    Panel 3 sums up what all those math problems looked like to me in high school.

    I remember the first time the teacher mention division and my classmates magically knew what that meant and how to do it!! It took my father days to give me a glimmer of an understanding. The good part was, I had so much trouble understanding math and spent so much time practicing, it stuck with me.

    When I was in high school I told my algebra teacher I wasn’t going to need it for anything. About twenty five years later and I still don’t need algebra!

    Jason would make a good engineer. Engineers will argue for days over how something will turn out when a 5 minute experiment would demonstrate it immediately.

    When I went to HS, I wanted general math. The nuns at the Catholic school changed it to Algebra because I was taking Spanish. Seriously, that’s what they said. I never did figure out the connection. And, of course, the nuns were next to God, so I was stuck with it which led to Geometry. Didn’t do well in either one. That explains my checkbook! :)

    Isn’t Paige only a Freshman in High School? I didn’t think Trig was taught that early- I didn’t have it until I was a Junior in HS (late 1960’s) and that was the class for the smarter kids (not Advanced Placement or “Honors”, but still the upper end). Actually I did fine with Geometry on; Freshman Algebra was the hardest one and I realized years later it was because of the teacher: most of the class was older students who had already flunked it 2 or 3 times, and he just assumed everyone there was going to flunk and didn’t really care much (I didn’t flunk).

    I used Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry every so often all through my work years (federal land management) and always enjoyed it then, and I still use them on occasion in simple landscaping around the yard, so I’d say they were useful (and always a good way to impress others). Actually, high school and college math were never as hard as my 6th Grade teacher threatened they would be!

    That is also the sine of 30º
