F Trig

I just took a precalc test this morning on two of the 3 trig chapters in our book. I think I did okay, but is there anything else in the world as unnecessarily difficult? Mostly because I have a bad teacher, but damn...how does
tan2x = 2tanx/(1-(tanxtanx))...who the fuck realized this? Whoever it was, I hope they died a slow painful death.

Re: F Trig

I actually don't mind math itself, I just need a teacher who doesn't suck. I got the stuff after I read the book, but damn...I was memorizing so many formulas it was like taking a history exam.

Re: F Trig

As Jimmy Buffett sings from time to time:

"Math sucks (math sucks)
Math sucks (math sucks)
You don't even have to spell it, all you have to do is yell it
Math sucks (math sucks)
Math sucks (math sucks)
Sometimes I think that I don't know that much--But math sucks!"

Re: F Trig

Stats is a bitch. The first stat class I ever took was a 300 level class and was a required degree course. I must say though, once you're brain "gets it" you are set.

Re: F Trig

heh, don't go into electronic/electrical engineering then

once you take calc you can learn to figure out all the formula's from each other (if you want), so it's possible to memorize almost nothing and still be able to get all the answers. You've got be real careful to understand how to play with the equations without changing their meaning though.

yeah my undergrad stats prof said it's like learning a new language, but once you "get it" you're good to go.

I never really got it completely, but enough to get through.
