Thanks a bunch for your responses, guys. As far as needed this material for my career, I highly highly doubt it. See, what I really want to do is
own a small business. I'm not totally sure what kind yet (Have some ideas), but I'm pretty sure that's what I want to do. The Math that I'm in
now is college algebra (That whole square roots of a #i+ some other number divided by square roots of other things, quadratic formula, etc.) I don't
see at all how this could possibly help me in a small business enough to matter THIS MUCH to the college. My uncle did terrible in high school,
didn't go to college, and he's a multi millionaire right now because of his business. My did didn't go to college, and he owns a small business
that's doing pretty well. I thought I was going to be paying for classes that would benefit me and teach me how to manage a business or something,
but now I'm about to have to reconsider my major because of a class I'm most likely never even going to need. (You can tell I'm still frusterated
It is good advice though...I'll definitely speak with my teacher about this. The problem is that there's a test tomorrow on material I don't
understand (I even tried using, like I said, this math help CD that comes with the book itself and is supposed to guide you through each step.) I'm
kind of stressing out about that, because on our last test the class average was a 40% (I got a 30% because I was sick the day before and she didn't
tell us there would be a test so I didn't study at all). I can't really afford to fail anymore tests. I might get away with doing bad on this one,
but after that I have do do really well on all of my tests.
Argh math sucks!
