What is wrong with me?

<p>Ok, first off, I'm not stupid. </p>

<p>I just don't understand my mathematical ability. I can do calculus easily, and even trigonometry, but yet I just can't get a decent grade on any of my geometry quizzes/tests. I mean seriously...I go for help every now and then and seriously understand everything on the homework and get most problems correct, but when I take the damn tests I can never seem to get a decent grade. It's always like a C. And they're not even that hard. I could get the problems right in a non-test-taking "atmosphere."</p>

<p>What the hell, you know? I've calculated a rocket's altitude using trigonometry and can solve complex trigonometric problems and fly through AP Calculus (self-study)...but right now, I have a 75% in my geometry class; all due to tests/quizzes. </p>

<p>I'm so much stronger in the humanities..but that doesn't mean I should get C's in math. It doesn't make sense.</p>

<p>What should I do? Why is this happening to me?</p>

<p>Try studying less astrophysics, I heard that can help.</p>

<p>Lol, I took a break on that. ...I just don't understand why I have to get such a poor grade on all the tests/quizzes.... it's so annoying</p>

<p>I am a GCE A level world topper in mathematics. So, value my suggestion. Practice is all you need if you want to score a high grade. I guess you are not practicing enough. Remember this, " 99% perspiration, 1% inspiration."</p>

<p>I will take a guess ...</p>

<p>Though there is certainly a lot of "math" in (higher) geometry, there is also the element of spatial reasoning in geometry - the ability to recognize, interpret, visualize and connect shapes and objects.</p>

<p>Some people are better at that than others.</p>

<p>In (art) school I was great at drafting and geometry, just fair in algebra and pretty bad at trig.</p>

<p>I'm great in algebra/calculus/trig and stuff like that, but so bad at geometry.</p>

<p>I'm a bad test-taker...maybe that has something to do with it.</p>

<p>Why are you on CC in school?</p>

<p>We have our own laptops</p>

<p>many people have that problem with geometry. just try as hard as you can, try to find an efficient way to learn (these are individual, so I can't really suggest anything...), and chug through it</p>

<p>Hmm... maybe you should be paying attention in geometry rather than playing on your laptop.</p>

<p>Hmm.... I don't use my laptop in geometry. I posted this during break. nice try.</p>
