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.
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.
