Do you think that people who say they enjoy math (algebra, calculus, trig, etc) are just lying to sound smart?

No, I know some people who really do love math. I don't understand it, but I don't think they are making it up.

I like mathS, but I don't love it. And everyone I know wouldn't say they loved it if they didn't, because they'd rather sound cool than smart.

I actually like algebra. It was my favourite subject at school. Probably because it was the only thing I was any good at!

I HATE MATH SO VERY MUCH!!!!
18 yrs ago - Sunday 3/30/03 - 7:31:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
No - I think they are just very wierd!

I think some people just like it because they are good at it. I suck at it.

No, I can see how it would be fun for some people, I liked fractions, I just hated the rest.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 4/25/03 - 6:57:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
No,they are smart,no one fakes liking math,if you hate it,its hard to keep it in,and if you love it,you REALLY love it
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 4/25/03 - 6:58:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I know some people who love it. I used to like it, too.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 4/25/03 - 7:05:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Naah, I really do like calc and trig.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 4/25/03 - 7:18:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I really liked math until algebra 2. I even made my own random equations for squares and cubes in my spare time (yeah, I'm a nerd)
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 4/25/03 - 7:23:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've loved math ever since I was 2 and my mother was teaching me addition... and basic basic algebra when I was 3... I'm good at it, and I like it, what more do you want... but calculus just bores the hell out of me... IT'S BORING!
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 4/25/03 - 7:53:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. If anything, I think it's more trendy to claim that you are a reader, the creative type, rather than a math person, which might seem geeky. I like math. When I doodle, it's numbers.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 4/25/03 - 7:56:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
When I was in school, it seemed like the people who didn't like/get algebra (me) were really good at things like history and english and vice versa.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 5/9/03 - 9:48:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I kind of had fun with it. And I'm not lying to sound smart because even though I had fun with it, I had a very hard time getting the right answers most of the time.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 5/9/03 - 10:01:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
I enjoyed math because it requires you to think a bit, it's not just useless memorization. I could have become a mathematician if I so desired.... but I don't like Math that much. I do know people who do genuinely love math though. And I ahve to agree... nobody says they love math to sound smart. It's a great way to get weggied. UL is right, people are more apt to say they love reading because it's the trendy thing to do.

No. I think some people really dig all kinds of mathematics.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 6/9/03 - 7:23:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I just think they're weirdos. I hate math.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/30/03 - 4:44:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with everyone that said no one says they love math just to sound smart, if they love it they really do. More power to them, someone needs to do those jobs that math teachers talk about that involve tons of math, and I sure don't want it to be me.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/30/03 - 9:49:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
what abt those who spend hard-earned dollars to pay for college just to study math? sounds too expensive for a lie.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/30/03 - 10:09:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I used to like math. It wasn't just to sound smart.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/30/03 - 11:43:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way, there are those folks who truely love math. All Math is is base 10 logic problems. If you know a person who likes logic problems (and there are quite a few out there), they prolly like math.

I know someone who is obsessed with math. He is a math genius.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 8/6/03 - 12:59:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I enjoy math because each problem is a like a puzzle, and it's rewarding, oddly, to figure them out.
