Hello, It isn't uncommon to hear someone say, "I was horrible in Math". The problem with such utterances is that 'horrible' is a relative word and so I have really never understood what level of Maths was the speaker 'horrible' in. But I have come to some conclusion based on the profession of the people who were 'horrible' in maths that the implied maths level is secondary school maths. What is really difficult for me to understand is how can people find school maths hard ? When I was in school preparing for my O-Levels, Maths/Physics were the only subjects I looked forward to because they took the least of my time, whereas other subjects like biology/literature too so much of my time. I preferred maths related subjects for the mere fact that once the relationship between what is discussed is discerned it will always stay in my head no matter how. For some reason my brain likes relationships and hence anything I see/do, I try to find patterns. One of the subjects which was always cumbersome to me was literature because I was never connected to most of the stories I read. I remember in junior secondary school we had Romeo and Juliet as one of our prescribed books and was always nervous taking tests. I simply failed to understand the expression of human sentiment, passion behind the words and discern the sociological factors they present. Questions like, "Why did Romeo say such and such?" used to baffle me. The general consensus is that most people tend to prefer literature over maths, the reason of which I am still ignorant to and baffled by. You can weigh in your insights.
