I've already had behavioral statistics but this stuff is the pits. I got so mad last night after the kids were sleeping because I couldn't figure out how to do something on my *@&# statistical calculator. Part of my homework on the calculator I have to take pictures of and print them to prove I'm doing it. That alone infuriates me.
I don't mind learning something like this, but the amount of busy work is tedious and overwhelming on top of having a mandatory lab at 8 in the morning once a week ...
I hate this class.
I don't say that lightly.
I remember sitting in Mrs. Catherine's second grade class doing the old kill and drill subtraction problems. Mrs. Catherine played the old 33 rpm record that was old, static-y and in my 7 year old mind that old vinyl was the bane of my existence then. I dreamed of grabbing the vinyl, running far away and jumping up and down on it. Andrew, sitting in front of me, had been bumped up from 1st grade because he was labeled as boy genius, turned around and told me I was so stupid because I used my fingers for subtraction.
I am 40. I still remember that.
Math phobia is real. It is huge. Those who are blessed to just "get it" have no idea what those who don't go through.
I have a 3.6 GPA - I am not a dumb person. I just don't "get" math. Unfortunately one of my children struggles with math.
I wish I could wave a magic wand for him.
