    Default Some school help?

    This is going to sound really bad. But I need some math help.
    I'm just gonna come out and say it. Trig just doesn't click with me. I have a feeling that this is a combination of things. Part or it being bad math teachers in the past who haven't taught enough. My teacher is a transferred teacher. She moved down here from another state. She came to my school and when she was going over some to make sure we knew it. She pretty much said that our teachers didn't teach us anything. Which is true. The only things I remember doing are the things I went and learned myself. I feel like that has played a big part in me having trouble.
    Another I feel is just that I don't understand I am always trying. I'm constantly reading through my notes, but I can not seem to understand. Like it doesn't click with me.

    All this cosine, sine, the circle with the degrees and pi on it, special triangles, all of that. It just doesn't click with me.
    I know some people are really good at this. But this is one of my weak areas.

    So I'm asking if anyone here has resources or anything they can post or PM me that can help me understand this stuff.
    Please and thank you.

    I know you're on xat a lot, and chum, Jew, demon, smlr (many xat regulars) are all really good with math. Shoot them a pc. Hell, chum is in math club lol.
    As for me I struggled with college algebra junior year so don't ask me for help

    Thanks Beav. Didn't even think about that.

    Chum we'll have to have an omegle math session!

    Dude, get a Ti-Nspire CX CAS. Best 150 bucks you'll ever spend, and with your programming skills, you can write some amazing programs on it.

    I value it more than my phone and laptop (it's that fucking good).

    You're in pre-calc, right?

    I presume you're doing the unit circle and the trig with it. PC me on xat sometime and I'll explain it; I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging, but I'm one of the people in my calculus class that truly understands trigonometry. I'll explain the theory behind the stuff as best as I can.

    If you want to be a programmer, you need a good grasp of trig for most 3D math.

    I don't want to take shortcuts. I want to actually understand it. I agree that they are nice ones. But I feel I would be to distracted in class playing on it rather than trying to understand the material.

    How much do you know already? Do you at least know the unit circle? Come on Xat and I'll be happy to help you.

    That's what it was! I never learned that. Lolol. It's apparently supposed to be known. Lol.
    I never learned it. We kinda covered it not much though. I told you, we're behind at my school. Lol. Teachers focus on the EOCs. Not the material. You know?

    I never meant for it to be a shortcut. I intended for it to be a tool that you can use to understand the material.

    When I write programs for mine, I have to figure out how the whole system works and then break it down to make something with it, that's what I was getting at. You're good with programming, so I figured this would help.
