Quoting elitish:

We don't use math to communicate.


Quoting Devious333:

Some people struggle with grammar/spelling the same way I struggle with math.

 That is what makes it sad. Some people have the same block for grammar/spelling that some have for math.

There are those who will be hard to understand no matter how hard they try.

This is why parents need to step up & make sure their kid can read & write. We can't just rely on schools, we have to teach our children as well.

Sad thing is, some parents don't know how to read & write. It's not only that they struggle with it, some just never learned.

Quoting Devious333:

I am fine with anything below algebra. Some algebra I can do but for some reason I really struggle with most of it.

People who make mistakes with grammar, spelling, punctuation (I'm far from perfect myself but holy commas on this site sometimes), etc., but people also have to remember how terrible our public school systems are. Kids should be doing grammar and spelling from 1st grade to 12th. A lot of kids stop in like 7th or 8th grade and I think that's one of the reasons so many people struggle with the English language.

 I struggle with math! I have some kind of block or something(it seems).

I do but I am not going to explain it. My 8 year old niece knows the difference.

Your is a possessive pronoun while You're is a contraction for you are.
