Most communication majors have no patience for math–I certainly don’t. It was only in 5th grade when I really enjoyed math, and it was only because I understood it (thanks to the best math teacher ever). Anyway, now that I’m in grad school and I have subjects like accounting, financial management, and quantitative methods in business, my feud with math has started all over again. I rounded up this list that some of you may be able to relate to:
1. When you understand the word problems, but you don’t know how to compute for the answer.
“I know what is being asked for, but how do you compute for it?” Then you have classmates who are accounting majors–they KNOW all the formulas, but they don’t understand the context of the problem. Can we be groupmates please?
