OK let me explain. I go to a charter school, so the school is 4 hours and mostly on computers Before high school my math was horrible. When I got into high school i made a deterimation to get good grades in math. At first, I didn't succeed. But I studied, and eventually I was getting all A's in math. I got a award from the rotary club for the most improved grades. However, the problem is this. I have trouble with factoring, and i remember taking the SAT and having trouble on this problem to do with 'mirrors' in an xy graph of functions i am good with algebra however however when i was a freshmen in high school, when most students take calculus, i was taking essienals. Basic math. I passed that with an A. Went onto pre algebra, passed that. Went onto algebra 1, passed that. Then BOOM, I am transfered to another school that doesnt have homework, and then from there I am lost I had a teacher that couldnt help me because she was so busy. I couldnt ask questions like i always did, everyday, constantly i was very inquisitive with my old regular high school so i never got past algebra 1 then guess what? here comes the AIM test for math What do I do? Well, I realize I don't have ANY CLUE how to do the problems because I NEVER GOT THAT FAR IN MATH. So i answered the questions i knew, and the ones i didnt i just guessed. Test results come back, "far below average'. What the heck? I was so pissed. I am good in math, and here I get this grade. I want to be a physcist even so here i have to take it again i have no clue where to start but if someone could help me with factoring or that mirror graph thing that would be great get this though, i forgot EVERYTHING even BASIC MATH, except algebra i cant even do percents anymore reason is i finished my math credits and dont have to do math so i'm not getting in the practice now im really screwed i dont even remember how to do fractions :sigh: this test comes in oct 25th too another thing, in the second post here..
