"I have to be taught and I give up easily on math problems."
"They're just hard and you have to think a lot for them. I can do them, but it's just I don't like them."
"I was too lazy…it's a lack of motivation."
"I have to put in the effort and I was kind of lazy."
"I got lazy and didn't do my homework."
"I just make silly mistakes on the assignments. I still do that."
"A 4. Cuz I wasn't the best, but I did like it and I did get good grades in it."
“We go in at lunch every day. [I’m] open to questions then. But in class it’s harder and I get embarrassed to ask in class. I want to keep it between me and the teacher. I don’t want anyone to think I’m an idiot.”
“Probably a 3 as well because they don't think I'm a genius at it, but I'm not failing or anything like that. It's just like I don't think I could explain it to somebody else, like I understand it, but I couldn't pass on the information.”
"The last test I was like, 'OK, I got this, I can do this.' Like I was doing the review over and over and I got everything right a couple times. I took the test and I bombed it. I got like 55%. And I was like, 'Oh my God. Now I can't do this.' So basically, I've given up on that class. So I'm like, 'Fine. I'll bring it up next semester.'"
