Response to "Numbers and Words"

In the November 2013 issue of Teen Ink, Ali Schindler expresses her hate for numbers and her love for words in her article “Words and Numbers.” After reading her article, I can understand her dilemma, but I totally disagree. I love numbers, and math is my favorite subject. Although I love numbers, Ali’s writing does not surprise me because I can relate to having only one correct answer in math and having multiple ways of answering when using words. I like good organization and when a sequence of planned events goes the way it is supposed to go. While solving a math problem, the step-by-step process is what I like. I enjoy there usually being only one way to solve it; I feel satisfied when I solve it and have a definite answer. When I have to use word, I sometimes struggle; I never know if my answer or response will be considered right. There may be a countless number of ways to answer the question with words.
