I liked algebra
I've read many comments on the Internet about how people hated algebra. That was the one math subject I really enjoyed. I've always said it was because it was letters and not numbers.
When I worked at a newspaper in the 1980s, Apple introduced a newspaper layout program called Quark. It had a blank graph page with squares on which you could lay out articles. It was the first time I saw algebra in action. It was fun moving the cursor across the screen where you could see the X and Y coordinates.
I really struggled with long division and plane geometry. I thought sophomore geometry was boring with all its theorems, not because it was difficult but because it was just constant memorization. My aversion to math meant that I never got beyond high school biology; that is, I never took chemistry. I also never took higher mathematics such as trigonometry and calculus. I believe it is genetic: my mother has mentioned a number of times that my father had to take calculus three times in college before he passed it.
