Hi, I'm taking calculus and I was wondering if problem-solving and comprehension go necessarily hand-to-hand. For example, I often do not understand long and extensive texts and simply try to narrow it down to understanding the concepts intuitively. I have so far managed to do well in math, even despite not relying on formal definitions. I also have probably forgotten a few stuff from my pre-calculus class (definitions or textual stuff) but I retain the concepts. For example, sometimes I just know how it's done, but I don't know how to formulate things into words or a coherent set of logical phrases. All this makes me extremely anxious, because I feel like I'm not really understanding anything at all, even though I manage to pull of grades between 80-95%...which is pretty weird! How about you guys, do you share some similarities with my situation?
