Another newbie...

Howdy.

I'm horribly awkward with introductions, so please bear with me...
My name is Katie and I'm an undergrad at a private Quaker college in Ohio. I'm currently finishing up my sophomore year and I'm majoring in Mathematics and English. (I know, it's such a strange combination, eh? Heh.)
Unfortunately, I am pretty behind in my math. I'm taking calc II for the second time and I should have been finished with that at the end of my freshman year. Alas, for calc II brutally murdered me last semester...however, I have completely kicked its butt this time around. It's a great feeling.
Anyway, why math? Well, it's been a big part of my life since 7th grade. I love it. It's pretty much the only thing that I think I have a real shot at succeeding in in my life. I really don't have any natural talent, but I don't give up.

So...my awkward/rambling intro is over.
I hope to be active on this forum. It seems like a pretty good place.

I think you have natural talent for mathematics. For calculus II, did you study series?

Thank you. (:
And yes, I did. It was quite fun, if I remember correctly.

Welcome!

There are three types of people: those who never took Calculus II, those who had trouble, and those who lie when they say they didn't have trouble.

Ah, such true words about calc II! I'll have to remember that, haha.

Re: Another newbie...

Welcome to the forum!

Calc II is such a hodgepodge of topics, and if done correctly, makes your head spin!

Good luck with your studies, and hope to see you around.

Re: Another newbie...

@mrtamborineman -- I've been told by at least 3 of the other math majors at my college that calc III is easier than calc II. xD I have to hope that they're right!! lol
Thank you all for the welcomes. I like it here already, haha.
