Where is the hate them both option?

If I had to choose between them it would be tough it would of been Maths easily before I moved to secondary school and algebra came.

English by a mile now.

Hmm.
I'm good at Maths I guess. In the highest class. But Math takes much more effort in tests and exams and such, as for English, I just do all my assignments in the last day and I never study for exams but I'm still in the highest class.
I guess I like them both in equal length, so I voted liked them both. <3

MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH.

Argh, I hate English. :( I'm good at it, yes, but it's such a subjective course. If your teacher doesn't agree with your writing style or the opinions or ideas in your essays, you don't do as well. (It's not so much the second case if you can back up your ideas, but I still had teachers saying "well explained, but..." and taking marks off.) Plus I had a teacher once who marked everything so, so hard. What would be a 90 for any other teacher was suddenly a 75 for him. Needless to say, I more or less hated the course after that.

I love math though. Haha, I've done just as badly in Math as in English a few times, but my love for it has never diminished. :D It's just so much fun. ♥ I'm so glad I'm in university and I never have to take another English course if I don't want to, while taking all the math courses I want.

English -- it comes naturally to me and I just think it's fun. I don't dislike math, I'm just not as good at it or enjoy most of it as much. English involves reading, writing, and editing; three of my favourite things. I actually have a knack for several types of math, but have trouble getting steps in between to make things work. Like, I could get the right answer, but I will have no idea how to explain how I got it. ("It works!" "How?" "I don't know...it just fits in.")

English makes me happy. That's about all there is to it. <3

But I'm a huge spelling and grammar nerd/freak/Nazi/whatever the lingo is. If I'm friends with a person who "types lyke dis", it's cuz I was friends with them before I saw how they type. DDD:

I'm great at both, but Math is definitely better. In English you got to interpret and elaborate, but in Math there is only one clear cut answer. All you got to do is follow the rules and you get the answer. That's why Math pwns!!

Hmm not necesarily. At times there are infinitely many answers to problems, at least at the math Im doing

In which case all you have to do is prove that and give a general statement about it. It's still a pretty clear cut answer. :P

Maths, without question.

I detest the subjective nature of English beyond basic grammar and spelling; you can have a technically sound essay, but like Erica said, if your teacher disagrees with your ideas, your writing style, or some other BS reason, you get marked off, sometimes severely. With maths, however, either you're right or you're wrong, and the reasons for every outcome are quite clear.

Cherrim
December 29th, 2007, 04:23 PM
That and if your institution is into giving partial marks, even if you don't get the right answer you can get solid marks for your method. Math = ♥.

Maths. It's so much easier for me doing Maths than English and things are generally logical and straightforward.

English gets too complicated later on and essay writing is a no-no for me. It takes too long and I seriously can never get a good essay written down without spending at least an hour concentrating on what to write.

Maths problems are more challenging and therefore, more fun. xD

I like Math is more funner and better because for one, Math is my favorite thing from School and for two I would chose Math then English.

December 29th, 2007, 06:21 PM
English, most def. It's always been my best subject out of everything, and math has always been the subject I struggle with. More than half those things you learn in math you aren't gonna need in the real world..so I see no point in it. All those equations n stuff isn't relevant to me. Math is supposed to be dealing with numbers and counting, so I dont see why letters and alphabets and all that other stuff are needed. It's all just so stupid to me..whoever invented all those equations had no life and had nothing else better to do. I'm not saying math itself isn't important, because I know math is important. The only math that I would actually consider important is financial math and basic addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division. Not all that graphing scale, polygon, alphabet equation stuff. English just comes naturally to me..I was always a good speller and writer and stuff..so I guess that's why I prefer English..

(Sorry about the rant..I just HATE math >.<)

Okie sweeties, enough of that. XD Anyway, yes I do prefer Math for it's my favorite subject. I can live without knowing what a preposition but I'll go crazy if I didn't that 8A - 26 = 64. ^-^

P.S. Sweeties, those values are in hexadecimal. 83

I generally prefer English to Math, but it all depends on the teacher that you have. During the last part of the school year, I had an awesome substitute for Maths, and my English teacher was a horrible teacher throughout the whole duration of the year, so that altered my opinions on both of them. Also, in Maths I'm actually learning things now. Everything up to about last year (2006) is just revision of fractions, decimals and weight and the such that you learn in Year Two. Now that I'm learning something, it is a whole lot more fun, and now that English is moving away from fun things like Creative Writing and into studying horrible texts, I'm starting to lean towards Mathematics. I don't like doing Math-related work outside of school that much, but I love writing. It's hard to decide - I picked both.

