“Some myths about math”

Olivia Walch, a math grad student at the University of Michigan has produced a great comic regarding the myth that math is some inherit ability that some of gifted with and some are not, or as she puts,

And Zeus sprang forth form the heavens and said unto the people, “ok so like some of you are going to be good at math and the rest of you are going to suck and that’s just how it’s gonna be”

It is awesome! Like really awesome!! I would encourage everyone, especially those who might think they are not good at math, to talk a few minutes to read it. In fact, if you’re reading this your already mindlessly killing time on the internet so go READ IT NOW!! LIKE RIGHT NOW!!
