I feel like I could have done better on the best by spending more time memorizing the basic facts. Mathematically I did almost everything correctly, just losing easy points by not reading the multiple choice questions carefully. Next test I will spend more time going over the review packet.
I was decently satisfied with the grade I earned, that being said, next time I shouldn’t rush through the test. I missed so many stupid little points because I didn’t read the questions right and even accidentally skipped over one (a really easy one at that). I knew the content well, nothing I didn’t know well enough to answer but I need to proof read my work and go a bit slower next time!
My education always came first, that’s how my parents raised me. When I was young my father was the one who pushed me everyday to stay focus in school. My father was a math professor back in our country and he helped me understand and fall in love with math. I thank him a lot because math always came naturally throughout my junior and high school years. Then, I got to calculus. I didn’t take any math courses for more than a year and I began to have trouble with it. I felt out of place and thought I was never going to understand math how I use to. After studying and doing problems over and over again it started to come back slowly. Not having any math courses for a while has made me forgotten some rules and other things in math. Hopefully this class will help me get back on track with one of my favorite subjects.
My experience with was very good until I got into college. I was us to spending at least a week on one topic because repetitive reviewing is one way that i remember the material. I believe it also has something to do with the teacher because every person who knows math is not always the right person to teach the subject. I think that the professors who take out the extra time to find a way for their students to remember the material had a better success rate in the overall class.
I have to say that math wasn’t one of my favorite classes. When I was growing up, I really did not care for math however this was change through each level that I went. Since math is a tricky subject like that, if you do not practice it all the time you tend to forget it. When I was in junior high school, I never thought that I will need math for anything in my life since I often found this subject boring and hard to understand. Now I know that I was all wrong. Math in the world around us sometimes seems invisible. But math is present in our world all the time–in the workplace, in our homes, and in life in general. I really started like math, when I was in high school because in this part of my life, I realized that math is more that a problem that has one answer, since we can find this answer in many ways and this is something that we can apply in our daily lives. One thing that I like and hate from math is that sometimes if can be really precise with the answer but sometimes not. Math makes our lives easier since only using simple operations like multiplication, division, add and subtraction we can know how much people will in the next 10 years, how much calories we burn during the day etc. Simple things like these make that l really enjoy math. I know that math for some people it could be boring and hard but if we put just a little of attention we can see that math is not that difficult. In conclusion math is subject that I can enjoy but also it can be a subject in which we can find a hard time solving the problems.
I feel math has always come pretty naturally to me and I have never really struggled in it. I do believe some concepts take longer than others to fully understand and this can only be mastered with practice. I took calculus in High School so I am not too worried about the formula applications in this class, as long as I am able to grasp the concepts and procedures leading to the calculations I feel I will be okay. The reason I have always enjoyed math is because unlike writing an essay there is always a definitive answer.
My experience with math has never been a bad one. I have always had very good, extremely helpful professors ever since high school. I don’t think I’ve ever been really bad in math, unless I don’t put the effort to do good. Math is the only subject which isn’t difficult for me compared to history or science.
My strategy for passing the class is by doing the assignments and paying very close attention in class. I don’t have an excuse for not paying attention since my only distraction, which is my phone, doesn’t have service in that classroom. I plan on taking my markers because I am a visual person and that would help me understand the material better.
In high school I enjoyed math a lot, maybe because it was not to challenging, and now that I am in College I do not appreciate it as much. What I struggle with the most is a test with a certain time limit, because I like to test it out and recheck if the answer is correct. I also like checking if my arithmetic was right.
My strategy for getting an A in this class, is paying attention and doing the homework every time it is assigned. Hopefully with hard work I will get the A.
Math is pretty simple for me to understand. The thing that gets me is the exams. For me if i feel rushed i tend to freeze up and forget what i have learned. And if i don’t understand something i look up a simpler way to do the problem to understand the problem a little bit better.
To succeed in this class i would just have to make sure that i understand what is going on and do the work.
The last math class that I took was Calculus 1 and it was a year ago. I have always had my ups and downs with math. There was a time when I was really good at it and understood it but then later I just started loosing interest in math. After coming to citytech I have taken 3 math classes and I am really glad I took them. These classes gave me a better understanding to a lot of concepts that I didn’t get before. For me to get an “A” I just need to practice a lot and understand the basics properly.
