eww i hate decision
it IS fake maths
I'd probably go for the same three. I understand the usefulness of statistics but I've never been very good / interested in it.
I'm in 2nd year uni now and luckily, I don't have to do any of them.
Stats is a sad state of affairs for me. I scraped an A with no understanding whatsoever.
Radians. Don't know where to start with it.
Mechanics (Newtonian). I quite like fluid mechanics though....
Also, Euclidean geometry I find dull.
statistics, generally i just dont understand why i want to use different measures of spread, and analyse lots of things, however im sure its useful to many people...
i prefer the core and further pure stuff ive seen really, mechanics isnt half bad either
Sequences and series! Not particularly hard but so dull...
Completing the square.
Pretty much all algebra.
Group theory and similar deviancies. Most things that involve proof. Most pure things.
Statistics, because nobodies ever proved to me why summing the differences between individual values and the mean and then dividing by the number by the sample etc etc etc tells you that you can expect upto a 3.2% variation!!! I mean it just sounds like someone said hmmmm we'll divide this by that to pretend it evens it out... seriously, explanation?
I have rather a lot more respect for statistics since coming to university - it's not really the pile of ***** it's made out to be at A-level. Sadly, decision maths still is the same pile of *****. Mechanics I used to like but now that I've learnt all I can learn about balls rolling and slipping down hills it's moving horribly quickly in the direction of fluid mechanics, quantum mechanics, and that sort of (much harder) stuff.
Analysis I quite like. Group theory too.
Anything with a comparatively high frequency of numbers or words is likely to antagonize me.
