    I just saw a news clip about a high school teacher that uses rhyming/rap to help teach math - in the clip she was helping her students understand an algebra problem using rhyme. According to her students it made it a lot  easier to understand and it was fun. Cheers!

    Good question. I didn't teach it, but I really liked learning it. It was fun. I think it is in the genes.

    Clean the house by deducing the mess down to the lowest denominator. Quite satisfying really.

    Hello there Nom de Plume.
    Find something in which you are interested where math can be practically applied.
    When I was young I  hated math, just didn't have a feel for it. My first time where math became an asset was while I was learning music and how to break down playing in odd meters, learning to use numbers to guide me. This was simple but it was the first time numbers made real sense and how helpful it was to my playing. Next was Architecture. I had to learn math that had always seemed un-useful to me, it made sense to me in what I was trying to achieve, math became useful, and it was  much easier to learn. I had a real application for it and I had a passion for that thing.

    I can only speak for me.  I need time and a good teacher and I am on my way.

    When I was in fifth grade I spent an afternoon planning a box. I had to measure boards and figure out where to put the nails on the sides so they would go into the center of the bottom board, considering that the bottom board was invisible from the side. 

    The public school didn't try to teach fractions until sixth grade, but I was already a master by that time. Just because one day I got a ruler in my hand.
