So I think I'm going to fail linear algebra. Has anyone else ever failed a course? My worry is, is that I also didn't do very well in discrete mathematics. I realize linear algebra is very important, & I'm not exactly sure why I'm doing so poorly. Whether its me not being able to understand the abstract concepts, study habits, textbook (I tend use various textbooks as the one we use I just can't seem to understand very well), etc. Anyway, if its me, should I start to look to major in something else besides physics? I'm doing well in the introductory physics courses, but I'm worried about the higher physics classes if I'm struggling already with linear algebra. Guess I'm just looking for some advice or insight. Don't really need anything sugar coated, as I'd like to now before I get in way over my head. I tutor math/science & I'm not use to not doing well... but then again, I also realize proof based mathematics is a totally different game.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
