    Nov 11, 2008, 8:40 AM - Got an A in my algebra class! :) #1

    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.

    Like I said, no big deal, but I'm pretty pleased with myself this week.

    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.

    Great job! Keep it up!
    I think all academic classes were my downfall. If it wasn't creative I wasn't good at it.

    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?!

    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.

    A squared + B squared = C squared

    pi / 4 x D squared

    pi r squared x h


    sorry

    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

    Thanks, all. Like I said, it's a minor victory, but I'll take it.

    Boomer, I'm going for a degree in Professional Aeronautics. It's sort of a management degree with an emphasis on aviation related subjects.
