Doing sodoku gives me some small closure to that
You didn't go to school in north London by any chance?

My maths teacher was like that. In the end I just gave up and couldn't wait to leave school and go to work. Problem was with that I then couldn't complete any homework so was caned every time for not doing it! At least I found a good use for my maths exercise books.

One day that maths teacher went to his car at lunchtime only to find someone had smashed all the windows Karma!

No, it wasn't me but he was like he was with anyone who simply did not understand and couldn't keep up, no time for them just the ones who excelled!

What was so frustrating for me was I loved learning and I could get the maths answers no problem but could not show or explain my working out on paper which he insisted on. He knew I could do it but his riddicule and ruler smacking my hands which obvious caused much laughter from others in the class meant a nightmare for me so maths became 'shut down' time.

What makes me grin is I know where every penny comes and goes and can add up quicker than any bank manager.

Re: Sudoku

I think you can either be good at words or numbers, not both.

I'm going to keep trying though.

I could do geometry and binary, one is arty the other has patterns which I'm quite good at spotting. Probably why I find so many multi-leaved clovers, they stand out.

It's odd that my 1st wasband was a brilliant artist and mathematician, you wouldn't think that would go together.

I think I have some kind of number blindness, never been good at maths. It was a huge stress for me at school and only learned how to do percentages and stuff at work.

Any easy to understand tips would be welcome.
I could never work out how to do it so gave it up as a bad job, anything maths related and I might as well forget it, I'm crap at maths
