Hey I'm new here! I go to secondary high and I dropped maths this second year because my self-confidence is so low when it comes to maths. I lved algebra, but I nearly failed on many of the tests and longer examinations. I see there are so many intelligent people here, compared to me, and I will not be able to join the discussions or answer any questions - which I would be glad to do if I could. My problem is that I love maths, but no matter how hard I worked I got average grades and below that, except on algebra where I did very well. I NEED to buy a few good books on mathematics. And I am also interested in rocket science. I need to revive my memory of what maths was like!:) All recommendations are welcome! And then I have a last question: Are there many men/boys in this forum?
