I have always made the comment that I hate math. But I have to admit that I haven’t always hated math. I remember learning geometry, and loving it. The reaon is because I understood it. I’m not sure what was so different about geometry that made it comprehendable to me. I just got it. I wish that I had that same experience with algebra. I can’t make heads or tails with algebra. I hope that I find that missing link that keeps me from understnding algebra. I think that if I can conquer algebra then maybe other math will fall in place. -J. Morin

Really lovely point — I’ve talked to a lot of people that hated about math the fact that it was incomprehensible, and when it was explained to their satisfaction, is was much better
