My Time with Math

The Emotional Aspect of Mathematics

MathTime is looking for your very personal math-related contribution! Set free your true feelings toward math!

Mathematics. Hardly any other school subject triggers passionate feelings as this one. Empirical research shows math is as much loved and valued by some as it is hated by others. We, at MathTime, a mathematical start-up from Vienna (Austria), are digging deeper into the pure emotional experience related to this subject and making those emotions visible. We won’t shy away from the negative feelings.They are often suppressed, unspoken, and unexplored. We’ll give them light too.

The subject of your contribution?

  • your own feelings and emotions toward Math. We recognize that life isn’t black and white. Mixed feelings are expected!
  • your encounters with Math: dramatic, funny, frightening, enlightening, frustrating, triumphant, epic, romantic, tragic, comic, shameful, horrific, thrilling, fantastic, absurd, therapeutic, escapist, etc., etc., etc., in the past or in the present – and why not in the future too.

In one of the three main categories:

1. video (up to 2 min.)

2. image

  • meme
  • drawing /comic-strip (per hand or computer)
  • poster (per hand or computer)
  • (staged) photo

3. text

  • short statement or an essay (up to 500 words)
  • poem
