This class was tough.
Math has always been a hard subject for me but luckily I had an understanding and caring teacher to help me understand what was being taught. The class was very fast paced which made it difficult for me to keep up. She had office hours before and after school so I used that to my advantage to get in all the extra learning time I could.
The highlight of this course was when I successfully learned something and it showed in my test scores. It was a good reminder that good things happen when you study hard and do your best. Math is a very complicated subject that sometimes makes people feel like they want to give up. When you feel that way, turn it into motivation to improve your math skills as much as you can with the resources you have.

Advice for students:
If you are going into this class with a background similar to me, and have no confidence in your math skills, don't give up. Do what you can to stay on top of your work and get help when you need it. Its better to at least try to understand something than to not try at all. Teachers will see the effort you put in and try to help you the best they can. They want you to be as successful as you want to be.
