The fact you aren’t doing good in math now is a sign of your work ethic not your skills. If you put in the work you can and will improve and be able to learn what you need to learn.
I hated and did terrible in math throughout my school career. As such most of my issues in middle/high school with math were simply due to not paying attention and not giving much effort. I only turned things around in college once I got slapped with a massive F and had to re-take the class. This doesn’t mean I turned into a star 100% student, but I did end up passing, and getting through it.
Its true your currently going through a once in lifetime situation with schooling that makes it different and potentially harder to learn. However, if you know your math skills need improvement, you should work on improving them, at least to an acceptable point. (C’s get degrees!)
Be sure to put in the effort, at a certain point in college you will realize you will need to study harder, work harder and actually put in your 100% to pass a class. This could be math, or it could be some other course.
A CS degree is like 50% math, however most of that math is “special CS math” that you probably would never learn about unless you get a CS degree. Stuff like data structures, algorithms, finite automota, and discrete math are all the kinds of “CS math” you’d learn that is totally different than what your probably learning now.
Keep learning, keep studying, and focus on your own weak points to keep improving.
Whatever level of math you’re doing - I’m sure there’s a course for you on Coursera or Edx, or wherever.
Use it to suppliment your normal school work - or replace it if you find it better/easier to follow.
The thing with math is that once you fall behind - you fall behind. It’s hard to skip forward and pick up without grasping the earlier material. You can’t do algebra if you can’t add numbers. You can’t do calculus if you don’t understand algebra.
Hey guys thank you all for responding. It’s just frustrating.
My school has two math class, advanced and basic. I am in advanced and the teachers basically just links us videos on youtube and give us exercise, without giving further detail. Videos should be supplement not the main way we learn. And when he does explain, he explains after we do the exercises, and only explain one number.
I am sorry if I seem whiny. I’m not sure if I hate math or the teacher’s teaching style. It’s just frustrating.
