I hate math so much
Its like everyone around me is speaking a different language and they get mad at me when I can't speak it
>needing math beyond basic addition subtraction, division and multiplication
>not getting a computer to do the rest of that bullshit for you
If you play it like a memory game without a good memory you're going to get fucked up.
Try to imagine the problem and solve it intuitively without regard to strict mathematical structure and then use math to fill in the gaps.
Unless you're one of those people with a fucked up brain in which case you should talk to your counselor about an individual education plan which can get you all sorts of free resources through which you can skate through math.
> be stupid as fuck
> awful at math
> still going to major in Accounting starting this fall
I keep telling myself that if I just drown myself in work I'll be able to make it somehow but I'm not sure.
I literally have no idea what you're suggesting I do
I've tried tutoring in the past but it just makes me anxious because every time I don't understand something I can feel them getting more and more annoyed by me
I can't stand mathematics either. Don't get me wrong, I can recognize the elegance and beauty of them. However, I have such a an awful affect associated with maths stemming from bad experience at school that anything past basic algebra makes me anxious as fuck.
math is actually kind of like when you are a kid and you disassemble an old radio/toy/etc... to understand how it works, but in a completely abstract setting where objects are defined on the basis of the relationship between their basic constituents
math problems often have to do with particular instances of certain "objects", solving them means understanding how they work
just how a mechanic works with a particular instance of a generic "vehicle" for many different instances of such concept, theory helps you understand the general properties of those objects
it's actually important to understand how math works before doing it, it's probably one of the most overlooked things when people teach it
after I left high school I hated maths as well, but now I can definitely say I had no idea what math was all about
