If all you are doing is memorizing your history, then you are learning nothing.
I always had to work at math. I did alright, but it certainly isnt a natural skill.
Get yourself a good study partner, sometimes they can help you see how they get it.
I understand the point of history is to learn from other people's mistakes, but I'm only talking about learning it in school.
I dont know what history they teach these days. We only had our shoolbooks and encyclopedias to learn by. And some of us learned from our elders. What i wouldnt have given to have so much information, immediately, at my disposal.
And...arent you allowed calculators in class?
Calculators can only help so much, so there is still a need to understand how to do the math.
I hope so.
I lost the grip on maths since I was little then hated it, but hey I'm awesome at biology.
I hated math - definitely not one of my strong points. I only took it because I had to. Absolutely did NOT like algebra, and only memorized my way through geometry. That is why I had an accountant who did my 'stuff' for me when I was self-employed.
Dang - wish you had been in my class! Weird thing is that I'm about the only one in my family that isn't good at math - but none of them were good in sales, so I guess things work out like they should.
If you understood the material in history, you would find it to be more interesting and easier to understand. Getting into the reasons why event occurred is far more interesting than simply learning that events occurred.
history is hard for a lot of people, look at the amoutn of people who support abortion, using literally the same arguments that where used to justify jew genocide, black slavery and other killings of mass numbers
