The Math Experience – Part 2

I spent the entire day working math problems in preparation for the first exam in my Contemporary Mathematics class. Honestly, I don’t ever remember working this hard on any math class I took when attending WSU thirty-two years ago!

I have resolved to never take an online math class again! In such a class, the major pathway to learning is reading the book. Where as I learn more easily by hearing something explained or seeing it done, I am at a bit of a disadvantage.

Today’s experience leaves me to conclude the following:

1.) Thank God I never majored in math
2.) The subject of mathematics has either become more difficult over the years or I have become a lot dumber
3.) I need to rethink my plan that studying math might be fun

I'm glad you are the guinea pig on this matter - I'll take your word that studying math MAY not be fun!
