    I am a student currently attending a community college in Florida. I am what you would call a more right brain oriented individual, with an acute fascination with physics. Its become so much so that I can consider physics a passion. I have One problem. I am not "highly exceptional" in math, and I am actually struggling in Algebra right now. I sometimes adhere to believe that if I'm struggling in algebra, and in math, how could I possibly understand physics. Math has never really been my easiest subject.
    I understand that physics is a general mixture of math and science. I acknowledge the basic concepts of physics, and understand the general idea, but when it comes to the math involved, I am utterly confused. I cannot help trying to study physics though. and I don't want to give up. I really would ultimately like to become a physicist of some sort. Is there anyone who could help clarify what I need to do to accomplish my dream, and shed some light on the subject. I have the utmost highest respect to you (the actual physicists) and individuals who know what they are dealing with. Thanks

    check out the FAQ. That is the answer to your question. Work, and then some more work. Nothing comes easy, and the only one fit to be a physicist is the one that actually doesn't give a crap about their talents (before dyscalculia) and just soldier on.

    I believe you can do it, more allnighters and more of that sweet scientist nitro, aka coffee.

    Thanks Fearless, I appreciate it... I am going to make a valiant effort to become what I need. I will be actively contributing to this board whenever I can. Nothing can stop us now.

    Whiterasta: I loled.

    But seriously, enthusiasm is good. It's also much appreciated. Although I believe that passion and commitment is what makes a scientist. That is what you live of the days when the enthusiasm is very low.
