I am terrible at maths and I mean really bad I'm 23 and still struggle with fractions, percentages and other basic math and I usually have problems working sums out in my head. If you said add 7 and 16 I would'nt be able to do it i'd have to count on my fingers or write it down but upon witing it down I see that I can add 14 to 7 to make 21 and then just add on the extra 2 to make 23.

Anyway I was thinking about going to my library and getting some GCSE math books out and really trying to train my brain to think in a different way.

My math teacher used to always say to me that I'm working the equation out correctly but I don't really understand what's going on and when she changes something around in the sum I can't do it and this is because I don't actually truly understand it.

I'd love to be smart at math but I'm wondering if I can train my brain to accept numbers, remember the rules behind the equations and think more like a mathematician :(
