Math, I believe, is necessary but very unpleasant and stressful. I don’t consider myself terrible at math but I need time to understand and fully analyze the problem before I begin. I don’t hate math. Math to me has its ups and downs. When working on architecture, I get this different attitude when math is involved. Laziness is out of the picture. I realize that I must get the right answer because this is extremely important for working on a structure. Math is going to be around me my whole life and I knew what I was getting myself into when I chose this career path. What I need to do (and everyone else) to get an “A”…is to practice math everyday. Make whatever subject you’re having trouble with…turn it into a hobby and work on it each day.
