Okay, so I can't pretend I haven't noticed that when most people hear I do math, they say, "Oh, I hate math!"  And it doesn't escape my attention that most of the students I tutor don't really like math even if they're good at it.  The fact is, most people don't think math is very important.

A student I worked with the other day said that her least favorite subject was math because she didn't like having to do problems and learn concepts that she would never use again.
