I was good until pre-algebra, and then I found it hard. Um, I'm not going to lie to you, it's not an easy subject.

I took algebra 1 in 7 grade....quite sometime ago :P but I don't think it's to hard. Just pay attention and you should catch on pretty easy. If you ever have any questions pm and I'll try and help. Oh and don't be afraid to ask others for help! Don't dig yourself into a hole just cause you're embarassed to ask...I've seen quite a few people do that.

Yeah, ask a lot of questions. Oh, and DO YOUR HOMEWORK. I HONESTLY CANNOT STRESS THAT ENOUGH! I'd offer to help you, but seeing as I ended the year with a C+, I don't think that is what you want.

When I took algebra one it was like one of my easyest math classes because you get to use graphing calculators. Although math has always been my best sub. so it might be harder for you.

No but freakin geometry is!!! Im soo lucky this is my last year of math science and history




Algebra and Geometry are supposedly total opposites. Few people are good at both. From what I understand, you are usually good at one or the other.

If you understand math (the important thing is understanding not memorizing) it shouldnt be too hard.



If you ever have a question about algebra 1 you can PM me.

Ah. It's like Pre-Algebra but harder. Harder. Harder. Study a lot and concentrate. Do your work. Don't slack off. Not even JUST A LITTLE. Best of luck.

I had a LOT Of trouble with Algebra. I don't now, but back then it seemed almost impossible for me to do. Every time I looked at an equation or something, I just wanted to run away. My mom made me sit there and practice over and over again. It really helped, a lot.



You know what's strange about me and math? Nothing clicks until the next year, or at least until the test/after the test. I got to Geometry, and suddenly everything about Algebra just made complete sense.



If you keep working on it (no matter how hard it is, no matter how much you don't understand), it'll get stuck into your brain someplace and will probably understand it right when you get to the test. Don't tell yourself that it's impossible to learn math.





p.s. I ended up in Calculus :ph34r:, all because I didn't give up.



Good luck!!!

Hey, if you ever need help with math, pm me, k? :)
