Remember, you don't have to be stereotypically "good at math" to appreciate the beauty of mathematics.

I was always good at computations and information absorption n had to reassess how I learn and approach math in my math major. It is useful, just like neat handwriting and good note taking skills are but the more important skills are communication w classmates, doing the exercises to really let the material sink in, and taking the time to consider each statement - even obvious and seemingly trivial ideas - fully. Super rewarding for how it teaches you to become a more thoughtful person, at least in its own way. There other ways to be thoughtful, too.

Right, just like how you don't need to be good at painting to enjoy art.

When people say "good" or "bad" at maths, they usually mean arithmetic, not maths. Which is absurd when you think about it. It's like equating spelling with literature.

You can appreciate (and write) good literature even if you're bad at spelling; similarly, you can appreciate (and create) advanced maths even if you're bad at arithmetic.

Never been super good at pure math but I love the discrete math/applied cryptography stuff I've learned in computer science. It's a very neat part of being a software engineer.

I have a BS in Mathematics and still use my fingers to do basic math, haha.

Im also neurodivergent and had to study 2x mor Ethan my neurotypical peers. It’s not about how fast you can do something - it’s about problem solving.

That's a great point. I'm fascinated by it, but terrible at applying it. My son is a fantastic artist and brilliant at maths, the correlation is there
