    Maths vs. English

    What do you prefer and why?

    Myself, I can't stand maths, I never have and I never will. I'm not doing maths for my HSC. But I am doing 4 units of english.

    I love english because you actually have to think about things yourself and apply what you believe to them. There's also the creativity thing. I love EE2 because there's so much freedom, it's the best!

    Maths is set in concrete, it's black or it's white, it's right or wrong. I was also terrible at it for the years that I was doing it at school. I hate it...

    But what does everyone else think?

    Do we have to use greater than signs? It's bringing back horrible mathematical memories.

    I like history too, I'm doing anc and mod and ext. But I think I like ext the best

    The use of greater than or less than signs proves that maths is superior to english.

    Re: Maths vs. English

    Prove that maths > english given that maths > 0, english < 0

    LHS = maths
    > 0
    RHS = English
    < 0
    Therefore maths > english

    because prior to year 11 i hated english SO MUCH. i changed schools and ending up choosing standard because of that. i then got the best teacher which made me develop great interest in it. i practically had no english skills AT ALL before this and i can say i seriously didn't know anything (how techniques convey meaning, how to even write an essay etc ..) but throughout last year i learnt everything that i missed out on in my schooling years =p

    i was considering to go up after year 11 but i decided not to because i still have big flaws in my writing and interpreting skills. also the fact that i have a good rank at the moment and i know that if i actually went up i wouldn't be able to sustain one ..

    Re: Maths vs. English

    I figure society needs both the maths and english people, so why place importance over one or the other? I'd never rip into maths because I don't know anything about it, and I'm sure it does get interesting, especially at the higher levels.

    However, I do prefer english. But that says much more about me than either subject!
