So i"m going to fail Calc 2 and then drop out of school I think
    #4041651 - 04/11/05 05:37 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Well I've already failed 2/3 tests, soon to be 3/4 tests. I've been taking math classes for 2 years now and only have 1 credit. I failed Calc I, I passed Calc I, I dropped Calc 2, and now I'm about to fail Calc 2. I need Calc 2 for every single major here at Georgia Tech, so if/when I fail this course I'm just going to drop out. This is rediculous and it's probably giving me ulcers.

Sometimes you need to go out into the world and find inspiration to
study what you come to love. Don't ruin your chances of coming back
to school by trying to study something you don't believe in.

hey i've been where you are many times
i know that feeling, that stress, that discouragmen and everything quite well

usually i just toally flip out before the final and barely sleep and study a lot and pull a c somehow

but really
no need to drop out of school for just one class
as bad as it seems at the moment, i guarentee that its not that big of a deal to fail a class really


you can just take it again, and it will be a lot easier the next time around too

and if you get a tutor the next time things wont be as overwhelming

dont drop out, just relax and know that it will be ok
(and oh yea...fuck calculus)

Lol. I don't have a choice. I have to take this class and pass it. Everything here at Georgia Tech besides like...English and Economics requires Calc 1 and 2. I'm tired of this shit, I really am. I'm trying to study what I love but I just can't. Too much god damn core.

just try to relax, and get a tutor next semester

if calc 2 is the last calc you have to take then its not too bad

i know how you are feeling though...its a really shitty feeling

:thumbup:

My advice exactly. I went to University right out of high school and I was a faculty slut jumping around every year. Now I have 3 days left of classes and I only found something that remotely interests me in my last semester at school.

Take some time off. It is a big decision figuring out what you want to study. I don't understand the people that push you to get it as soon as possible, go back when you find something that picks your interest.

And don't drop out, you can probably go to your faculty office and ask for a leave of absence I think for up to one year. Do that instead.

see if you can take it at a community college and transfer the credits. some colleges will let you transfer up to like 60hrs. It's a lot cheaper and usually a hell of a lot easier. Unfortunately my school wouldn't allow my calculus credits to transfer, so I had to take it all over again.

fuckin PSYCHOLOGY!

has nothing in hell to do with Calc 2. It's just a weed out class so they can crush all the people who are really interested in their major and get the ones that know how to calculate and sell them to big corporations.

Transfer. Georgia TECH doesn't sound like a psychology school.

I dont have the credits or the (soon to be) GPA to transfer anywhere. This is such a bullshit situation.

Speak to an advisor. It can't be THAT bad.

My school has a progam called academic fresh start or something.
you'll have to repeat all your credits, but you can probably start your
degree over with a clean GPA.

I bet you can beg someone to let you into a different school. It can't
hurt too much to apply.

Calc 2 is the hardest math class until Differential Equations 2, but there's no reason why anybody with a functioning brain shouldn't pass calc 2 on the second try. So just suck up the F and go at it again next semester. It's not like failing Calc is going to fuck up your prereqs for other classes. That would be the only reasonable excuse to drop out because of a math class. If I had failed any math classes it would have set me back a YEAR.

Don't drop out, Georgia Tech is a good school to have a diploma from. Just start looking to transfer if you absolutely can't handle the math. There are some schools that will take ANYONE. Or take a break, a semester or a year, and get your priorities in order then take another crack at school.

I'd rather take a break. Get a job..give non-school life a try.

I'm just tired of school.

How badly did you fail the first 2? You can still manage a D, just study your ass off. Your defeatest attitude won't help the situation. Buckle down and look at this as a challenge. You can do it!

Good luck.

It might be your teachers explanations that make it difficult for you. I tend to teach myself rather then to let a teacher do it, I dunno how you think though, maybe get in a study group in the class as peers can do a better job of explanation better then teachers can at times :grin:.

Try taking it over the summer if you can, it will be shorter and you will have it every day so you will really be focused. See if your school a. has summer programs or b. accepts credit from other schools. Don't be discouraged, good luck!

I'm already taking Biology over the summer, and I already have Calc 2 every day in this Spring semester.

And the book is trash. The whole class knows its trash. It's written like a physicists thesis, the answers in the back are a.) incomplete (like 2 out of 40 problems) and they b.) dont match up (section 4 problem 1 doesn't match up with 4.1 in the back)

The whole thing is fucking hilarious.
