So here is what happened. I never learned algebra in high school. I joined the military after highschool and got out with goals of going to college. My degree of choice was physics. I took the SATs and my school put me into algebra 2 (out of 3....4 if you count pre algebra) based on my SAT scores. Well, I didn't have a clue what was going on, and I didn't realize that it was a class that I was missing two prerequisite classes to. I just thought I was awful at math. I passed with a C after going to tutoring every day after class. It was a real pain to pass that class and it made me think i was complete trash at math. After that I did two years of and English degree (I love writing). But now I want to get back onto the Physics horse. I know that I was put in a class too high for what I knew, but I still feel apprehensive about math. Once i understood things better, I realized that the algebra was really quite easy, but I'm not sure if it just became easy due to the amount of tutoring I did lol. So I'm a bit afraid, a bit relieved that it was so hard for a reason, but not sure if that reason is really good enough to justify how much of a pain it was. I don't know what to think. Its been two years as well, I'll have to find a way to take pre algebra and algebra 1, even though I've already completed algebra 2. Sooooo....thoughts?
