Favorite Subject

A poll on facebook: What is your favorite subject in school?

Arts 21%
science 20%
Literature 13%
Mathematics 27%
History 19%

Mathematics wins! Even if we look at the breakdown according to gender and age-groups, you’ll find that mathematics stays on top for both genders (ties with literature in female responses with 25% votes each for both) and in all age groups (ties with history in the 35-49 age-group with 26% votes each). 🙂

Most (or all) of the responses come from United States. I’m sure Mathematics will gain much more lead if the survey has more share of votes from the so-called developing countries and European countries.
