Years ago, I took a solemn vow that I would never, ever, take a math class in college. That was a prerequisite for the major I would choose, and wouldn’t you know it? I’m taking three math classes next semester.
Yes, God does laugh when you make plans.
The three classes are: macroeconomics, quantitative analysis for businesses, and intro to financial accounting. And yes, they’re required for my business management degree.
I’m not sure what to expect besides math (and lots of it). Math was never my favorite in high school, and I did not go beyond the required three years (Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2). I wasn’t actually bad at it. I don’t know what it was about it that made me dislike it. I would just get frustrated and end up in tears when my parents tried to explain some concepts to me.
So I’ve been thinking about these classes….
I still don’t know what to expect, but I am planning on taking full advantage of the free tutors on campus if need be. The teachers at BC are also excellent at doing their best to help students succeed, so I know I can always go to them with questions. And I’ve been planning to break open the old textbooks at home to brush up before I head back. We’ll see if that happens…..
Otherwise, I’m really looking forward to this next school year. I’ll have a car, be president of RRL, and really be challenged by my classes. I’ll have all my goals to work on as well. We’ll see what I think once I’m actually in the middle of it 🙂
