Why do many students dislike mathematics?

Were you an active participant in your maths class or passive? Did you prefer to sit at the back of the classroom?Mathematics! It has been my most favorite subject after history!

Personally I have never sat in the front row all my life... I certainly believe in the philosophy that back benchers are great beings

Most of my friends dislike maths and are weak at it or they dislike it yet,, have to study it..

I have never hated it... I love it

Some reasons I have come across for people hating maths are

1. It's too complex ( I don't think so )

2. I wish I could just mug it up ( Temme... is understanding not better than mugging)

3. I can't figure out what to put where ( that is just because you wer sleeping when the basics were being taught)

4. There is nothing realistic about it... no one can buy bananas using the square method or pythagoras theorum ( look closely pal.... the mesaurements of the couch you sit in are taken by math knowing people.... even the amount of cheese and sodium glutamate in your Chicken Mcgrill Burger is measured)

That' it ... If I write more,,, i think i may be flagged No offences to any oneI think people don't like Maths because they can't relate to it or need to use it in real life situations. Beyond the basics of percentages, adding, subtracting, etc, most people don't ever need to make use the many formulas and techniques.

I personally liked Maths when i was younger but as I progressed through school I became more passive and didn't enjoy it all because I felt I was learning stuff that was not very interesting and I would never use again after school.I had one advanced Algebra explain to me that most of the math tought in universities was to build critical thinking skills. Many people are reactive thinkers and have not been properly trained in critical thought.
