    Math Courses You Dislike

    I have not met ONE INDIVIDUAL who can honestly say that he or she loves all math courses. What math course(s) do you find a bit boring and thus not very interesting?

    My least favorite was an elementary course in stats/probability. I think it's an extremely vital discipline, but I personally found the subject matter to simply be not as interesting as others.

    My least favourite is Mechanics. I don't have a strong physics background.

    I must say that I like probability far more than statistics and chart reading. Wish I had a better understanding of probability applications. For example, knowing the difference between permutation and combination in a given, fuzzy word problem. Learning to recognize if the question is a permutation or combination is crucial to a solid understanding of probability.

    For some reason, physics does not interest me as much as pure mathematics. The same can be said, as far as I am concerned, about applied mathematics. However, I must say that the physics of amusement park rides and astronomy is fascinating.
