  • Algebra was created to see if the human brain really could take pressure and not explode.

    When I took algebra, I watched a ton of instructional YouTube videos. I start to hyperventilate when I do see an algebra problem.

  • lol! im starting back up at college this fall (hopefully if i can get my financial aid issues sorted out) and im starting waaaaay down at the bottom - beginning algebra. then i have to do intermediate algebra, and THEN ill be in college algebra. THAT is how terrible i am at math.

  • I am so not a math person. Scarily enough I gave birth to one and when he's not burning my brain with math, physics or robotics, I'm grateful. He very willingly helps his sister when I cannot.

  • Both of my parents were math majors in college. My dad was a math teacher, my mom was a tax accountant. I hate math. My son is a math wiz. He doesn't understand why people think math is hard.

  • Ugh! Math is my worst subject, so I feel your pain! There's a website called Math For Dummies Like Us- goes all the way up to Calc. Plus there are You Tube videos that show teachers working out problems on the board, if you get stuck. GL!

  • I couldn't even survive freshman algebra. I think I'm smart but when it comes to algebra I can't wrap my mind around the idea. Sucks because all of that is pretty much required.

  • I feel for you, honey, I really do. The last time I had to face a problem with numbers and letters in it--the two really shouldn't mix--was in 1991, when I took a college algebra course over the summer. I did it that way for two reasons. First, the class was either going to ruin eight weeks of my life or sixteen, so I figured I'd go for the shorter of the two. And second, I was about to get married and I didn't think my new marriage would survive the brutal battle between me and the math. And in the last twenty-two years, I've never thought about algebra again and never had cause to use the horrid stuff in my everyday life like the teacher swore I would.

  • I have always sucked at math of any kind, this is my second and last math class for college (if I don't fail, fingers crossed for me) then I will never have to evaluate a squared - b cubed + 5 which makes no sense because the answer will be some odd ass crap like b - 6

  • There was ONE instance of an algebra problem that I thought I might actually use, it was a word problem asking how many x miles you would go on a certain amount of gas, so ya that one I could get, but the rest no.
