    Is 'insight" correctly used?

    Hi,

    "Math was never my strongest point, I just don't have insight in math"

    Thanks

    I wouldn't use "insight" in that context; maybe "a general/basic/fundamental understanding" among other possibilities.

    And when it is used, it is usually paired with 'into', not 'in'.
