Main Question or Discussion Point
For me it's a necessary evil, I need it to do what I want to do, and part if why math usually makes me want to break things is so often when I reach a higher level of math, it often feels as though I'm being taught how to do one thing, like factoring polynomials, and in the next level, I've got to relearn how to do them because I get a wrong answer when I try to do it the way it was done before. Now I'm sure this is just my perception, but it's part of the reason that I've struggled with math in the past and still struggle at some things. Is this a wrong perception? Is it about how it's taught rather than something else?
