Why do you think you had such difficulty? Do you think that your difficulty had anything to do with your right- or left-brain strengths? Describe the situation and suggest ways that might have helped to make your learning experience more successful.
When I was in high school, many years ago, I struggled to learn Algebra. I was in tears sometimes, because I could not understand it at all. I had such difficulty at the time, because my brain had not developed to the point where I could make sense out of abstract concepts. I was still thinking like a child, in concrete mode. As a result, Algebra was very frustrating for me. however, my stepfather must have had tremendous patience. This way way back in the day, before the days of technology, maybe if the learning technology we have today, would have been available back then, I could have just gone to you tube or some other website and watched a video and followed all the steps. I had to follow the example problem as illustrated in the book, using the variables that were in the given problem, in order to get through it.
