Hey everyone, wanted to introduce myself and explain why I am here and what I want to gain out of being here. Firstly, I'd like to meet new people who share a love for math like I do. I want to declare that I am not of a very high level of math and am only just now at the age of 24 trying to re-take my GCSE Math. In 2007 - I got a grade D on my math course and i've had jobs and stuff since then, but for the past 3 years...I haven't been very well with finding out that i have asperger-syndrome but I know that doesnt make me ILL as such, but the depression, anxiety, aspergers all together and I didnt know for all this time about why im very socially-awkward and find it hard to be around people..i find it hard to be out in crowds and have no confidence or self-esteem and everything, I am not looking for sympathy, ill be okay if i can get help which i am looking for. the doctors and psychologists say im not ready for work and to be honest I agree, I normally work in Admin. but at the same time I'm frustrated the doctors are being slow in diagnosing and helping me to be honest so I have been unemployed for the past 3 years and I figured I should do math to get my grade up. giving me something else to focus on as well. so I went to the council and im doing adult-education for level 2 Math trying to get my grade up. there are a lot of problem areas that I need help with in understand and so this is why I am here.

Topics i'm finding hard at the moment...

Trigonometry SIN,COS,TAN all of that stuff.

Algebra

Surds on decimal numbers ie. surd 0.04 is actually 0.2 multiplied by itself. ect, the other ones. i have noticed a pattern that for the first lot...the square root appears to look like Square-numbers.

Data - the different types of charts and how to multiply and divide on them - for example a VECTOR 3-4 how id be able to multiply it

Basically i dont know where to start what should i do first? im in my adult-education class but they are actually doing foundation and i want to do higher but i dont know what to start with. I tried looking at past-papers and I can do some of the questions but not all of them and most of it I can't do so i wondered if i could find help here.
