Ok, I'm going to try and make this short. I'm currently a senior in high school and I'm insecure about my abilities thus far in math. Basically my previous math teachers were, in my opinion, not the best. I was stuck in an all senior class for Algebra I, II, and Geometry; in which the teachers really "dumbed" the material down just so the seniors who really needed to pass to graduate wouldn't fail. This included them even skipping sections they deemed too difficult for them. For two of those classes (Algebra II and Geometry) the teachers were retiring the next year and really just wanted out of there. My Geometry teacher hardly taught us at all. He just assigned book work for the most part and chewed tobacco in the back of the class room. Yea, that class wasn't very productive. Any way, now I'm a senior myself and I'll be graduating this year. However, now I'm not sure whether or not I'm up to college level math. I may be able to pass the class, but I'm shooting for straight A's here and at least a 3.5 GPA, so I need to have my stuff together. And to top it all off, the majors that I'm seriously considering require a lot of math. So my questions are: What can I do at this point to fortify my math skills? If that means essentially re-mediating on the topics, what are some tips for going about that? Do most colleges offer a class or classes to help with this problem? Or am I out of luck? Thanks in advance for any advice.
