I'm a Computer Science student taking a Calculus course for this semester. I'm doing very well with a high GPA, though I don't consider myself a smart student. I just memorize the facts and do the tests ( I know this is not good).
I would like to make the fact that English is not my first language the problem for my understanding of Calculus, but it's obviously not. I can understand English very well, but I cannot understand my Calculus course.
Am I the only one? Do you have any successful stories that can motivate me and lead me on the right path?
Note: I honestly don't read my calculus book as often as needed, I just go straight to the problem and try to solve it
I'm on a self-pace course so I can take a little bit longer on this unit. I'm trying to find the motivation to continue this course and not stay behind.
