    math didnt really get hard till i had to learn lagrange multipliers THOSE WERE TOUGH! I remember my asshole professor gave us this really hard question on a midterm and then just said "Well I kinda knew no one was going to get it right i just wanted to see how you guys would approach a problem like this"

It will never ever apply in my life and I wish I didnt have to take it




    This isn't meant to piss off the elite, trust me.
    I always used to believe that, regardless of it's difficulty. I've always asked myself "why am I learning this, i'll never do this after school", but then I finally realized why exactly you learn it.

    Learning advanced math (math beyond early years of high school imho) isn't supposed to really teach you directly what it does. For instance, you're right; you'll probably never have to find the derivative of a complex function in real life (key word being probably). But that isn't what you're supposed to get out of it. I think it's supposed to indirectly teach you problem solving skills that you can apply elsewhere. Those tough classes and painful formulas all teach you how to solve complex problems. That is what you're supposed to get out of it, methinks.

    I may be wrong, but it's just my take on it. I'm not a big fan of math, but can sorta understand why we learn it.

    nah, math. the state university in st peterburg would've let me dick around with probability theory and theoretical cybernetics and i would have written a crowd pleasing book about number theory.

    This is so true. Ive taken trig, stats, and now im in calculus. I probably won't use a large majority of what I learn, but I still enjoy math becuase of the way it teaches you to solve problems.

    spot on. it's an exercise. most of what you do at the gym you never need to do in real life either.

    Understanding Language. We started with the form and structure class words in excruciating detail and are now using that base to cover phrase structure and transformational grammar.

    That's what I'm banking on. Even though print journalism is going the way of the dodo.

    I just don't care. It's way too difficult and stressful for me. I'm not even in college math

    This is funny though, I had class yesterday and we had a math quiz. By the end of it I counted 22 heads. Out of those 22 there was one C, one D, and the rest Fs! He was soo mad at us

    Math is beauty. Math is purity. Math is not subject to interpretation; it is not a social construct; it just is. The rules of mathematics are the same regardless of where you are or what culture you're from or how you write it down. It's one of the core elements of being.

    I always did well in math classes, even my college ones. And I always thought of linguistics as the "math" of language. Yeah, I'm a nerd.
