I want to take a moment to thank everyone for their help with my struggle in math.

Sitting down and focusing on what was holding me back helped tremendously, and everyones advice was golden. Now I don't sweat it when I have to read over a chapter twice, and now I am surprisingly fast at it.

Oh, and by the way I am getting help at the college as well.

Good luck with this Dean.

Glad to hear it, & best of luck.
You should post something in the thread itself, so that people a) who read askme but not really meta, and b) who are reading through later, will hear the outcome of the story. It's nice when the thread sort of wraps up like that.

Before you consider switching majors to CS, dean, remember the first two syllables are 'com-pute'. ;-P

[ok, enough damage here, time to head over to Plastic]

People still read Plastic?

I guess so.

Glad to hear you're doing well. Now get cracking on Riemann!

I was a bit late to that, but I'm glad to hear you're feeling better about it all.

I seriously doubt there's a person alive who hasn't had struggles with some academic (or other) subject, which is probably why so many people could identify with what you described. Mathematics seems to be one of the most common subjects for these struggles. It isn't as hard as it seems, it just takes a little while to get used to that way of looking at the world.

Well, people still write on Plastic, anyway.

I try to apply new forms of math I learn to everyday situations now, and that really helps me out.
