from them. I really did. But those skills didn't carry through to my life now. I cannot understand numbers or math or anything, at all. It's not something I'm proud of. I wish I understood math how everyone else did. But I do not, at all.

    Similar here. Took multivariable calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, math methods in physics. I always had to work at it, but was reasonably successful. Sadly I don't actually need to do math at this level very often, so am woefully out of practice.

    Yes, I was always good at math.

In high school, after raising my hand for the tenth time to say I didn't understand, my teacher actually said to me, "You're never going to get it, so you need to just give up."

    That teacher was such a great motivator.
    That is the worst thing a teacher can say!

    Not even in physics?

    I'm good at math, at least relative to the average person. I like calculus but I'm not such a big fan of trigonometry. I just feel like it's too much of a "black box."

    My research is very applications-oriented. I suppose it's more that I do certain types of calculations over and over, and don't have to revisit math outside of this very often. I am also an experimentalist, so do not get into the sort of theoretical development, or even simulation and modelling, that some of my colleagues do. My calculations support experimental design, are validated/refined using experimental results, and then used to design devices.

    I have tried, but have never passed a calculus class. I once gave up on math. Now, I work with numbers in a job that I mostly taught myself how to do, and am decidedly not failing. Far from it. It wouldn't be the only example of a skill I've picked up better alone than under supervision.

    Yes. It's not effortless however. I have to pay attention and study.

    I don't like math it frustrates me, thus I don't do well with it
