Hey.(:

Hi everybody, my name is Vanessa
I absolutely love mathematics, but now I am having big problems with it. I keep on getting C's, D's and F's and well, I thought this forum might be helpful more me.
Haha. I hope it helps me a lot, because I am in a big problem right now trying not to stress on the End of Grades test on school. Okay, I am glad to be here, I'll be active, too.(:

Re: Hey.(:

So, what kind of math are you taking? And how long until the Big Test?

Re: Hey.(:

Algebra, okay. Is this 'Algebra I' (linear and quadratic equations, rational expressions, polynomials, etc.) or 'Algebra II' (polynomials, exponentials and logarithms, conic sections, synthetic division, etc.)?

July 21st -- so you actually have some time. that's good; too many people only ask for help at the very last minute.

Re: Hey.(:

I'm not in Algebra II yet; I'll be doing that in my 9th grade year. The reason I am active in this forum is because I am good at math (I have an A in Geometry right now) and I enjoy it, not because I need help with it or anything. I never thought of this forum as "improving your grades" (well, it probably does, but I don't think it makes as big of an impact). Helping with your homework, maybe. So I suggest you get a good book instead.

The Dummies series is a really good place to start off. They have a book on Algebra II (which, by coincidence, I have with me right now). I've read it before, and it's good. I would also take a look at your standards.

I wish you the best of luck on your test.

P.S. By the way, I'm assuming you are in the US and have no financial problems.

Re: Hey.(:

You may very well be able to pick up that or a similar book at your local library.
