    Back in my days of middle school, Algebra actually wasn’t my toughest class. It was my English class that I dreaded the most.

    I hated those books too. In fact so much, I gave them both a review: “0/10. Will NEVER read again. And will suggest otherwise if anyone asks for recommendations.”

    Geometry isn’t exactly a picnic either, and fortunately I never had to take trigonometry.

    After 7-8 years of long division, Algebra was fun. Trigonometry was not.

    When you couldn’t make the payments he would send his brother Vinnie to fit you for concrete galoshes!

    I once had a test of my maths skills for a course I was taking, it came back with poor results, and I joked to the tutor I could’ve told them that without having to do the test

    Got a BS in Math in college. Later in life i figured out that God had designed all of us with math skills in our head. No, that doesn’t mean we can do the problems. But, we do use it everyday. Every time you drive a car you use trigimonetry, calculus, queueing theory and linear programming. It’s pretty pretty cool.

    While I graduated from high school over half a century ago, I have to say that to this day I have never had to calculate the height of a flagpole from the length of its shadow. I’m sure it is a useful skill to have, but it doesn’t get the milking done.

    I’ve been out of high school over twenty years. In that time, I’ve yet to use the “valuable skill you’ll use all the time in life” that is algebra. I have regularly used the math course I took as an elective in 11th or 12th grade, a consumer math course which taught the mathematical things one actually uses in a non-mathematical career like balancing budgets, writing checks, the sort of thing one actually does use in everyday life outside a more technically/mathematically minded life. I barely use any of the math I was forced to learn beyond addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

    I seem to be an outlier here. My short term memory is horrible. Concepts, I grasp well. I was so close to failing low grade school arithmetic that my parents spent two summers pounding tables into my brain with flash cards and such. Then I went to high school and college; I got straight ’A’s in calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and all my science and engineering courses. I had to work at it, of course, but once I understood it, it stayed understood (including changes, as observations changed.)

    I shed quite a few tears over Algebra I, too. I had to take it, a requirement, and ended up doing it twice. The first teacher also taught Latin. I think sometimes she got them mixed up. The second teacher, Ms. Lee, would always talk about spanking you where the sun don’t shine. I don’t think she ever did as the district had outlawed capital punishment by that time. But, I well remember her and her anticks. Everybody loved Ms.Lee.

    Algebra I did not like. Geometry was fun, but don’t tell Jon about Calculus. That will bring him to tears, also.

    I never liked math when I was in school. I mean, I could do addition, subtraction, and multiplication just fine, but I always struggled with division, fractions, and decimals.

    One semester of Algebra 1. Then to Algebra S1, 2, 3. Once I got the concepts down it wasn’t that hard. Used it all my life since then.

    My love for math began early. In my avatar, at 3 years old, I’m helping Dad study for his PE. The original photo is clear enough that you can tell I’m working on Integrals. Yes, using a slide rule.

    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
