Poll

 The votes were pretty even. But only one won. Math! Math was the winner! People chose math as their favorite by only one vote. The rankings were math, social studies, tied with science, then language arts tied with P.E. Mathematics (from Greek)  is the study of topics such as quantity numbers. There is a range of views among mathematicians and philosophers as to the exact scope and definition of mathematics

Middle-Schoolers Like Math, But P.E. More Popular, Survey Finds


Do you think most middle-school students would rather do their math homework or take out the trash? What if the choice was between those math equations and eating broccoli?
While you're puzzling over these questions (the answers aren't altogether obvious, are they?), I'll share a few other tidbits from a new survey that aims to tease out the learning preferences and habits of U.S. middle school students, with an emphasis on mathematics. These show the reasons of math being most popular.
