I was never too good at math, but I still kind of liked studying it because there was always a definitive answer to whatever problem you were solving. The math discipline I excelled the most at was geometry because it was so visually oriented and it actually involved some words (does anyone remember postulates and theorems? Words and math blended together!)
New Math by Craig Damrauer really excited the supernerd within the Modern Gal by doing word math out of concepts. They're like mindbenders.
For example: Sanity = Everyone else's crazy / Mine
And don't forget Indexed, an old favorite with a similar concept.
