Let's face it; by and large math is not easy, but that's what makes it so rewarding when you conquer a problem, and reach new heights of understanding.

Look, I'm 40, I'm single, and I work in musical theater  you do the math!

In math, you're either right or you're wrong.

How can we hope to remain economically competitive in a world in which.
.. 90% of Dutch highschool students take advanced math courses and 100% of teachers in Germany have double majors, while the best we can say about our pocket of excellence is that 75% of American students have learned to critique tactfully?

I teach high school math. I sell a product to a market that doesn't want it, but is forced by law to buy it.

Students need to decide, 'All right, well, does the height matter? Does the side of it matter? Does the color of the valve matter? What matters here?'  such an underrepresented question in math curriculum.

It is this breathtaking image [of] success that motivates us and motivates kids to follow and understand rocket science: to understand the importance of physics and math and, in many ways, to have that awe at exploration of the frontiers of the unknown.

The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel.

In the early days, I often felt that I was taking a math test when we were playing. It was a profound feeling of having to prove myself.

My character, Taylor McKessie, is a little bit brighter in the math and science department than I am... okay, a lot.

What's great is that because math is such a universal language, really, our fans come in all shapes and sizes, all ages and genders and races and backgrounds and cultures.

I was horrible at science and math. I couldn't pass a test to save my life! I'm surprised that it didn't take me until I was 20 to graduate. That's why my role is so cool  Grissom is the complete opposite of me.

When you take a look at the problems our country is facing, debt is No.
1. The math is downright scary and the credit markets aren't going to keep on giving us cheap rates.

It wasn't like a Maths test where I have to strain to get it right.
I feel very close to Luna so acting her was just natural. And if I had got too nervous I'd have done terribly.

I thought, well, you might see curves there, but that's just a bone  so even if I lose weight that's not going to change anything. That's how I look. That's my shape. Do the math.

Music is not math. It's science. You keep mixing the stuff up until it blows up on you, or it becomes this incredible potion.

I think of it as a good opportunity to let, in particular, school kids know that this job and other interesting jobs in science and engineering are open to anyone who works hard in school and gets a good education and studies math and science. And that it's not just for a select group of people.

Usually, girls weren't encouraged to go to college and major in math and science. My high school calculus teacher, Ms. Paz Jensen, made math appealing and motivated me to continue studying it in college.

All I wanted to do was put together one of the best home maths systems in the world, and that's what we've done. I've loved numbers since I was two or three, and I get really excited about them. Now, I'm allowing myself to get excited about things. If you're doing it for a TV network or any major corporation, you have to put a lid on it a little.

Most of the time I liked school and got good grades.
In junior high, though, I hit a stumbling block with math  I used to come home and cry because of how frustrated I was! But after a few good teachers and a lot of perseverance, I ended up loving math and even choosing it as a major when I got to college.

One of the most amazing things about mathematics is the people who do math aren't usually interested in application, because mathematics itself is truly a beautiful art form. It's structures and patterns, and that's what we love, and that's what we get off on.

I love acting. Acting is a true love of mine, acting and math. Although they are both creative, they use very different sides of your brain. And I love both. Acting is my first love, and that's my main career, it really is.

My main concern with the condition of mathematics in high school is that there's a lot of fear involved! Math is not, generally speaking, presented in a fun way. The concepts, as I see them, are fun, and that's the way I'd like to convey them myself.

When I originally entered UCLA, I had planned to go for a film major, but I kept finding myself taking math classes for fun, 'cause I missed them from high school!

If I'm teaching girls that do love to make cookies and do love fashion  that they can use math as a part of that  you think that's me saying, come on girls you belong in the kitchen, you belong shopping? Or, do you think it's me showing them how math is part of all their life, even the part they thought it had nothing to do with?

Find your selfrespect now. Don't dumb yourselves down. Think of yourself as capable and worthy of finding a guy who is going to respect you, too. It's so important, I mean, and the confidence you get from feeling smart and tackling something like mathematics, which is a challenge, right? Math is hard.

You can be obsessed with makeup and hair products and, you know, your appearance and still be absolutely making smart life decisions and work on your smarts, develop your smarts by studying something like math. Then you'll make much better decisions on the brands of clothing that you buy or whatever it is that you want.

Math has a lot of negative stereotypes, but it can actually be fun and incredibly empowering.

Math proficiency is the gateway to a number of incredible careers that students may never have considered.

I tell students that even if they don't like math right now, they can use math as a brainsharpening tool  a tool that not only builds the foundation for a great career, but that also builds selfconfidence, no matter what they choose to do with their lives.
