Square roots, Inequalities, and Polynomials...OH MY!!!

I am not sure how it happened.

I remember signing up for my fall classes.

I remember my advisor saying that I needed another math.

I just don't remember agreeing.

It must have been a moment of weakness.

Or desperation.

You see... I don't do math.

Let alone Algebra.

I stinketh at the Algebra.

Give me a book to read.

Give me a sentence to diagram.

But, please oh please...don't give me an algebraic equation.

Did I mention that am not so good at the Algebra?

Anyhoo...I bought my book and began to think way back to a time I knew how to solve an equation.

Way. back.

20 years back.

I thought and thought, but it didn't help.

I tried to work out problems, but that didn't work either.

So I closed my eyes, said a prayer and took my first quiz.

What happened?

I am so glad you asked.

I (insert word that rhymes with mailed) it.

And I did what any good student would do.

I cried.

I composed an email (or ten) to my professor to drop the class.

And I called my Dad.

My wise father suggested I stop whining grow up get a tutor.

So I did.

I think my tutor is blown away by my mathematical skills.

Or lack of.

She mentioned during our first session that I had really nice handwriting.

She also said my College Algebra book was pretty.

I am sure hoping that a pretty book and nice handwriting will get me an A!

Sending sympathies your way - I hate math too so I completely understand.
Good luck with that.

I know how you feel, I was the same way with chemistry. I somehow found my way with the math. But ask me about an element and I'm just dumbfounded.

Ugh! Algebra II, Geometry, Trig...definitely not my favorite things either. Don't worry though, I'm sure you will get the hang of it. My college professors were WAY MORE helpful than my high school math teachers. Good luck! I'm rooting for ya!

P.S. If you have a chance, stop by my blog and check out "Fishful Thinking" Thursdays. I think you'd really like it!
