Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Hi guys,
Probably not a huge deal for a lot of you, but math and I have never gotten along. . . ever.
I've recently restarted my pursuit of a degree through Embry Riddle University and finally quit stalling and took algebra/trig this term.
The term ended on Nov 6th and I just found out I got an A! That's the first A I've ever gotten in a math class. :D
Like I said, no big deal, but I'm pretty pleased with myself this week. :cheers

People dislike me, because I am extremely good at math, having gone through both AP calc classes in high school...and never stressing about anything math related. Anything from calculating area and volume on the spot or calculating the tip in my head while everyone else is on their cell phones....
This led people to believe I was smart, when in reality I am only good at Math and English and maybe some other subjects with both of those...like chemistry or physics.
Anything else I never get better than a B. My GPA my first semesters in college was only 3.0 simply because my English grades held up my other courses and balanced them out....i didn't have to take any math either having tested out of it so I couldn't let that float me either.
SO i understand your pain having trouble in a subject, and I'm glad you're doing so well.
Keep it up.

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Great job! Keep it up!
I think all academic classes were my downfall. If it wasn't creative I wasn't good at it.

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Well done and a many congratulations to ye :thumbsup:cheers
Not a friend of math stuff either, I'm hoping I need to do anything maths
related when I start college.
Keep up the hard work :thumbsup

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Congratulations, now go celebrate with some ice cream.

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
yeah well... a few years ago... everything was all good you know... some ceratopsians eating from lush ferns and some flowers started to show their first glance...
and then someone had to come up with maths...
that's just insane... good job mate!!! I can relate to the number problem... who invented those anyway... argh... seriously, we could have done with C*PO and R*D*, who knows the difference?!

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
An A is math is something I've never seen before, haha, congrats!

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Great job!! I finished my degree 4 years ago at the age of 33 and had to hire my 16 year old cousin to tutor my stupid donkey through 2 algebra classes so I could graduate.:facepalm

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
A squared + B squared = C squared
pi / 4 x D squared
pi r squared x h
sorry ;)

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Congratulations on overcoming your fear of math. It wasn't easy, but I hope you will continue in your studies.
There are only three things you need to do to pass math:
1. Do your homework
2. Do your homework
3. Do your homework

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
No BIG DEAL????
Brother, I have two BA's and a Masters. I had to get BS degrees so that I could avoid the classes you just aced!!! YOu are the man brother! Which program are you doing?

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Thanks, all. Like I said, it's a minor victory, but I'll take it. :D
Boomer, I'm going for a degree in Professional Aeronautics. It's sort of a management degree with an emphasis on aviation related subjects.

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Congrats Eric!! as an Aerospace Machinist, i use math all and everyday in what i do. I used to hate it too until I bought a calculator :lol

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Way to go Eric!!! You should be proud of getting an "A" in any math. Being an electrical engineer, I feel your pain( calc IV and Physics IV!!! Keep er' going bro..

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Congrats bro!!
I'm in the same boat as you! I struggle to get by, but when I do it sure feels great!!

Re: Got an A in my algebra class! :)
Math is great because it is philosophy :cheers
