@Blank_Brunette, there are some things that make math interesting.

Look at the big picture. You can get trapped in a small corner of math that might be unappealing to you, but you'll find it has a vast store of jewels as you explore more math and math applications. Unlike other subjects, math just feels fundamentally right. It builds upon itself like no other fields, and all of maths has come from only a few starting rules. Perhaps you could look up a book containing famous mathematical discoveries, some of them are simply amazing...

The more advanced maths you do, the more interesting it gets and the better the feeling when you do it. So keep at it

I hate maths as well- I'm good at shapes, angles and area, but the rest seems hard to me.

yeah, shapes and angles are ok, along with fractions, but it just hurts my head when i look at things like algerbra and exponential growth. its hard for me. i dont know why.

Some people I know like numbers very much...

Ramanujan was lying on his deathbed in Chennai, India when his english chum G.H.Hardy took a plane from Cambridge to visit him in India. Well you see , he came to see him for the last time and complained to his indian friend:-

Hardy:- the taxi cab i took has the most un-interesting number..

Ramanujan:- which number?

Hardy:- 1729.

Ramanujan:- Hey there wait!!!! 1729... is NOT un interesting!

Hardy:- ...!

Ramanujan smiled weakly and said:-

- You see : 1729 is the smallest number which can be written as

1729 = 10^3 + 9^3

and

1729 = 12^3 + 1^3

that is, 1729 is the smallest number which can be broken down into two cubes in 2 different ways...

and the next such number is a very very large one in fact...

Algebra is actually pretty easy. Once u understand it's alright just everyone's lyk it's soooo hard If u really don't lyk math it's best to get a job that has no need for it lyk i did.

Algebra really isn't too difficult, constant revision is key to success but then I guess I can say that about ALL areas of maths:P

I kind of like her, good singer. Did you see her on the Xfactor? Me and Stacy had a right good laugh! She was flinging her head around the place! So funny!
