Hello. I'm 18 years old and have always just "squeeked" by in math at school. I've always been lost, and I feel that my not getting the needed help during the basics have brought me extremely behind through the years, pretty much to the point now where I cannot pass math no matter how hard I try. I have always done great in all other subjects-- but not math, (science also when math is involved - aka Physics). I was just wondering if anyone can give me an idea of how to jump into math from the "bottom" up, and give myself a self education in math. I feel it is the only way at this point, and I would love to get my skills up to par, and perhaps even advanced them to higher math such as calculus. Thanks alot. I'm very interested in physics but feel I'll never be anything but a spectator while I'm so lacking in math. I know it will be hard work, but I'd like to try. _So ya, any books, or types of math to study--etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot guys.
