Hello friends. It seems to me that i have reach a wall with my math education. In 3.5 months i will be doing tests for mathematics faculty(college), something like SAT but a bit more difficult i think. Anyway i have been doing more difficult problems from problem set and i simply cant figure them out. When i look at the solution i realize that i would have never thought of that. I could have been sitting for hours and hours and i still wouldn't have thought of that. When i can't figure out the problem like that i usually feel depressed and that i lack mathematical ability. I was planning to do math major but i have serious self doubt. If i can't do these harder high school level problems, how the hell i am going to do real analysis or something more complicated??? On top of that i am a newcomer to mathematics. In my first year of high school i had D. As a matter of fact one can check out this thread that is about 1.5 years old where i thought that 3.7b - 3.7 = b. Also i college i will be up against people that finished mathematical gymnasium or that were good at math through out the high school. Now i must say that i advanced a lot in those year and a half. Currently i have an A from my calculus course and i can do harder problems then average, also i enjoy math far more then in that past. But i still feel like i get a reality check about my math potential when i can't figure out the problem that i should. Did anyone else had the self doubt like i ma having right now and what to do about it? Thanks.
