Math - the reason they make it detestable

That's why:

Instead of the scary "solve the problem":

"Yippee! Yippee!
Have fun finding the right answer!"

Hi Ana

What is the question or is my fear of maths still there??



Ana said...

Most of us feared math!
I used to like it but one teacher has spoiled it all.
Love sweet!

Oi Ana,
Desculpa-me, não entendi o que disseste... sobre matemática???

Ana said...

It's just the way teachers say:
"Solve the problem."
Problem is not a very encouraging word.
Like "losing" weight. It gives a feeling that the person is losing something.
Words are powerful.

Pyrs said...

And I don't seem to be able to solve any of my problems these days.

Ana said...

Me too.
Yippee! Yippee!
Let's have fun seeing them not solved!

Hope you get better Peter!

Hey, Ana. Now that we have friended each other on Blog Catalog, want to link to each other's blogs?

Ana said...

I don't know why I still had not added you to my blog list.
Just did it.
Wow! It was me who wrote "Love must conquer all" at this board you have there.
It's still there!
