The adventures of a noob on pre-calculus lane.

Posted 10-03-2009 at 08:10 PM by Ascherit
If it hasn't been obvious yet from my previous two blogs and a drawing I've posted in my art thread, I really hate precal.

But the word 'hate' is an understatement.

I got a 60 on my second precal test.

Yes, 60. 3 1/2 hours of studying and I get rewarded with an F. The look on my face when I beheld my first mathematical failure was more than shocking.

BUT, after the glorious 20-point curve on the test, I was able to keep my A average for the 1st grading period. Barely.

It's kinda sad though because the 20-point curve shows how much all of us pre-AP precal students fail at math. If this is how I'm doing in precal now, imagine how I'll be able to survive in ACTUAL calculus. Oh god. I think I'll need to be hospitalized for epic brain failure next year.

Note to self: Precal is a pain in the ass and I would save myself so many hours of sleep and misery if I was able to drop it. But I can't. And that's what sucks.

Obligatory anti-precal drawing

    mm. We haven't really gotten to anything very difficult in Pre-Calc yet, but you might be learning stuff in a different order, method, or maybe just be expected to know more stuff through your teacher. Not that my teacher actually teaches anything. He just asks if we have questions and assigns the next batch of homework. :U

    Good luck in your mathematical voyages. ;_;

    that's basically how it works for classes later on. work your ass off, get a low score -- but then because the whole class failed, the curve saves everyone. for my ap physics class, you only need to get a 65 to get an A. that itself is a challenge.

    but don't beat yourself up because of it. YOU WILL UNDERSTAND IT AND GET BETTER /fighter

    I hate calculus. It's the reason I stopped striving for a computer science degree.

    I did the same thing except it was for AP Chem. And because I have some geniuses in my class, I get a 56% on my quiz /o/


    Yeah...I'm gonna go cry in a corner now (slipping to a C average QQ)

    The funny thing is that Calculus is so much easier than PreCal. I've spent the last 3 weeks doing derivatives, and that's as easy as multiplying the exponent to the coefficient, then subtracting 1 from the exponent. It gets trickier when you start adding in more and more terms and multiplication, but it starts to get fun after a while.


    Or that's just me being a math-dork.



    Good luck with PreCal, Gina !
