Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
Can someone please explain a unit circle to me? We rushed through it because we had spent too much time on quadratic functions this year and I have no idea how on earth radians relate to degrees except it has something to do with the unit circle and 2 pi equaling 360.

Im studyin for a maths test right now,and if i dont pass ill have to spend the summer studying for the repeat in august what i really dont get is trigonometry especially trigonometric integrals,if i could just get the hang of that id be fine.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
I really don't get trigonometry,its soo hard but i think i'm all right at algebra

#25




Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
See I actually get Geometry and Trig. Probably because it relates and I can see patterns. It's the same with graphing. Solving by graphing makes more sense to me then solving algebraically.

The real question is "What do i get in math class?"
No, I'm just kidding. I really really really hate math, but surprisingly I'm good at it!

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
Why you have to show your work if you can just look and do it in your head. It take three times as much time.
And Ginnypotter you chose the correct answer it's just common sense meant to throw you off don't worry.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
Me and math don't get along great.
I'm not bad at it. On the contrary I'm quite good at it. Except it's the most boring thing ever. So I never put much effort forth to learning. Once I do though, I do fine. I have to admit, I hate finance. Doing Mortgages and loans and compound interest drives me nuts.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
Every little equation is hard for me. T_T I'm mathly retarded.
The only thing I CAN get in math class is a low grade.

As for the whole math subject..I suck at it..I am in 10th grade now[haven't started yet] and the only reason I am not getting held back probably is cus the school I am going to..I failed math last year...I tired really really hard to..I just don't get it...along with that we have this really stupid sub that came every tuesday and thrusday and he confused the heck out of me...he does NOT know when to shut up!!!! I would finaly understand something..but then he would go on and on and then I would be like what? and he talked really fast ....as for my other math teacher HE IS THE GREATEST but he is also princable, so he got to busy and they had to bring "that" in he would explain things that I never got before and I'd get them in like a second..and he didn't over do it Anyway rant over..I just hope they don't bring the annoyance back[it's what I call him ] cus I plan on trying my best at math this year and I know I can't with him teaching

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
ugh, math sucks seriously.
just wanted to say next year imma be a Junior. and im only in Geometry. i had to take algebra I like 3 years in a row. and ive been told, and i figured out. that if your good at algebra you will most likely suck at Geometry. and if you suck at geometry your good at Algebra. so next year. is gunna suck worse. blah.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
But I love math... I'm taking AP Calculus this year.
If you ask me, the only class that needs to die a very slow and painful death is English class. I love reading, but all the questions like "What do you think the box of tissue symbolizes?" really annoy me. It's clearly asking for an opinion, yet I still get those questions wrong.

I do not understand you people You'd love my school then, we don't have a english class..we read for 45 minutes and the end of the school day..and fill out are logs about what we think of what we just read....[some kids are still unable to do this even if they have gone to that school the 3 years its been open, they just say the plot of the book I on the other hand was finished with them a full 2 or 3 weeks before school was over which made me able to pass History] oh and we get the rest of are essay credit by putting essays into history projects and science projects... And I do get what you mean on the whole question thing...I failed something for reading cus I felt that the questions were more of a matter of opinion rather then fact...then I ended up in a stupid reading class

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
I hate math, but maybe that's because my teacher this past year didn't really teach, dang it.
I now know how to complete the square like the freaking back of my hand, but English does not need to die. I had a phenomenal teacher for English Literature and Composition AP, and I got 4's on both of the exams because of her. English rox, math sucks.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
I'm taking AP Calculus the coming school year as a 10th grader so needless to say, I'm lucky to be blessed with a talent in math. I do understand how people have a hard time understanding it. I've already given up explaining how I solve things to other people. I think math and English are similar because like how people see symbols in text differently in English, people interpret methods in different ways. It's kind of complicated and I bet few people will understand what I just said.
I do have a problem remembering the equations for conics....

I have always asumed it is graphs I just skiped that boring stuff that was in my packet[we got a packtet that had to get finished and stuff...cus my school is to poor to get enough books] I was like to my stupid math teacher..I don't see the point, what is the point?? I am not going to become someone that needs this kind of math..then he's like Ashley don't say that to me..I am like what?? it's what I think!!!!!!

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
For several reasons, I hate math. It drives me insane because my teacher has a tendency of putting stuff on quizzes, exams and tests that we haven't been thought and the stuff he actually teaches us he doesn't explain.

Re: Things You Just Don't Get In Math Class
I find math fun. I used to hate it. Just get a tutor for a year.
