I have a 14 yr old daughter.I would be interested to see what you are studying if you can post some examples to compare US/UK.Tks!
Compared to UK, I think we lose. Here's what we did a week ago. Oh and this is the notes that I take everyday. Just multiply that by 3 more pages.
work on your penmanship, child! arent asians supposed to be tidy, industrious people who can do great things with only a little space?[:p]
but yeah-- i am doing the same math as you and i am a senior at university(almost done! wahoo!!!!) this will be my 4th time taking a math class. once (at 8am) my first year(failed to attend enough classes) second time i passed with a c, last term i had to withdrawl, this time i am taking it again and plan to kick this fuckers ass.
too bad i still have to take 105, huh?
097(2) 102(2) 105(?) it seems a little crazy that ive spent thousands of dollars to learn algebra, im a studio artist dammit. what the hell?
random math quote of the day:
Hey Romy, remember Mrs. Divitz's class, there was like always a word problem. Like, there's a guy in a rowboat going X miles, and the current is going like, you know, some other miles, and how long does it take him to get to town? It's like, 'Who cares? Who wants to go to town with a guy who drives a rowboat?
Damn, what the hell are you taking math for? Do you need to find the ratio of blue paint to yellow paint to get a perfect green?
If I'm gonna be a doctor, I might as well write like one.
its a requirement, much like med students have to take one art class, the real difference is that there is no 3 course track for beginning art like there is for math loosers like me. you have to build on math, if you cannot test out of 097/102, you have to start at 097, then pass it(500 bux each go around) then take 102 and pass it, then you get to take the math class that is actually required.
i think its silly that i have to take math 105 to get an art degree, but i understand the concept. they endeavor to have their students be well-rounded individuals when they receive their degrees, and math is a part of this.
what i dont understand is why in the hell it has to be a 3 course track! just throw the students into 105, theyll learn it. i think it brings in a lot of money, too. why would you want every student(25k of them) to only take one math class whenever you can corner 2/3 of them into taking 3 classes for the same result?
lets do the math, shall we?
25,000 students, one math class= $12,500,000
25,000 students, 3 math classes= $37,500,000
which would you make them take?
