College Math Assessment -
November 9th 2009, 03:26 AM

Math is pretty much the one thing that gets me everytime. I'm horrible at math. Thing is I want to transfer to a four year, so If I get put into lower classes I'll be wasting my time which I REALLY don't want to do. I need review. Can some of you give me the formulas in Algebra/Geometry and whatever else you think will help me? Please.

holy there are 10000000's of formulas you need to know what your doing but if you can tell me roughly i'll try and help, i'm doing an engineering/architecture degree so have a fair bit of maths

So, basically what I remember from geometry is...

Isosceles/Equilateral triangles
Opposite Angles/Parallel line angles
Some minor sin, cos, and tan usage
Circles fun

that was the majority of it, everything else was from a previous class or very common knowledge. Formulas for it that I remember:

Opposite angles are always equal
A line that goes across two parallel lines has congruent angles
sin = y/r
cos = x/r
tan = y/x
sin^2 + cos^2 = 1
two others I forget
circles:
A = [pi]r^2
C = (pi)d

algebra has too much to condense to a post, looking it up will definitely help. Geometry has millions of other easy little formulas if you don't remember them.

What you said about Geometry sounds familiar, could you elaborate?
I need to know algebra and some geometry. I don't really think I can handle any higher math...

Eh, Holly it isn't so bad . I started in a low math when I started college. 3 terms now and I only have 1 more that I have to take math . It's not a waste of time- trust me.
