just out of curiosity... (boosts v appreciated)
'i am ___ and ___ at math'
hey what's an academically acceptable confidence interval. just wondering
hey this poll has just under a day left jsyk
@migratory yeah, i fully admit that this is incredibly reductive, but i only have so many options and character limits within those options :B
@IceWolf indeed! the character limits on poll options are just super restrictive. it felt slightly better than making the options 'gay'/'straight', but i recognize it still does a pretty bad job of capturing all of the nuances of queer identities, as would any binary!
@vagabondsun Ah OK, gotcha! I'm queer and not at all gay myself (ace, aro, and a literal wolf), so I really appreciate you making it not gay/straight myself. (:
@darckcrystale i guess it's ultimately subjective, but do you have at least a high school level of math education, and can you remember at least some the concepts it taught you? do you find it easy to count money and schedule things? if i could answer 'yes' to these questions, i would consider myself at least OK at math. purely personally speaking!
@patience woof, been there. it's wild how one person can make a difference like that for the rest of your life
@Primo my personal metric is 'can i do the math that's required of me to get by at my current life stage?' so, if you're an adult: counting change, scheduling, working out hourly rates, being able to split a bill, tips - if you can do things like that, that's my threshold for OK.
@vagabondsun i don't like saying that i'm bad at math. math is a lot of things and i'm good at some of them but a lot of it just confuses me, and i've never personally found application for most of it, in my life.
@vagabondsun queer and I'm alright at basic concepts and arithmetic (my best being geometry), but anything algebra onward was a huge struggle to pass in school
🌹 i feel like this one's a lil biased myself since it seems everyone in the fediverse is queer and a nerd lol (and i mean this in the most endeared way possible)
