I hope the majority of people here are going to college or planning on going to college.

I'm hoping to, but at the moment I lack the money and transportation necessary. I'm hoping to take up either animation or video game design.

Well, after seeing your music videos, you seem good at animation.

I plan on majoring in mathematics. Mainly chaos theory and fractal geometry.

My advice would be to video conference with me. I am excellent in mathematics, and have recently taught myself some basics of calculus.

I'm studying history and Anglistics / Americanistics (English and American language and culture) at the university and thereby I made hobbies a profession. As for mathematics I really suck at anything when I don't see the practical purpose of it. My Dad loves math, studied it, and I dare say that it was for the private lessons he gave me that I managed not to fail in mathematics in the senior grade at school. I didn't inherit my father's love for math.

I was always naturally good at math. As of now, the only topic in mathematics that I have ever had trouble with is differential equations.

I am at the end of my college years hopefully for good. :)  Right now I'm only a year away from my Masters (6 year degree) in Special Education.  I already have a an Associate of Science in Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, and a Bachelor of Science in Adolescent Education.  I'm certified to teach social studies and history to students in grades 7-12.  I plan to get certified in special education as well.  Right now I work as a classroom paraprofessional by day, and take my three courses per semester by night.

My mom teaches special education.

I have given her help. She wouldn't be half as good as she is now if it weren't for me.

Depending on how you see it, education is more about practice, than it is about theory.  Most of my bachelor's was on theory. >.<  You can speculate forever...just try the damn thing and see what happens sometimes.

I've given her practice on how to be strict.

I help her with her lesson plans and tutoring sometimes. I am good at breaking down difficult concepts into simple pieces.

I don't like math because it gives me a headache and I can't understand it that well. I almost didn't graduate from high school because of math.

Ah, well. I guess I'll just have to live with the fact that not enough people are interested math.

I'm sorry. I just can't really be interested in something I am not able to understand.

You may not understand the mathematics behind them (I sure don't), but you should look up fractals on google, msn, or yahoo image search. Or whatever search engine you use.
