So I have to take ONE MATH CLASS to fufill the requirement of general education(transfer), I haven't been to school for a long time, I forgot anything and everything about math, is there a math class which you don't need prior knowledge in math and don't do any calculating? Do such class exist? A class which deals with history or concept of math, perhaps? I can do with lots of memorizing.

Thank you in advance for your help.

How long is a long time? I was out of school 16 years when I went back to school. I had never advanced past pre-algebra in high school, and I didn't do very well in that. I'm now a computational math major and a math tutor. I don't tend to accept "I haven't been in school for a while" as a very good excuse for not performing in math classes. It's always struck me as a bit of a cop-out when I get it from the students I tutor. It's easier to say "I'm too old for this" than it is just to study.

But those might not count as math classes.
