Math requires different study processes. In other courses, you learn and understand
the material, but you seldom have to actually APPLY IT. You have to do the problems.
Math is a linear learning process. What is used one day is used the next, and so forth.
(In history you can learn chapter 2 and not 3 and do OK on 4. In math, you must understand
the material in chapter 1 before you go on to chapter 2.)
Math is much like a foreign language. It must be practiced EVERY DAY, and often the
VOCABULARY is unfamiliar.
Math in the university is different from math in high school. In college, you go only
two or three times a week to your class. What took a year to learn in high school
is now covered in only fifteen weeks.
