### Algebraic Equations

If you stop to ponder and wonder why,
I sit here pounding my head into my desk.

If you think to yourself: poor soul,
As I scream at the computer screen.

All I wanted, all I asked for,
All I paid for, was a degree.

Torture chamber,
Happiness sucker,
Straight-jacket fitter.

So simple and straightforward,
Or so the Doctor of the Math Fiends says.

Just look at it logically,
And the heavens will open up for ye.

I begged to be released,
All I paid for, was a degree.

Torture chamber,
Happiness sucker,
Straight-jacket fitter.

Algebraic Equations!
Be gone from ME!

10 weeks of soul-sucking torture that I 'willingly' signed up for.

Better you than me.
online now!
We found the fog lifted the final weeks...we was told, that was because you finally understood....stick it out, don't let it win...Niah
Relax and create a sonnet
to remember the steps by
and it will become clear.
In lieu of that take a
break and try again with
a relaxed posture.
When I got stuck on this subject, I was told to imagine I was working out my wages with (x) being the unknown total at the end....all of a sudden I saw the point of algebra....lol....Andrewxxx
amahlala, so glad to see you! i knew we could count on you. Here, this MAY (or maybe not) be of help to you..

I like the "So simple and straightforward,
Or so the Doctor of the Math Fiends says."...easy to say what you know...
oh math - one of the few things in the universe that always remains logical! it's a subject at which you can score 100% if you understand - and the best way to understand? is to go explain it to someone else! seriously, this works even if you try to explain it to a child things begin to click and add up in a way you didn't think of before. the person you explain it to will ask questions which you have to answer and eventually you understand yea, like a light coming on. wear shades - the light will be bright!
good luck with it amahlala, you can do it!
