I'm willing to spend whatever time it takes, and start right from the basics - the story is I've failed Math at a high school level twice, and I'm coming back to another local highschool to redo Math specifically
The thing is, I can never get interested in it in class because my base knowledge is so lacking, so most of the things they teach aren't intuitive to me
Pls help me succeed like Asian students /sci/
What I'm saying is, it'd be nice if you could recommend a textbook that covers these basics in a grounds up way, or something along those lines.
I don't know much about Math, but what I do know is that the textbooks we're provided with are not optimal for learning Mathematics.
Honestly, I would recommend Khan Academy. They offer to teach the basics in a very simplistic, structured way with plenty of example problems, video lectures, and solved problems to learn from. You can start from babby level and make your way to sophomore college level and slightly higher.
There is also a forum board to ask specific questions if any of the resources do not provide answers.
This book is good if you really need to go back to the very beginning.
Study this book, it's a classic of mathematical problem solving.
Seriously, any textbooks you'll find will have a lot of stuff you would only need to know if you were going into something math intensive or related to math. If you need to pass a simple algebra 101 test, the Dummies series puts it all very concisely and simply.
Though I will have to admit, gaining the utmost value from these will involve paper. Working out how to solve a problem until being able to explain it succinctly to others is your best bet. Instead of simply absorbing, regurgitating the information, absorbing, regurgitating the information, it's best to sit down and fully absorb the logic. Arrows, for me especially, help to understand the fluidity involved in mathematical processes.
Lol no NO I have a book vwo wisk B over there that sucked ass was written by some guy from uva. The problem is that the book provides no additional explanations so you need to find videos and explanations online.
If you need hi school math go to adult education if you sign up before 2016 you can do the state exam and follow adult efucation. Or just follow a math summercourse at uva or somewhere else
Like I said in my previous post don't study math if you sucked at it.
