I got the Math Class blues......

For those of you who don't know, I am a "non-traditional" student who is back in school again! This term has found me tackling my greatest nemesis....Math. I am enrolled in only 1 class which is sort of a combo of College Algebra, statistics with a nice dose of finance just for good measure. It was supposedly the easier of my 2 options. HA! I suppose that means I am complete numbers idiot. I have taken 1 test so far in this class and I made a humiliating 64 (class average was 59, so I guess I should be proud). This is the first test that I have made less than an 85 in since I returned to school and I am quite fond of my 3.91 GPA. I have received only one non-A since starting back a year and a half ago -- Economics, in which I got a stinking B, which dropped my GPA from a 4.0 to the lovely 3.91! I was an Art major all those years ago...this kind of thing is not my greatest strength.

Unfortunately things don't look as if they will improve with the test I am to take tomorrow. I think I really should have taken this class on campus as opposed to online...I just got all whinny about the gas prices and my kids are out of school so I didn't want to haul off to campus several times a week. I am wondering if I should drop it, but then I remember how much I paid to take it and I feel sick.


  1. ~~~hugs~~~
    I can sympathize on the math thing...I was never any good at it...who can blame you for wanting to save on gas for cryin' out loud!
    I'm sure you'll do what is best for you!

  2. Good luck on your test!!!

  3. Can you please balance my checkbook?????? Good luck on that test....Can't wait to hear about your next above average grade!!!! Go get'em, Belle Ah!

  4. Hey Belle-ah, I'm also "non-traditional" and I learned from some folks that math online was a no-no unless you really grasp the concept. I'd stick with it,

    As to being protective of your GPA, I'm in the same boat. I only received two non-A's since I returned to school, both were B's in Astronomy and Algebra. I hate Algebra, and I still have to take more of it but I'm putting it off.

    Do you need this course to satisfy requirements? What's your major? If you really need it, you've gone this far, summer is almost over, stick with it. You'll pull the GPA up next term. But if you really don't need it---I know you paid for it and it's too late to drop--but if it's really bugging you....

    Let us know, I know it's not easy for us but we keep plugging away don't we? There are a lot of us out there who feel your pain.

    Congrats to us on our hard work and great GPA! So one class screws us up, it's not the end of the world!

  5. Ugh, I hate school stress. I can remember it well. I hope you did well on your second test.

  6. Good luck with your test!! I hate math as well, but I'll send you some good vibes!

  7. Good luck, girl. I know you can do it!! I hate math, but I'm sending good algebra vibes your way!!


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
