A Very Simple Poll

Shawn, at Think Thank Thunk,  is doing a poll. I think getting results separately for different groups would be helpful and I'd really like to see these results, so I've replicated his poll here.

Please vote. Thanks!

(And if you'd like to set up the same poll question on your blog, it only takes about 5 minutes to set up a free account at, write the poll, and embed the code in a blog post.)


  1. Where is the "other" option? !!

    I'm expecting to learn to like it :)

  2. Good for you!

    I'm sure you know that if we put an in between option, too many votes would go for that. Of course this poll is terribly biased because of where it's sitting.

  3. The results are 74 yes to 15 no on June 9. Laura Grace Weldon has asked her readers to come her. If they do, maybe the balance will shift now.

  4. Yep, my "other" would be "sometimes yes; sometimes no". Truly, my gut response is "who's asking?". Since it's on Math Mama's site, I think, "hmmm, yes, I think I like Math Mama's math." But then the years of indoctrination and sour experiences still rise to the surface and I have to settle on, "no" because I don't like that word, "math".

  5. Aww shucks, SPC, I'm blushing.

    Do you wish you liked math more? Is there anything particular you'd like me to write about?

    It's the people who've had bad math experiences that I'm most interested in reaching out to.

    Your response makes me want to bring my polydrons over to your house to play with.
