Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
Calculus  specifically Calculus II  I just hit a mental roadblock with it. Calc is a great math and all: it tells you so much so quickly, but I never got the hang of making it work. And I've since forgotten most of it. Maybe some day I'll sit down and figure it out. If I'm really hard up for something to do.

I would talk to an advisor about picking a math class if possible: some colleges allow alternatives like Logic in place of math, and can let you know which classes are geared towards folks just looking to fill a requirement.

I've taken Calc, Stats, and Stats for Psych. And If you say you have problems with math then you should take the lowest level course. Your advisor will be able to tell you which that is! I hope I helped

I'd have to say I really dislike Trig and Precalc. Stupid polar graphs...I'm taking Calculus in Business for my freshman year in college, and I'm a bit apprehensive about it, I'm not sure what to expect.

History of Math....I'd be bored out of my mind. I'm dreading my music history course in college, but math? I think I'd jump off a cliff first.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
I'm alright at maths, but algebra drives me crazy! Mainly because I couldn't care less what x, y or z equal! And the problems in our mathbooks are the most pointless questions in the world.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
Wait until Calculus. That is the class from hell.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
I loathe trigonometry! Thank god I gave up maths in college. I've actually forgotten everything lol. But that's fine by me, never did like the subject.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
I meant to give up math in college...but then I needed to do two semesters of calc for my major...then I decided on doing a MATH elective...it was all downhill when I realized I only needed 5 extra 400level classes to get a B.A. in math...which I now have in addition to my other degree.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
bah! i took precalc my jr. year of highschool... it was AWEFUL!!!! you had to make a B average to move on to Calc... which i didnt do... plus the only Calc level that they were offereing was AP (a college credit class) and i was NOT down with doing that even if i DID make it in.... those classes are a living nightmare!!!! so now im stuck taking "Math Analysis"... basically is PreCalc over again... but w/ a new name...
i want Geometry back... man... freshman was great... i had never taken an easier class...

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
i did:
alg 1 in 8th grade alg 2 in 9th pre calc and stats in 10th, failed stats because it's the devil geometry in 11th because i was averse to math nothing in 12th because i hated 'theory' math at that point i hope to god i need not take many maths in college in the coming years, so far, my first semester is clear of it. whew.

wow you took math in a weird order... i had to take geom before alg 2...

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
Functions are the hardest thing to get on Algabra right now. P(1)= I look at that and then read the directions again and still don't get it.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
it wasn't so much a "someone else didn't know" but more I didn't realise.
I was doing my assessment for college yesterday, answering english and maths questions. Up popped the question "25 x 36" and of course, it's not hard (to me) but I just could NOT get the answer.. I think I put 900... So, I get home, and I'm sat there, eating grapes (I add ) when I realise.. the answer's not 900.. it's 630 *bangs head against table several times* 270 difference!!! It'll serve me right if that one question cost me getting into a higher group it'll be good because I answer questions hours later, not immediately XD Last edited by Claire_13; September 6th, 2007 at 8:12 pm.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
But 25 times 36 is 900...
unless my calculator went nuts....

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
Differential Equations (waves, heat, Laplace and all the lot). I hate them, my teachers at college are horrible (they're 2, and don't speak between them, so the course is a complete chaos) and the worst is that I have to study them becasue I need them for the rest of the career.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
I'm in 11th grade now, and surprisingly enough, I love algebra.
What I curse the most is geometry, with it's sin cos formulas, have no idea how could they found the length of 'that' side and use the right formula to solve the problem. My favorite lesson now is about probability, binomial newton (spelling?), permutation, combination etc etc. The calculation isn't too hard, more to putting up logic. But I'm afraid my logic isn't a good logic for mathematics....
