I'm working on a degree in criminal justice and can't seem to pass college algebra. I've failed it twice actually. I breeze through all of my other courses, but have totally given up on that one class. I study hard, got a tutor, etc, but I just can't get it. I've always struggled with math and now I have to sit beside 18 year olds who probably think I'm a total moron. My professor told me this..."Cheyanne, I'm going to tell you something no one's probably ever said to you..Some people never get it and I believe you are on of them...You excel in most all other areas, but can't survive this..you're intelligent, dedicated and work harder than anyone I've seen in a long time..just accept this is one of those things you can't do and you'll be better for it." I left crying. He wasn't cruel, just honest. Don't get me wrong, I fly through basic algebra, but when they start combining it with geometry and mile long formulas..my brain over heats. LOL This class is part of my degree plan and I can't finish without it. Anyone else have or had this problem in college?
