Fun With Math



When asked what my favorite subject was in school, you would never have gotten Math as an answer.  I had a love-and-hate relationship with mathematics. There were math subjects where I barely passed and there were those where I did very well, where –dare I say it? –I absolutely enjoyed myself.  One of my favorite math subjects was Geometry.  Of all, I had the most fun with that.  

J loves math and I thought that he might enjoy doing some geometry with me.  So far, so good.  I get to re-discover and re-learn and it’s coming back to me –how much fun I had with geometry.

Hi! I am popping over from Tamar's blog...you can have ALL the math. Oh how I can't take it!! I worked in finance for 11 years and was known to count on my fingers under the table because I can't do math in my head. Thank goodness for calculators and software! :)

what a fun way to spend time together!

Geometry - oy! probably one of my least favorite maths, but then all maths ran a close race in the 'ugh!' subject category for me. English, history, sociology/psychology were probably my favorites. Great way to reconnect with something you enjoyed by sharing that with your child. (I tried to turn a happy spin on math with my kids, but they were of like mind to me when it came to the subject).

I never had a favorite math subject. It was all hard for me and geometry was the worst of the lot. Glad you and your boy are enjoying it though.

Hi!
Great shot. I hated math when I was in school. Didn't quite get the concept of fractions.
Have a great day!

My lazy streak and math did not mix well....always preferred subjects where you could make things up just a little bit as you went along...cough, cough. That said, I had pretty intense parents with high expectations, so had to find a way to make the grades! My geometry teacher was INSANE - a fifty-something lady that climbed on her desk, thrived on pop quizzes and had {seemingly} magical ways of keeping us entertained. So...I'll give a nod to geometry as a favorite math subject thanks to her!

I'm no math whiz either, but geometry was somewhat easier. Curious whether you struggled with Algebra? I've hear that those who are good at Algebra struggle with geometry and vice versa. Except those rare whiz kids. I'm learning more as a homeschool mom, math wise, that I probably did in school. I was just so scared of math back then.

This Ozark Farm Chick can surprise many when I confess I'm a math science kinda gal!

Your kiddos are growin' my dear. My Geek Son turned 40 and my baby girl, Social Butterfly is 37....How the heck does that happen??? Heeehehehe

Have yourself on gloriously blessed and beautiful week, Hon! :o)

@Kim - I was fine with Algebra. What I struggled with were Calculus and Trigonometry. To this day, I still cannot see the relevance of sine, cosine, tangent, etc. to every day life.

Good to see some equations in a photos in your blog.
My favorite in high school was Trigonometry, but I haven't used it in a million years.
Now-a-days, on a good day, I do some algebra or some definite integrals. Happens once in say 3 years or so :)
Have a Beautiful Week!
Peace :)

I took math throughout high school, but did not do well in it. That was okay. I had fun trying to solve the unknowns.

Ugh! I never enjoyed math at all - it always made me feel rather dense. I use it daily in my job now, but it's almost as though it snuck up on me & I didn't realize it was math until I was well into the profession!
