Tl;DR How do I contend against people who see me as absolutely inept because of my limited math skills?

>I flunked pre-cal in college

because I was unable to comprehend why the distance between 1 degree and the next, was exactly the unit of 1 deviation, instead of 1 set measurement

>90% of my family has careers in math

>majority of coworkers are likewise better at math because of seniority (warehouse/inventory job) thus basic arithmatic is required, failing at it... barely two weeks in.

Why is it that people who are mathematically enclined, are the hardest people to get along with?

How I do become less retarded if fractions, decimals, pemdas, get so fucked while doing prolonged equations to just get the answer be fucking 1/1?

I can’t help you but I feel your pain OP. I’m a severe brainlet too

Justin Davis

Theres gotta be a way to be succesful and likewise happy without math... And simulteneously be a normal person.. As in not an art hoe, poe hoe, or an actual hoe...

Josiah Edwards

I am awful atmath. Majored in cs. Got through by the skin of my teeth and a bit of luck and cheating.

Now? Im too terrible to ever get a job.my math is horrible.even simple arithmetic givesme pause. I have to use my fingers

Isaac Brown

most irl only requires you can count things and give people the correct change.

Jacob Williams

I mean if you plan to be a cahier or an accountant yes. But like as far as careers go.. Having something like this with basic arithmitic sounds like suicide.

Christopher Collins

what im saying is theres lots of careers out there where you need little math. if youre insisting you can only do a career that requires math then fine, your problem.

Robert Morales

What line of work pays as much as a stem career? Without being a stem career.

Evan Flores

I don't know im not a job search engine. off the top of my head, lineman. im sure there are hundreds of careers out there.

I’m as bad at math as you are. I went into agriculture because I at least had sense enough to not pursue a career that was dependent on understanding math.

Robert Gomez

Thats not what im asking for

I wish i majored in some thing i enjoyed man. Fuck...

Jaxon Garcia

Don't dentist make a ton of money?

Logan Morris

Being a top lawyer. Seriously lawyers suck at math. Not that it's easy but biglaw starts at $180k+ and will get you over $300k in 3-5 years after bonuses

Camden Morris

yeah, but a phd in math gets you 300k starting, any job you want

William Cook

Develop different skills. I've always done well at math but I'm a fucking moron with everything else, and I feel just as inept as inferior as you do. Nobody's an expert at anything, if you want to feel proud of your knowledge, find a subject area you're interested in and decently adept at, work towards developing meaningful skills in your spare time, and apply it to your life/work/etc.

Caleb Morris

>phd in math gets you 300k >starting >any job you want

I can only laugh so hard

Angel Diaz

>just find something youbare interested in

Its nothing.

Levi Thomas

Going into the medical field requires a lot of math.

Tyler Perry

I suppose, but my inteterests are guns, games, tech, animation(need a lot of money for this one), I am on a more often than not basis, told I am a good orator/writer, but those people scrape by doing what they do, I know that the other user thinks math major is a guaranteed win, but the lowest salaries for people with stem degrees are typically higher than by the average

Ayden Sanders

Lawyers only get to that point after a decade of doing shity jobs, e.g. like saul, from breaking bad/better call saul

Adam James

should people bad at math just not breed and die unhappy

Daniel Price

They should

The logically incapable are unworthy

Hunter King

I feel bad because I agree but they didn't ask to be born useless

Parker Rogers

Neither did downies, but it's still logically just to abort/euthanize them due to their severe psychological disorders. They're essentially an economic drain of resources, not to mention if they were born more stunted it would most likely mean they suffer some degree of pain or trauma due to their inabilities.

It's better to just rid this planet of them, they are defective

Eli Myers

>tfw good at proofs and abstract maths >horrible at basic arithmetic >horrible at pre calc and calc and any of that applicative math >horrible at programming

I just dont understand

Christian Nguyen

Stop being an NPC and learn to solve problems on your own

Juan Torres

>He keeps making this thread

Julian Ward

Here is some positive advice:practice and hard work and trump natural talent.

Take it from someone who failed college algebra 3 fucking times. Adderall and consistency win the battle.

Kayden Young

Whats with the non sequitur?

Alexander James

Find another skill that’s useful and go balls to the walls with it a lot of people I know are good with math but only have the bare minimum understanding of history so I compensate and learn as much about history as I can.

Ian White

>to just get the answer be fucking 1/1?

Well, if it were all the time, then maths would hardly be a thing, now wouldn't it?

Your problem is not that you have limited math skills.

Rather, it's that you don't think your own perception is relevant in terms of mathematical calculations, and that's why you've chalked up the entirety of calculus to an equanimity between a deviation and a set measurement.

Take a look at Zeno's arrow paradox and tell me there's not a point at which you have to personally draw a limit.

That's where calculus begins.

Elijah Howard

Two ways:

>Work hard enough to improve your math skills

>Become very good at other things You think anyone would call Stephen King or Freud dumb if they sucked at math?

Juan Hall

>You think anyone would call Stephen King or Freud dumb if they sucked at math?

Okay is this a joke? Because neither of those were known for their math skills.

I honestly am lolling if you're joking tho.

I'm pretty sure both were storytellers, though.

Maybe I've failed Poe's Law. Still funny. No regerts.

Cooper Barnes

Become an accountant, the math is easy

Connor Brooks

Load up khan academy and slowly work your way from elementary stuff to college material. A lot of math later on is just repeated application of simpler stuff so as long as you have a strong understanding of the foundations and you regularly practice it then it shouldn't be too difficult.
