I really envy all those gifted Maths Geniuses out there. I learned from an early age I was Number Dyslexic. Not that I could convey that fact to my Elders though!!! My Teachers despaired of me. English was a breeze but Arithmetic was a foreign language to me. Don't get me wrong I can do the basics add, subtract and simple division. Its when they started to put a story to the equations that all the problems would begin. For example. Four men dig a hole it takes them six hours between them. How long would it take six men? I was suddenly transported to another world watching these six men digging a hole and and observing what colour their spades were and such!!! "Mag-rose! Stop gazing out of the window girl! My poor Teacher would bellow. That would be the cue for the class swot to reach his hand in the air. "Miss Miss! I know the answer. I would heave a sigh of relief as she left me alone. I watched dejectedly as he proceeded to enthrall the Class with his grasp of Calc. I don't know where he is today probably a Nuclear Physicist at Cern!
Anyway Pythagoras rules! :)
