She sounds more like an anti-teacher! Have you tried Khan Academy? They're online tutorials, and are really great!

What I do is write down the sum using the method that the examiners want me to use, then work it out how I like to in my head. After a while you get used to it and find yourself writing what the people want to see whilst working it out.<br /><br />Sorry I can't be of more help with your confusing maths lesson.

Going into high school,...I understand how you feel. Going into high school, I basically was forced to skip a year of math. My middle school didn't have a real algebra I class and my freshman year we went right into geometry. I still don't understand how to manipulate square roots, and I'm in pre-calc.VictorianAndroidhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12307737533485085015noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2604527796483114347.post-62760533438042351372011-09-27T17:24:56.448-07:002011-09-27T17:24:56.448-07:00The note that says "Use distrubutive to get ...The note that says "Use distrubutive to get rid of ( )" means that you use the distributive property to get rid of the parentheses. For example:<br />2(3+y) The two gets multiplied by the 3 and the y so...<br />2(3+y) = 6+2y<br />If you had something like 2(3+y)=30 then you would distribute to get 6+2y=30 then subtract 6 from both sides. 2y=24 Then divide both sides by three. y=12 There's the answer.<br /><br />I hope I helped. I'm taking Geometry this year so I've been doing distributive for a while.

I got A's in those high school courses. I know a website that we could link up to and I could help explain whatever you're confused about.<br />If you're interested just email me at missmorbidpresents@hotmail.comHayleyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01349902756402469103noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2604527796483114347.post-23363704357374985542011-09-27T14:25:26.155-07:002011-09-27T14:25:26.155-07:00I'm sorry about that.

So now it's just statistics.<br /><br />Sorry.<br /><br />Maybe you should go to a tutor. Does your school have after or before school tutoring?Hayleyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01349902756402469103noreply@blogger.com
