guidance on math "failure" Can someone please give me some feedback on why I am having such a hard time with abstract math? I went went from almost straight a's to barely being able to solve a problem in number theory. I had someone tell me that it is like I have storage spots in my brain but they are already filled up. My last two exams scores were 98 and 99 in calc. 3. Now I cannot seem to solve even one problem out of my hw in number theory.
