I absolutely love math in every sense, especially teaching it. I enjoy number operations, algebra and discrete math the most. I have never really been a fan of statistics however, we just didn't vibe very well.

Pure Mathematics is quite simple to do,the likes of Linear Algebra are fascinating. Crispi39 to Probability and Statistics was easy!Wait till I did 2! I have never sweated so much over a unit.Thank God for Industrial Chemists,we never went beyond there!
Here's the irony,I loved Calculus.It sharpened my reasoning skills but I WOULD NEVER WANT TO EVER DO IT AGAIN!
I do however pity those who specialise in Mathematical Satistics the Most! That is self torture and you will never have a social life.

I'm very good with arithmetic, including fractions decimals, metric conversions, etc. I recently returned to college, and I need lots of math for my degree. I'd forgotten how to do algebra since I hadn't done it in twenty years, so I'm relearning it now. It's coming back to me easily and I'm kind of enjoying it. However, the thought of getting through calculus scares me. I tried it before and failed miserably, but I have no choice but to try it again if I want my degree.

Calculus is the most difficult for me. I found geometry, algebra and trigonometry rather easy as I saw a practical use for them in my areas of interest. Things like electronics and building furniture and machines.

I like algebra and I absolutely feel some hatred towards anything that regards statistics. Damn those graphics!

I always found algebra to be very easy. The hardest area of math to me was advanced calculus.
