comment My sister absolutely refuses to learn math
@ittay-weiss I agree with you that the chance is low, but it's still a possibility. Reading through the question, this is the first thing that popped in my mind. It's a therapist's role to diagnose it, and it might be more common that you think it. In France our orthophonistes do handle quite a bit of them.

I never learnt the times table of 9. I was so proud I found this trick that I preferred to do the mental arithmetic. +1

comment What is mathematical research like?
You should read Théorème Vivant (Alive Theorem) by Cédric Villani, as soon as it gets translated to English (or right now if you can read French). It tells the story of a research that led to the Fields Medal, and it's fascinating.

What's all this nonsense, 1+1=1, any programmer knows that.
