I did OK until I got into Algebra..and I went downhill in a hurry. Not the best teacher didn't help, and my older brother had left for college so now tutor at home. Luckily.. my teacher who "should" have flunked me gave me a D- so I could "pass". Except for business math, I never took another math class in high school!!!!! Guess what? Whatever math I've needed.. it's never been algebra!mardahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03039857567917347954noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8047796661200159328.post-76429527076138978882013-05-03T07:13:17.734-07:002013-05-03T07:13:17.734-07:00I loved math, but hated word problems.

Algebra made some sense, but I would rather be writing, riding horses, or reading anything...even a Latin book.

I too have a degree of dislexia. <br /><br />Working math problems doesn't seem to bother me but I do put my numbers in the wrong order. I had trouble with second semester chemistry in college (in high school we mostly developed film and did litmus tests and simple stuff). <br /><br />To go on I needed a "C" or higher but I got a "D" so I had to repeat. The second time I was flunked by my different teacher, the head of the chemistry department. Finally eleven years later at a community college I passed it.<br /><br />I do have a Math minor in college. Advanced Algebra was my flunk out course that I dropped and where I stopped. That came right after Differential Equations.<br />..Jimhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02982249173214655060noreply@blogger.com
