Its like everyone around me is speaking a different language and they get mad at me when I can't speak it

Define "math".

Anything harder than basic Algebra

I've accepted the fact that I'm not really smart

You have to do lots of practice problems. I also don't get things simply by looking at definitions, I need to do it myself to get it.

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.

Then you are already ahead of most of the population?

It's called dyscalculia, one of my friends has it.

But if he understands algebra then he doesn't have it I think.

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.

Same boat here

Worst part is my parents put me in advanced math courses because I'm "gifted" (read: autistic)

I'm barely passing using a combination of sheer luck and adderall

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.

Its ok. Long division is legitimately harder than multi-variable calculus.

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

10 like proof? Is this a facebook based assignment?
