Bombed another math test yeet, im failing the class haha. On a brighter note, I'm in my last day of In-School Suspension now and I can feel the freedom coming.
Sorry you're having problems with math. I love math, but most educational material for it sucks.
And a lot of bright people freeze up when the pressure of tests is on. One of my brothers took his SATs in his 20s just to see what would happen, and his score was 400 points higher than when he was in high school. The only change was that nobody is going to look at or care about the SAT score you get when you're 27. ...but that doesn't mean I have any useful advice for how to take the pressure off yourself, if that's some part of what's hurting your performance.
The only other tip I have, which you may also have tried already, is looking for Youtube or Khan Academy videos on the topics that are causing trouble and see if any of them are better at helping you understand the stuff.
Good luck. You can use the internet and articulate yourself clearly here, I'm sure you're smart enough to understand the math.
I feel ya dawg, I could probably do the math, but frankly I just don't have the motivation. I'm a senior and I've already been accepted into my top university pick, not to mention I'll have to take calc again anyways considering Im not in AP or anything.
Oh then that's different. As long as it won't stop you from getting your diploma then I wouldn't worry about it. Cool.
