Most people I know abhor everything about Mathematics and its buddies – Algebra, Geometry, Differential Equations, Calculus and anything that involves numbers. They’d rather be contemplating on paintings from art galleries and exhibits or get immersed in Pablo Neruda’s beloved poems.
But if you ask me, it is more an advantage for a person’s brain to understand few mathematical equations and be given some problems to analyze and solve, than to memorize few pages of History or Social Studies. The thing is, I am not that good with remembering words and paragraphs. I am more comfy with numbers and symbols. How about you?
