I am in a huge dilemma. I dropped out of high school in 9th grade so I never have taken a science class. I have never seen biology, chemistry, physics. I started with arithmetic at the local community college. Fast forward and I am now taking calculus 2 in the fall. I am extremely ignorant of science. My cc offered to wave the pre rec for calculus based intro physics based on transcripts and track record of getting things done. Now I do not know anything about physics. The Physics material presented (topics) are exactly the same. I am of the type that I like to understand what is happening and why when I learn something. Should I take algebra based intro physics to get familiar with the material or just dive in into calculus based intro? I do not remember much of vectors because I have not needed to use them since I took pre - cal and the teacher kinda glanced over this instead focused more truth tables (logic) because the class where not doing so good on word problems. Taking algebra based physics will not prevent me from transferring slower. I am a math major because that is the only thing which I know of due to my ignorance of the subjects that I can can do. Who knows I may like physics or engineering the more I learn about the natural word. Sorry for the wordy post.
