Should I say to be good in maths or to be good at maths or both are ok?

"to be good at math."

Also do not pluralize math with an 's'.

to do well in
to be good at

'Maths' with an 's' is 100% acceptable and preferred over 'math' in most English speaking Countries.

"Math" is the American abbreviation for "Mathematics". "Maths" is the British standard. Both are perfectly acceptable.

....just dont say "maths" with an 's' in the United States. It sounds ridiculous to the American ear.

LOL! @ "maths". People seriously say that?

That sounds worse than "internets".

Can you say 'physic' in America for 'physics'?

"Math" is what's said in the US, "maths" is what's said in Britain.

And no, Americans don't say "*physic".

At "British people talk funny": nice attempt at being an Internet troll. That, however, was way too obvious for it to be taken seriously. Try being more subtle next time, and maybe, just maybe, you will succeed at trolling.

<Can you say 'physic' in America for 'physics'? >
Ha ha, and do you study scien instead of science?

To my British English trained ears, 'math' sounds like someone with a lisp trying to say maths.

I think you should calm down!

I think english and american should be know as different languages , as they have very different vocabulary, pronouciation and spelling.

e.g. English (England/english speaking)

American (America/american speaking)
