I always read/hear from AS individuals that we are supposed to be the best at Mathematic/math related subjects.

However this is not my case, I study economics in university and the only subject I struggle with is Mathematic.

This is due to the fact that it follows many rules and I don't like at all learning pre-fixed rules. I'm really not managing to pass my degree just due to math, I tend to learn it in a "mechanical way" where I learn how to do that but I don't really understand what I am doing or the purpose of it.

Is there any other individual with AS who just can't stand Math? am I a special case?

My favourite subjects are History, Politics and Economics (nothing math related, all the theories I like to study)

Hey there, I am good at math and I love it but I am not a super genius or savant, rather, I learned math by first learning on my own and while picking up on tactics. Math is not something that you get in one semester, in fact, I recommend taking a semester or two going over everything you learned while going in to speak with the tutors on campus.

For you, math is going to have to be done in steps as well

Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.

Other things you can do, learn about the Pomodoro learning method
