Also I can relate, as I'm in high school to and I plan to take physics senior year. I did want to take it earlier, but I'm not enthusiastic in math, so the fact I got bad grades in math held me back even more. I was truly bad luck brian, as physics was my dream ever since I was seven. It's one of the few things that make me enjoy life to be honest. Physics is truly an art to me.

I have found that math becomes easier and less of a chore when you treat it as a method instead of an end. It's just the logical answer of what makes sense. Math isn't a bunch of rules, it is process of understanding. You slowly learn all the pieces, geometry and algebra, and then in calculus it all comes together with limit theory and derivatives and integrals. My calc teacher puts a lot of calc based physics into the curriculum, and with it you start to see the real life application of what you are learning, in a way that makes sense, unlike in algebra. I don't know if you have gotten to calculus, but, at least in my school, that is when most students get the "aha moment". Treat math as a language and a skill, and simply use it to further your understanding of science. Good luck in your future math classes.
