visions of linear functions dance through my head…

Please kill me now, I’m actually dreaming about math problems. Now, I have a math review course every day of the week with homework assigned daily. Also, it is kicking my ass and bringing up all sorts of feeling of incompetency and stupidity when it takes me 3 tries to get a single problem right. Also, I know that I don’t really understand this stuff very well and feel that I’m almost wasting my time doing all of this if I’m not going to be able to pass the test because I can’t remember how to solve a particular type of problem for more than 48 hours. But, I’ll have to give it a try. Last night I was actually in tears because of a problem that I got wrong time and time again and the book was showing all the steps that I was using, except a different answer. I just couldn’t figure out what the hell was wrong with me. Then Chris comes in to give me a hand and it turns out that I was right and the book is wrong. Ahhh! I can’t deal with the book being wrong, because it’s the only thing that has a clue about what the answer should be. I solve things and can’t tell you if it is right or wrong.

sigh, I’m getting all stressed out about the placement test coming up in a few weeks. I feel like I won’t have enough time to take it and really work through the problems slow enough to avoid the endless mistakes that I make. and now, I’m having dreams about this crap. argh.
