    OMG This video is so great. When I was in elementary school and they put me in remediation math, my mom took me out of the school, put me in tutoring, and I went to another school where I became stellar at algebra and eventually took AP Statistics and Geometry in high school. I feel like I actually lost interest in college- it wasn't required at my school since I had already gotten AP credits. I think it should definitely be a continuing part of education, with or without AP credits. It makes you think differently about how things work!

    Yes this is very true media and movies is curving the young minds in viewing math, they don't notice it yet but slowly they molding the mind of the children on how hard and tough is math. Math like others subject have the same level of study, it's up to students on how they going to understand and study hard in each subject.

    I can't remember exactly, but my mom was either good at math in school and ended up with a bad teacher once, or says she wasn't good at math and credits a good teacher. It's hard to say, but my math grades varied from year to year and from teacher to teacher. I'm sure it applies to other subjects. Maybe if I'd had my amazing English teacher for Social Studies, I'd have enjoyed it and received better grades. I do think if there's a social acceptance of being poor at it or not a "math type" then we feel no responsibility to fix the situation, either personally or in educational institutions.

      We need Spielberg to create some sort of pledge--if you want to work in this town, you can't diss math. :)
