If you’d like more mental maths fun, please read this thread

When I was in year 8 Mr Cushen made me stand up in front of the whole year and went on about how great I was at maths. From this point on I did not develop any further in maths and ended up with very underwhelming grades as a result. (I recounted this story to a colleague on Friday who was growing impatient with my inability to work Excel properly (or do basic counting))

That’s a classic teaching misstep and if you don’t mind me saying, very typical of Mr Cushen.

@imaperv how good are you at the numbers rounds? Obviously very fucking good that’s a stupid question, but do you and fellow countdowners resent the numbers because you love letters so much, or is it a welcome change? Are there any mega good letters players who just can’t do numbers, or generally if you’re good at one you’re good at the other?

I almost always get the numbers round but if I get a 6 on the letters rounds I’m delighted. Letters rounds make me feel really thick.
