[Mathqa]making maths stimulating ?

is there any philiosphy or way to link maths to our lives in an esoteric way
that might make i tmore interesting to one such as myself ?

call it bad experince but i have never liked maths at all in fact i fear which
is shy i want to try and overcome it

i have looked at Tony Bunzans methods for remembering and can remember numbers
well though formulas still evade me...

my problem seems to be that i don't see the whole picture i see each formula
etc as seperate
exercise to gain brownie points in some exam that is used to get into some
college and university

maybe for some this is exciting for som,e or a necessity but ( esp with numbers
) i find this depressing and not inspiring in any way at all.

I can see that essential being an art/ english kinda of guy that my perceptions
are rather limited,
but i can also see how those perceptions are whats making me percieve maths esp
form the sort of poeple who explain it seen in such a negative way.

any suggestions would be appreciated.
