I'm in Calc II right and have switched my major from biology to math. I go to a small liberal arts college, my calc class consists of 8 people. Needless to say, the professor continually calls on each one of us in class to make sure we understand what's going on. I've been doing A+ work throughout the semester, that is, until we hit the last chapter about infinite sequences and series. But even before this chapter, I've noticed that it takes me a while to understand any concept. I always read the chapters before class, but even so, I feel that I just don't get things right away unlike the other students in the class. It takes me many hours after class to truly grasp these concepts. Even when doing homework, I first make numerous mistakes and then learn from them. Since I've been so overwhelmed with pre-med courses lately, calc has been on the backburner and I haven't had a chance to study and prepare for the course. These days, I seem to be the only one incapable of answering any questions that arise in class. I feel just plain dumb for not grasping these concepts on the spot. Has anyone ever been in this situation? Would I be classified as a slow learner?
