maths is short for mathematics and it sounds ree-fuckin-donkulous to imply youd say "I am going to do some mathematic" :rolleyes:

“Math” as a colloquial short form of “mathematics” first appeared in print quite a while ago, in 1847, although that “math” sported a period (“It rained so that we had a math. lesson indoors.”) and was thus clearly a simple informal abbreviation. “Math” unadorned appeared by the 1870s. “Maths” is a bit newer, first appearing in print in 1911.

looks like yr countries inferior interpretation of english is a pos fail