December 29th, 2007, 09:20 PM
Math ftw!!!

What I like about math is its consistent, simple, and very easy to follow through, whatever you learned earlier, helps solve problems you learn later on, and makes much better sense as a learning curve.

Unlike English, its grammar, you have to follow and memorize certain rules for every damn little spectacle of details, as nothing follows. Writing essays can take a lot of thought and planning, and sometimes the teacher doesn't even give you the time to plan out the essay, and its has to be writen in class on the same day. Depending how anal the teacher is, is depended on you grade as well, because if you mess up once, YOU FAIL!!!

What? No history option? I love history. It's the only class that taught me how to write. D:

That said, I have always preferred English over mathematics. There's just something about me that actually prefers sitting down with a book and finding the hidden meanings and symbolism and then writing about it. I hate math because if you're wrong and don't do things the way that they are taught, then heaven have mercy. But with English, just get involved in a good debate and you're right because you're not restricted by some rule somewhere.

I guess I like English because I'm more in control of the subject, rather than being under the control of rules. Grammar is fun, by the way.

I also agree with you. I mean with math I'll be doing a problem and Im so sure I did it right I look over everything I do and....I get it wrong T.T
Then I do the problem again slower, so sure I got it right again....wrong T.T
There is an endles boundrary of what you can use in English solve a problem, math is to darn restricted D<
But I guess the way you answer this topic really has to do with you're thinking process. We all have different ways of thinking, some are good at finding hidden meanings while others are good for solving mathematical problems

Right now, I hate them both. English seems to be my weakest subject at the moment and my college calc class was hell. D< Give me German anyday. It's all the fun of English class, but in another language~

Generally, I don't mind either of them. They each have their good and bad points. You think I'd like English more automatically because I'm a writer, but I wasn't very good with deeper anyalasis. :/

*nods* Math for the win. I have to say that I've never dealt with the sort of teacher that you have (that kind of person shouldn't be teaching, anyway), but I've had worse instead. I also absolutely despise research papers for various reasons...

Math, on the other hand, actually gives direct problems to solve, which I consider to be a more valuable learning experience. Oh, and they're a whole lot of fun in the process XD. Of course, I might be a little biased...*has been called a "walking calculator" on more than one occasion*

I used to LOVE math but as I came into high school, things became harder. Now that I'm well into Geometry, I hate the subject with a passion. English, on the other hand, used to be my worst subject before I got into writing fanfiction. I haven't gotten anything below a B+ on any of my essays since the beginning of Sophomore year.

I really like both. Unfortunately, I never learn anything in English, as my grammar is generally way better than my teacher's , and the way we study texts like Romeo and Juliet is boring and sterile. :[ I'm not that great at Math, but I've come to love the subject. I get good grades in both, anyway. *shrug* I think numbers and words are both beautiful. I just dislike the subjectivity of English.

I love Math! I am good in English, but really don't like writing long research papers! Those are the worst. And you got to do what the teacher wants...sometimes the topics that they pick are so boring. I wish I could pick my own topic to write about, then I have no problem. Math for the win!

So far I got as far to Intermediate Algebra to Calculus II. I can't really grasp Calculus II yet, but I will get it(the hardest math I ever experienced). Doesn't make me hate Math. Still love it. <3<3

English by too much.

Math needs to rot and die. We don't use half of the things we learn in math later in life. Except if you have one of those great paying jobs that you need a college degree that must of us 2nd classies don't want.

Usually English but since my teacher this term has the biggest ego and is an annoying little snot who is worshipped by all by the students in the class, I find math more tolerable, even if it is 8 in the morning and the few kids in there are total idiots and do no work. But hey, the teacher is nice, likes my anime work and is from TRANSYLVANIA!
