I need some math advice or recommendations, but first I will explain my situation. I am an adult with an associates and I have been fortunate enough to have my employer offer to send me back to school for M.E. I really enjoy math and physics. In fact, some of my favorite classes when I was getting my associates were physics and statics. The problem is that I am not very good at math. I don't retain much from lectures and end up learning it on my own later. If I cannot figure it out on my own from notes or other resources, then I will need to turn to help from a friend or tutor. So, it is not that I hate math...I actually really enjoy it. Especially when something finally clicks and I get this sense of reward. However, it can be extremely frustrating when I'm stuck. How can someone be so bad at something they find interesting and enjoy? Are there any resources out there that can help me look at things in a different way so it is better absorbed? Career or degree change is not really an option for me. The worst case scenario would be to just drop out altogether and carry on with life, but refuse I to give into this problem just because its difficult. There must be some other way to train myself so that I am not doubling or tripling up on my study and bothering my tutor so much.
