It’s the simplest operations that trip me up.
I’ve been trying to get another website going that will be devoted to woodworking. Most of you reading this already know, and if you’ve been following for a while you also know math is what kept me out of college.
Intelligence isn’t the problem. I was in advanced placement English in high school, and probably would have majored in literature. I’ve heard that my problem is called “intellectual laziness”, the tendency to give up quickly when faced with an intellectually challenging task. Algebra bored me to tears. I know that’s an awful thing to say, and it could be argued that it held me back in life. To this day, I have never looked back and wished I had learned anything other than geometry. (Which I did well with, btw.)
Learning math is like learning another language. And so is website development. So it’s taking me longer to get my other website working properly than I think it should. I got this one working, after all.
I posted this today. Go ahead check it out, I’ll wait here…
Looks ok, right? Now click on the Home button in the menu bar.
You see my frustration? This is why I hate math. I came up with the wrong answer somehow, and now I have to “check my work”. If anyone has any helpful input, I’d love to hear it. Until then, I’ll be going through all the menu options and hoping the teacher sees me raising my hand.
