It doesn't matter so much if I "like" math or not. It's kind of like asking if I like gravity. The laws (if that's what they call) that math represent via equations and such simply are.
Of course, I'm being annoying : )
You're asking more what people think about solving math problems, I suppose. I don't care for it, myself, in that much of the math a person if forced to learn in school is not practical. Personally, I don't like solving equations and such that don't have stories behind them. The solving of general algebra problems is tedious and dull, and most people forget how to do it as soon as they're out of school because such knowledge doesn't get used (and therefore practiced) much. It's forced on people because being able to solve them proves that the schools are making kids "smarter" because math problems have TRUE/FALSE type answers. They are easy to grade and compare with other countries and states. How exactly can you compare the quality of essays across the board?
I'm not math-bashing...without the right people knowing the right math we'd all be in a world of hurt. I'm just saying that personally, the advanced practice of math is about as fun and useful to me as an acid-based hemorrhoid creme.
