To dream of studying math or trying to solve a math equation represents a difficult life situation that requires you care about positive choices, or solutions. Issues or situations that are unforgiving of mistakes or wrong choices.
A situation or desired outcome in your life that requires sacrifices, objectivity, or adherence to good habits, morals, or rational thought.
Math in a dream may also reflect a problem in your life with only one right solution. Something that may difficult to accept or that tests you a person.
Example: A woman dreamed that it was punishable by death to write down anything concerned with mathematics. In waking life she was living in Nazi Germany during Hitler’s rule. The illegal mathematics in this case may have reflected her feelings about the oppressive restrictions of the Nazi regime making her fear being caught trying to solve or discuss difficult personal problems as it may appear that she wasn’t loyal to the government.
