Make a list of the little things you hate about Maths!
Hopefully it'll be a funny thread, i'll start:

-When you wonder why your answers are wrong, then you realise you copied the question down wrong in the first place
-When you tell girls you like maths, they think you're a geek or something
-Fact that 10 divide 3 doesn't give you a nice and neat integer answer

When I can't do a question then realise there was a relatively simple trick I knew how to do to answer it

Graphs are just tedious, they don't usually help anyway.

I beg to differ, i've found graphs and diagrams very useful.

-The way you seem to put a plus when you mean a minus many more times than you put a minus when you mean a plus, very annoying considering how easy it is to change a minus to a plus.

Perhaps, it's subjective anyway.

Nonono, I will disagree there, stats is fine. Drawing graphs is the main pain.

I actually can't get enough of boys that like maths! Maybe I should get a life.

I haaaaaaaaate graphs and whenever I square root something I forget to put the plus/minus sign in front of it which means that essentially you lose half of the available marks!

I hated graphs and statistics, but I loved everything else. Even the confusion, the endless past papers, not being able to do the first question in the exercise that everyone else sailed through, but then being able to do all of the hard exercise easily (I never got why this always happened to me). I loved maths so much.

When people tell me they like maths, I do think they're a geek (because you can't truly like maths and not be a little bit geeky, come on! :P), but that's ok because I like maths and I like geeks.
