Hello, everyone. I'm trying to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, and my problem is that I have to learn college-level Calculus and Physics. I managed to get through College Algebra and Trigonometry without too much trouble, and I'm taking Precalculus now. I'm taking all these classes at a community college, before I transfer to a four-year school. I'm running into all kinds of problems with my Math classes, though. I feel like I'm essentially having to learn everything on my own and that I'm not getting much insight beyond what's written in the textbook by attending class. So, I'm coming here in order to try and figure out a different perspective on Math. I feel like I need to be learning to see it as a series of underlying concepts rather than just a frustrating mental torture that involves a lot of memorization and practice, but I'm not getting there. This is especially unpleasant because I'm an abstract thinker and enjoy things like computers and science because I see all these patterns and connections, but I just don't understand Math in that way. That's probably why I never liked the subject, and what made me wait so long after High School to pursue the degree I wanted.
