My Introduction

Hello everyone!

I'll cut to the chase and explain to everyone why I am here. I am currently a college student at that is getting ready to enter the geology program at a local university. I have found that math is not really my specialty and found this site with a Google search.

I just recently completed a college algebra (MAC 1105) class with a "C". Being a geology major requires me to take up to Calc 2, Physics 2 and Chem 2, so I have a lot of difficult math ahead of me. I am taking the summer off from classes to focus on work and recharging my batteries, and during that time I would like to go back through some of the college algebra work as I know I could do a better job understanding it.

Look forward to talking with all of you!
Thanks from PRANOY KUMAR DAS

To make a long story short, I was a later entrance to college (24 when I started) and I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do. I met a guy who was a geologist, heard him talk about his job and decided it was something I could enjoy doing, thus I began my path.

My interest at this point is in the environmental sub field, things like hazardous waste remediation and the like.

Thanks! I will definitely take you up on the PM. I know this will be a difficult journey but I am confident in my ability to handle it as long as I have a little help.

Oops. The "at" was leftover from a sentence I deleted and I must have missed it.

Been enjoying my summer off, but I'm signed up for this class in the fall. Different school than the one I'm at now, but course code is the same.

MAC 1114 Trigonometry
