Well, I took "Multidimensional Math" w/ Linear Algebra and Calculus 2 at the same time over a 6 week period for the Summer session.
It was a disaster. I don't think my Algebra and Trig are good enough
Is this the main reason students fail Calc? Because their pre-Calculus is just shoddy? I did well in pre-Calc stuff by itself, barely passed Calc 1, and struggled through Calc 2, getting a little bit of each concept down, but I'm not proficient in any specific section (Integration, Log functions, Sequences/Series, etc) I basically died toward the end of the semester in both classes, being crushed by the workload and just not "getting" some presumably basic stuff the instructor was talking about during the Finals review. I just could not at all manipulate trig functions or even polynomials and stuff at will.
I'm retaking Calc 2 this Fall and before the new semester starts I'm wondering if I should look over all the Algebra formulas and stuff. Feeling really low right now, almost as low as my GPA drop.
