Some background: I've never been good at math, although I'm finding that it doesn't necessarily mean I'll ever be good at it. However, when I was younger (US grade K-7) I was always an A+ student across the board; I've always loved learning and even though I experienced some turbulence, that has never left me. The more I think about it, the more I've realized that my disinterest in school after the 7th grade was due to terrible teachers. During that specific year, I spent my first semester at a private Christian school and we were doing math with Roman Numerals (not joking) before I transferred back to public school only to be thrown into the world of Pre-Algebra. I'd ask my teacher for help and she suggested I either take remedial classes or hire a tutor. Basically, she didn't do her job and was oftentimes rude...From there on I struggled with math and I honestly don't know how I managed to make a passing grade because I made a habit of skipping math class... Currently, I feel like I'm finally mastering math up to Algebra 2. I've been spending the last year or so basically teaching myself. Still, math is my main worry because even my introductory courses (i.e. Classical Mechanics) will be calculus-based. I know that I won't be thrown into these classes without preparation, but I'm still worried I won't get the hang of it on time, much less an intuitive understanding. However, I DO want to have a good understanding of the necessary math I'll need for school. I think the worst thing I've done is look ahead into some of those equations that contain half of the alphabet and then some... I guess what I want to know is are there any other people that have struggled with math in a similar way? I do want to be good at it; it's not something I look at as a chore, I just fear that my best won't be good enough. What are some great (preferably) free resources? Or has anyone tried one of those tutoring websites (i.e. ThatTutorGuy) and found it redeemable? Lol. My favorite method of learning is to spend time alone with a book, but I've come to find that using multiple resources has proven to work really well. I'm also worried that since I'll have to take pre-requisites before gen-eds, I'll end up falling so far behind that I'll give up altogether. This all looks so silly typed out, but it's a very real thing right now and some advice would be ever-so amazing. Thanks.
