*WARNING: CONTAINS RANTING*
Exponents, Absolute Value, Quadratic Equations, Inequalities containing absolute value, Linear Inequalities, Quadratic Inequalities, Operations with Radicals, and now "imaginary numbers"? :wtf Seriously, does anybody here understand any of this stuff? I just got my inequalities test back and I'll just say that it was not good, near failing as a matter in fact. I used to be great in math back in Junior High, but now it's become one of those subjects that really brings that average down. The stuff we have to learn is unbearably difficult and down right confusing, and the littlest of mistakes can throw an entire problem off. And all of this is for a big regents exam in June, which mandated by the state, so all of this is required.
So I need to ask some of our older members here, when you were in high school, was math such a daunting subject like it is now?
