Algebra! Calculus! Geometry! Arithmetic! How can we even begin to describe these unspeakable horrors, guaranteed to strike fear, anxiety, nausea, [[ParanoiaFuel paranoia]], [[GoMadFromtheRevelation madness]], and [[HeroicBSOD paralysis]] into the hearts and souls of all? Mathematics, most of all the advanced courses that delve in otherworldly chaotic theories, easily presents itself as torturous, [[MindScrew mindscrewy]], or just downright [[MindRape mind-rapingly]] [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow Lovecraftian]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': Star really doesn't like Miss Skullnick's math class, but in "Mathmagic" her stubborn refusal to try and solve a math problem [[SpaceWhaleAesop nearly causes a catastrophic]] TemporalParadox.

* The edutainment short ''WesternAnimation/DonaldDuckInMathmagicLand'' plays this straight at the beginning, when Donald insists that math is for "eggheads". The Spirit of Adventure manages to convince him otherwise... by showing him how he can use it to shoot pool.

** A continuity error since, way back in the original ''Dragon Ball'', Master Roshi taught Goku how to count, and he had no such problem when the MC asked his age in the first Martial Arts Tournament he took part (he thought he was 14, but he learned he was 12 when he learned to count).

** Its also worth keeping in mind that the one of the primary motivations for developing new mathematics is to avoid either doing some other math that is much harder or to avoid going through lots of tedious arithmetic. A simple example is that knowing how to multiply means not having to do lots of addition.

* Several arcs of ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' showed Sally struggling with the "new math" and driving both Charlie Brown and Linus up the wall as they tried tutoring her. Peppermint Patty doesn't like it either, although the problems asked in her class are often hard ones that grade school students wouldn't be studying. (Ironically, she really hated learning the metric system, something Schulz seemed to [[HillariousInHindsight believe the United States would eventually adapt.]])

* One talking {{Franchise/Barbie}} doll would say, "Math class is hard!" The phrase was later removed due to controversy: it seems that the MoralGuardians did not want to [[GirlsNeedRoleModels encourage the stereotype]] that girls suck at math.

* Mirai Asahina from ''Anime/MahoGirlsPrecure'' averts BookDumb for all subjects except for one: math. Thankfully, Riko ([[{{Deuteragonist}} her partner]]) is GoodWithNumbers and agrees to help her. Despite this, Mirai nearly falls asleep after only ''5 minutes'' of studying for a make-up exam. When Riko calls her out on it, Mirai responds that "Math is not [[CatchPhrase exciting]]".
