Haha, those are fun... for the most part. You’re probably right, though. I just find it harder to have the perseverance to solve problems with logarithms and all that jazz (facepalm).
Yeah it’s almost like a puzzle to be solved or a maze to navigate through, “here’s X within the problem, now how do I get it all by itself or find out if there are multiple values for X?”. It’s the only part of math I enjoy apart from maybe matrices, that was fun to learn too lol.
I’ve always found it hard as well. Just gotta treat it like your future depends on it (because it kinda does
) and then just go at it with everything you got.
Dang matrices were hard to get the hang of! After a while though it ended up being pretty fun. I like most graphing problems, too. My favorite is the equation y=mx+b.
I fail to see how I can apply logarithms to my book-writing and artwork (Im in no way a math wiz) but I’m doing the best I can to keep up that mindset haha. Teacher always told me math makes you think, and I do see relations with the logic class I took a couple years ago. Really interesting—you can’t have math without logic!
I understand the importance of math, but once you already know where your talents reside I don’t see why we’re forced to learn it lol. Like most business majors require math up to calculus for whatever reason... I’ve literally spoken to executive officers before about it, “have you ever used calculus in your life?” and they all answer along the lines “not once outside of college, you don’t need it”. One of em was a chief financial Officer which is almost as “mathy” as business can get
Same answers even for earlier math classes before calculus.
It can be one of two things... it’s just like you said, math makes you think and makes you an overall better thinker, or it’s just modern education trying to suck your wallet dry by forcing you to take overpriced classes that you really do not need lmao. I think it’s the latter considering it seems like 95% of people simply forget everything they’ve learned in classes they don’t need the moment they’re done with it, and going off of the fact that executive officers, extremely smart people, have said that it’s pointless.
