    I would agree w// you. Most of my peers (I'm 17y.o.) do not like Maths but when I look at my mom or her peers and who succeeded in their lives they were good at Maths.
    So what's your point of view?

    I just find it so simple and straight forward. Its also so satisfying when I complete an equation. Currently Im studying computing to get onto compsci but i might change my mind and do accounting or something.

    I'm doing a GSCE - AS Level maths module with the Open Uni and I'm absolutely loving it.
    Never really understood algebra but I'm absolutely nailing it so far.

    I've always been great at arithmetic, but never really developed my knowledge past that.
    Turns out, now that I'm older (25) and more passionate about learning, it all seems fairly simple so far.

    I love how you're either right or wrong. There's rarely any middle ground.

    I loved it when I was a child, hated it between 12-16 years old, from 16 on I realised it's my favourite babe of all time.

    I absolute love maths, only reason I didn't pursue it as career is because I didn't want that to ruin my love for it haha

    I think its just because of the way the fundamentals never change, I'm still using stuff I learnt in year 8 haha and that satisfaction of getting the right answer using a totally inefficient method no other subject can give you that lol
    Could I ask what are you doing? What's your career/job?
