Maths is hard

Maths is the most infuriating subject to be ever included in the school’s curriculum. What am I even supposed to do? What is the point of asking me to find the answer when there is already a number on the other side of the equals? Since when is a number with a square root a solved answer? There are letters in maths? am I just supposed to accept that? Why do I have to leave my answer as an improper fraction? It’s like primary schools teaches you one thing and then high school comes along and goes ‘oh yeah, by the way, the rules that have been drilled into your memory for the last four years, forget it, it’s going to cost you marks and make you fail’. If only maths wasn’t so complicated, or I’d actually need to find the angle of depression the top of a cliff to a ship sailing in the water 300m away then maybe I’d actually consider doing my homework.

0_0 If you'd like I can tutor you. I'm pretty good at smart(not to patronise you/brag). But I can understand, subjects can be hard, boring and infuriating.

Don’t downvote me so quickly ;(. I’ll show you :P. I’m actually pretty good at math. I do Year 10-11 stuff all the time. Quadratics, done. Simultaneous equations? Done. Graphical Solutions, done? Trionomials, K. Three step equations, done. Algebras what’s good for me
