Dave Finn2011-07-05http://www.thejournal.ie/profile/2123/this-true-ignores-fact-people-maths-i-humanities-50366/This is all true, but it ignores the fact that many people just do not like maths! I was one of them – did very well in the “humanities” as you might call them, but was dreadful at maths. I suspect thats the case for many people and no amount of cajoling them into doing maths will change it. Many just dont find triangles, theorems, and geometry very interesting…..

Joan Featherstone2011-07-05http://www.thejournal.ie/profile/132/i-either-am-arty-leaning-maths-leaning-never-50417/I think you either have am ‘arty’ leaning or a maths leaning, and the two never cross. I have two engineers in my house and a science related student, when they talk maths at the kitchen table, I just dont get it at all, it’s like a foreign language to me, suppose it is a language of sorts really, or I’m a thicko!
