I thought Calculus III was easy. Calculus I was easier. Calculus II kicked my ass

I understood most of the stuff in Calculus than fucking Trigonometry....

New age mofos want everything the easy way.... why do you think so many resort to crime???

Yeah i ranI understood most of the stuff in Calculus than fucking Trigonometry....

As fast as i could

I WISH i had the internet back then

I had really bad math anxiety

Honestly bgol specifically @4 Dimensional made me actually enjoy it

The TEACHERS and PARENTS have to take some responsibility here

I remember I took a class on just that subject fear of math. It was a real eye opener.

A lot of people are scared of math because you can't argue with it, it's precise.

Problem is here in America we don't teach effective methods to prepare kids to be more receptive toward math.

For me the best way math stuck with me was making it physical.

Abacus, counting blocks, etc Seeing math physically helped me learn it easier than just looking at a problem on a paper.

That took away some of the rigors of learning math for me. But everyone is different.

When I took calculus in college I was lucky enough to have a teacher that used to work at NASA. He wasn't so hard on the students like the other teachers were...

I’m taking stat right now and I feel the same way. Holy shit. It literally is a different lanfuage

I don’t disagree with you on this. However if you get to an advanced level in CJ or socio you can still earn a decent living. You can teach or go into law. And not just law enforcement either. Law school, FBI and other abc agencies. Etc

Lol!!! This was me in Physical ChemistryI’m taking stat right now and I feel the same way. Holy shit. It literally is a different lanfuage

This is true, but convincing the students to go to grad school is a whole other hurdle. Plus, they still have to take the LSAT and FBI entrance exam. Both have reasoning and high analysis questions.I don’t disagree with you on this. However if you get to an advanced level in CJ or socio you can still earn a decent living.

Holy hell that is it EXACTLY

Im a words guy debate writing etc

Math don't play that

1+1=2

Thats it no gray area no wiggle room thats IT.

I can tell you EXACTLY when i shut down too 6th grade dividing fractions factors algebra

Crazy part?

Math WORD problems?

I could still do decent

Its the numbers they so unforgiving

Its either right or wrong.

And a lot of math especially early is to just ACCEPT THE CONCEPT BE ABLE TO USE IT AND MOVE ON

My mind just didn't work like that

But a job kids bills medical issues etc...

Oh now i get it.

Dude was mad ignorant so I laid into him. Told him hes been on this earth since the 80s and has nothing to show for it, and that hes old enough to know better that shit doesnt come easy. Hurt some feelings, but I got my point across. Many people in general just try to do the minimum to get by. You can either work hard now, or you will work hard later. Doing the math sucks, but people pay you nicely to do it because everybody wont do it.

Depending on what math you talking about.. easiest way to make people more comfortable with math is reminding them this is a capitalistic society.. money=math.. knowing math will help you understand money.. math would than look at as a necessity... put some dollars/coins in a kid face and you can teach them addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fraction and percentage in no time.. even algebra... you have to make it informative and fun

Long story short for me,

Always been good at math.

Graduated high school with AP Calculus & AP Physics...

Can't remember in which order but one class couldn't be taken with not having the other.

Many years after graduating I realized I was the only student in my graduating class to leave with completing AP Calc and AP Physics.

Wish I had peeped that during my senior to use it as leverage to get incentives.

Everything is mathematical in my mind.

Calc was straight. Helped tremendously with Physics... Helped me get a C.

My favorite class to teach is calculus. It’s really makes you think. Granted, it’s not all easy. If not something everyone can pick up.

Calculus based physics was easier for me that general physics.Calc was straight. Helped tremendously with Physics... Helped me get a C.

When I took Ecomincs, my professor was using algebra. I eventually figured it she was doing was area under the curve, so I started using calculus. Made that class 10 times easier than it was. And less work as wel.

Gotta break down peoples fear of math.

Agreed. I had a similar experience with physics in high school. I didn't do so well in the class overall, but the old teacher made things interesting for us teenagers. I still remember us measuring our "horsepower" - we were on the main floor of the building & he had us doing stairwell sprints up to the 3rd floor. Lots of fun as there were many athletes in the class. Everyone was fully invested.

Shoutout to some other science teachers in junior high & HS. They were young themselves (only 30 - 35yo) so they could relate well to us 14 - 18yo students.

Horsepower is a unit of measurement that calculates power. It was originally coined by a Scottish engineer to compare the power of steam engines with the power of horses. This article will show you how to calculate the horsepower of your...

The Bible of College mathematics: "Analytical Geometry and the Calculus". I loveI thought Calculus III was easy. Calculus I was easier. Calculus II kicked my ass

mathematics

Yeah i ran

As fast as i could

I WISH i had the internet back then

Agreed. It would have been great to have back in the day. Still remember being in an intro' to computers course in HS ... first time we were using email ... and of course Online-Video / BGOL starting to take off in college ... back in the late-90s ...

Black Engineer here...

After looking through that text, there are concepts I was taught and did well with but a lot that was breezed through. I'm glad I have at least a basic understanding of it at least.The Bible of College mathematics: "Analytical Geometry and the Calculus". I love

So, I'm gonna push back a little regarding this. We have to stop shaming people for going back and getting degrees. It's better he is doing rather than not do it at all.A 32 year old nigga whos really old as fuck to be getting an undergrad degree

I'm actually working on a grant proposal regarding funding that helps non-traditional students navigate higher education. I do this now on a small scale. But, I would like to have quarterly cohorts of people who want to use education as a means to change their lives.

Now, to your point, he needs to realize that majoring in film is basically pissing his money away.

cause i failed physics by one point

physics that i have never seen again since i begged the prof to give me an extra point

my whole life would have been different if not for the kindness of that man

why was i forced to take such a hard subject for absolutely no reason

smh

SaluteBlack Engineer here...

Had a few friends who were in NEBE

I'm an EE now and not ashamed to say I took Calc 1 thru Calc 3 THREE damn times each. But I'm a slow learner tho, and was coming from a Liberal Arts environment with a very limited Math background. But was ever so determined to become an Engineer. My friends were all doctors, lawyers and junior bank execs. I'm Naija, felt the pressure hard!

Only way I survived was becoming familiar with the concepts, memorizing formulas, and actually getting a kick out of predicting the correct answer, or approximating it. Finally got to enjoying the pains & reward at arriving at the right answer, and was able to pass the course at last.

Yrs later, i still browse thru my Calc book, happen on a forgotten topic, and relive the pains all over again with PatrickJMT on youtube lol

Bro Geometry and Trig were easy as fuck for me, but for some reason, I would always fuck up the formulas in Algebra 2. I promised myself I would take Calculous and Math Analysis before I kick the bucket. Any advice for an old man learning new tricks?
