An F?  Seriously? Shocked angel  I think you need to hook up with a tutor my friend!

Speaking from current personal experience, sometimes a tutor isn't enough. Right now I think a lobotomy is the only thing that would help me.  laugh

I've spent hours studying (with and without a tutor!), and it's just not sinking in.

Not every tutor is the same since not all tutors can adapt to the learning style of their clients.  There are many myths as to why people are unable to learn math; perhaps you can see yourself in one or more of them?  From the University of Alabama:

Quote
Performance in mathematics courses often is undermined by faulty beliefs regarding the subject and one’s own abilities. These erroneous beliefs — or Math Myths — hamper both effort and self-confidence and should be examined in order to acquire a more productive approach to mathematics.

http://www.ctl.ua.edu/CTLStudyAids/StudySkillsFlyers/Miscellaneous/mathmyths.htm

I always find it interesting how many reasons people create when I tell them I'm struggling in Math.

Person A: "You're struggling in Math because you don't have a tutor."

Me: But I have a Tutor.

Person A: "Are you paying them? You should never pay a tutor."

Me: I'm not paying them. I go to the Student Learning Center and a woman from my parish who has her degree in Mathematics is helping me.

Person A: "That's the problem, you should pay a tutor. They will help you."

My favorite is my father's line. "How can you not understand this? This is math for idiots!"

Thanks Dad. Love you!  Kiss

I don't understand why it's unacceptable to not be good in math? As the website indicated, no one thinks less of a person if they are not musically gifted, but because I suck at Math, I'm some kind of idiot?

Well, I have news for you. I'm great in music, but suck at Math.

Unfortunately, the Dean of the College doesn't care, and I need to pass the class to graduate. I'm going to take the class over in the summer, back to back with Statistics. Hopefully I'll do better.

That's what my mom said, too!

Then again, my test was multiple choice... and I tried plugging the answer in, really!

Don't ask me to carry a tune.   Wink  At least at my College, Music 101 wasn't a requirement.   Smiley

I wish it was! I just recorded an album, and U'll make a new thread/post for it. It's guitar/instrumental. Tongue

ANYWAYS... Yeah, uh. I'll try harder next time. Go slower. Or something.

Ahh, 2AM, and I'm still up. Another sleepless night, mayhaps? Yes, I think so. But for how long will I sit in front of this darn computer waiting for people to post, when I could be off reading or doing something else constructive. Ahh well, at least I'm also listening to music while I wait.

haha I can't sleep either, wait I don't want to sleep I'm enjoying my time off.  I guess I'll sleep really hard tomorrow night but until then I'm up, you can't buy back the hours you're not working for the man.

Yep.
It'll be a digital release. an hour of me goofing off on an unplugged guitar.

Everything else I have is "black metal", and something I am not now really proud of it - I do admit it's good music, still.

Maybe someone can conduct a research study on the effects of practicing TM while listening to Metallica. I bet even the demons would be confused by that! Wink

Hahaha! I think it's everyone else! Just kidding. I had a great day, I got a lot more people to follow me on tumblr. I went from 5 followers to 9, one asked me a question, said that I ahd 5 and she got 4 other people to "follow" me.

At least they'll look pretty!  laugh  laugh

On a related yet unrelated side note (after all, this is the random postings thread) I've really enjoyed the images from the Hubble Telescope in my Astronomy class this semester. They are just so beautiful! It's mind blowing (to me, anyway) that we can have such wonderful images transmitted to us all the way from space!

The more I learn about Space and the Universe, the more amazed I am at God's creation. Smiley

And on a further tangent... I am really tired right now. I had a Biology exam at 7:30 this morning, so I've been up since 5. I asked if I could get my Café Americano served intravenously at Starbucks, but they weren't willing to accomodate me.  Cry  Wink

And on a further tangent... I am really tired right now. I had a Biology exam at 7:30 this morning, so I've been up since 5. I asked if I could get my Café Americano served intravenously at Starbucks, but they weren't willing to accomodate me.  Cry  Wink
What poor service! What happened to "the customer is always right"?

I don't know... they mentioned something about coffee not being safe to flow through the blood, but I just dismissed it as them being difficult. Tongue
Speaking of coffee, I like mine black, but this nescafe "stuff" isn't all that good.

I just noticed that there's a "show desktop" button in Windows 7.  Smiley I missed that function with Windows XP.

I've got XP, and it definitely has a "show desktop" button in the bottom toolbar.

There are ways of removing and restoring that icon.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

100. Like a bee one should extract from each of the virtues what is most profitable. In this way, by taking a small amount from all of them, one builds up from the practice of the virtues a great honeycomb overflowing with the soul-delighting honey of wisdom.

Papist just has the joy of teaching these children math. He doesn't have the added pleasure of raising them. (Although the parents may think otherwise!)  Wink  laugh

I'm willing to try anything. Doubling up the amount of coffee works wonders.
