Scarier Than Math?

Math & Stuff

Jan 04

When I was still studying, my mother warned me about the ghosts in our school, but not about mathematics, which I personally find more horrifying.

As I progressed through the grades, my dread of math deepened. I dreaded them all, from adding apples and oranges in first grade to calculating the earth's distance from the sun in middle school.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. My question is who, aside from mathematicians, doesn't despise math? Perhaps my elementary school math teacher?

In fact, in 2005, Gallup conducted a survey in which students were asked to name the most difficult school subject. Mathematics, unsurprisingly, ranked first on the difficulty scale.

So, If you fear math, know that a lot of people feel the same way! Luckily, there are people like the tutors at Cammon Tutoring that value patience to help you overcome any math anxiety you have!
