    Good Morning Mikey, when I was in school, I never had Algebra (you are right what the heck X+Y=Z; really!!) In school it was basic math and business math; I was pretty good at math but hated fractions. I will be 52 in May, I love learning new patterns whether they are easy, advanced, intermediate, and experienced. I love the challenge it keeps me focused and stimulates my brain and the power to stay motivated. It does get frustrating at times and yes I have put some WIPS in a bag hidden away until I am ready to try again. I’m not the best at crocheting nor am I fast; but I know I will create to the best of my ability and never stop learning. Thank you so much for everything you and your team do for The Crochet Crowd Community.

    Wow Mikey… You’ve hit the nail well and truly on the head here regarding learning!

    I’m a high school science teacher, speciality is chemistry, I HATE maths, it confuses me and gets me all het up, especially when my students get to the answers quicker than me (;-))

    One thing I’ve learnt myself though is that students need something tangible and real to them to help the understanding. For example when trying to explain quantitative chemistry, reacting ratios and balancing equations using cheeseburgers and Oreos as examples really made a difference!

    Mikey keep up the great work you are AWESOME and don’t doubt yourself!

    I hate word problems, if Jonny had 5 apples and Susie had 8 oranges how many pears did Kenny have? I could care less. I love science and physics and the word problems then didn’t bother me then because science was a class I was very good at. English as far as reading and reports I didn’t fair well. I have a good vocabulary, but poor at spelling. Comprehending old works like Shakespeare pained me. I just had the hardest time with it. At the same time I could read college level books mostly science fiction. The ability was there but it had to interest me. Same as you with math. I learn different subjects different ways. I do have a learning disability, the renamed it, I wish I knew what it is called now, so I can arm myself when I go to college for the first time. Even with learning difficulties I love to learn new things/skills.

    My dear Mikey! I barely made passing grades in math at school. I still hate math. Even though I love crochet I still want a pattern that gives me specific stitch counts, tells me just how much yarn I’ll need, etc. I want to crochet, not all that meticulous stuff, ya know. That’s one reason I appreciate you and the Crochet Crowd so much. You’re such a good teacher & your passion for yarn is contagious for your students. I’m 54 & since finding your Youtube video, & joining the CC, I’ve been inspired to crochet more complicated pieces than I ever would with a pattern alone.
