General Middle School High School Undergraduate
"Yeah, like when I went from elementary school and I'd had pre-algebra and stuff, and I felt so confident, with my old teacher. And then I moved up to middle school and I had algebra…and it was honors so like it was really hard for me. And then yeah, I felt I just wasn't good in math anymore. It was just harder."
"Basically, I'm just waiting for it. I mean I don't know how to handle that class exactly. Basically, I mean like I think I understand it, but like I know I'm not going to understand it when the test comes. Like I'll do fine at home and then I'll bomb every test in math, all the time. So basically the solution is holding out through the semester and then dropping out."
"You feel like you know it and you do well on the homework, and then you get to the test, and you just go blank."
"Yeah, it happens every year up to this year. It's always something different. If it's something that I'm learning and it's a big jump from what I just learned, it always seems to be a barrier."
"I never got the difference between different theories, so I always got them confused…I think it was the way she taught it too. It was always so compact, so much information put in front of you that it was a lot for me."
