Yes, there are many different ways to solve math problems. Find the one that works for you!

I can manipulate numbers as well as visualize so I've done very well in math.

I don't get the benefit many get by graphing number sets as I can work with numbers directly.

I can "tune" an electronic circuit using a digital meter. Most people need a visual indication and can't process numbers to make adjustments.

I think sometimes the emphasis on teaching students lots of ways is asking for trouble. There should be one way of doing it until the students catch on in most cases. If they've got that, then adding more is fine, but so often additional ways are taught before the students have properly grasped any way of doing it.
