I'm not impressed at all.

Those "Asian kids" you're stereotyping, don't do it without breaking a sweat. They just actually study, unlike you.

Honestly, what math are you doing in a GE Chem class that is so difficult? I can't imagine it's much more difficult than plug n chug and unit conversions

You're seeming to forget that not everyone can learn or do math well. I was in special ed from K-12 and was in a "math skills" class in 12th grade, which I think was either pre-algebra, algebra, or a mix of the two. I was also told that I had a learning disability in math in either late junior high or early high school. I can't learn math above algebra, man. I can remember a segment of the work if I study it with a partner long enough, but after a day, the knowledge is gone.

Speaking of Asian kids, I remember in high school in a study hall, there was this Asian dude that would sit across from me doing advanced math and he was smiling half the time while doing it. Of course, not all Asian kids are actually math experts, but that dude was a walking stereotype.

You can't learn math above algebra? Really? More like you just don't want to.

Or math education has failed him because it is mostly done all wrong.

okay, that doesn't mean he lacks the ability to learn math. Unless he does actually suffer from some form of mental disability/retardation

I wager that either he wasn't told he has a disability in math or that whoever told him that doesn't know what he/she is talking about. Usually people have a learning disability in general (learning anything), not just a particular topic. That is an extremely hard thing to diagnosis.

If he wants to call it a learning disability in math itself, then it is likely that it is merely due to the thing I stated previously.

I haven't thought about it much. I'll consider seeing it if there is good reception.

A bit. I'm almost done with chapter 2 and it has been pretty fun so far.

lol @ racism

Also I like math as I'm a Chemist.

Life should get better as you age, if it doesn't, then you're doing something wrong.

Chemistry has nothing to do with math.

Yeah, if you are born into a shitty living situation and you just can't get out of it as you get older, then it's your fault. No.

...uh you have to know some sort of math to do chemistry. And it gets more advanced as the chemistry advances

That would be applied mathematics. Not the same as mathematics. The applied mathematics gets more advanced. I'm a physics major going on to graduate school in mathematics. You don't need to know anything about mathematics itself in order to do chemistry or physics.

By being intellectually dishonest. Committing intellectual suicide.
