I know this may sound silly, but right now I'm a physics major just starting the calculus sequence and I just have a question or two about how everyone else studies math. Obviously, math is important for later on, so I want to learn it correctly and not just study enough to pass the tests. For me, math is doable but I always seem to get stuck on problems and I want to run to the TA. Tech subjects seem like there's no way to learn it yourself without someone standing over you and checking your work. I know that other people seem to manage just fine without spending outrageous amounts of time in the TA's office so is there any way I can wean myself off of this tendency? And a final question about how you go about studying math. Currently what I do is go to the lecture, take notes, and then later rewrite and reread the notes, and finally attempt homework. Does anyone do it differently or have any suggestions? Sorry for the rambling and I appreciate all the advice I get, truly. Thank you!
