In my quest to build le ultimate PC, I forgot to properly allocate funds to my tuition. so instead of having $3000 for 2 or 3 classes this semester, I only have $1000. I am taking precalculus this semester.
Thanks for the time!
1) neither pre-calc nor calc is mandatory for graduating from public schools
2) you still have to take the placement exam, and a ton of people suck at maths
3) for a lot of majors they want business calc or something, even for the 2-year
4) People are really, really bad at maths. I've tutored a Japanese kid who was like "I took this shit in fourth grade!" (referring to fractions) and I was like "well then you should be good at it huh"
t. regards 4+ year maths and sciences tutor
P.s. the lower level stuff is usually horrendously taught. Incredibly little work is done on improving the skill of the students, versus just presenting them with material and "hoping" [shekling intensifies] they absorb it.
I actually did the placement test for two math courses and I assume most of the shittier unis accept BC calc for calc I and calc II (mine did). should've been three but I was retarded and went to the wrong place.
My uni is not horribly shitty, but I opted for a shittier uni cause it was cheaper. People suck at math here which is sad because it's supposedly a top 10 engineering school.
building a super duper amazing PC is nothing short of a puzzle piece. I can "build" pcs no problem. it's just a matter of money.
College on the other hand...it's a matter of a A LOT of money.
to the anon who said just take a loan, fuck your loan Mr.Shekelsteinowitz. If I borrow $200 from you, I will pay back exactly $200 and nothing more. If that means I graduate in six years instead of four, so be it.
>four years instead of six
>one class at a time
Nigger it would take 16 years instead of 4. Meanwhile you're paying 4x as many "fees" because you're not taking four classes per semester.
Enjoy it when you're still a minimum wagecuck because your class has an attendance policy and you need to eat.
