Mathochism: One more down

One woman’s attempt to revisit the math that plagued her in school. But can determination make up for 25 years of math neglect?

I’m done with the final, and all I can say is damn. Wait — make that da-yum.

That was one bear of a test! There were 66 problems, plus two extra credit, and we had three hours. Three hours may sound like a lot, but that’s less than three minutes a problem. And some of those problems were 5- or 6-minute problems!

Also, by the time I got to problem 50, my brain was starting to tire. None of the problems were hard, exactly, but with so many, they started to blur.

Blegh. Well, it’s over. I am hoping that I only got 10-12 wrong, so my B is assured.

Overall, it’s been a good, but tough, class. I have a month and a half to recover, then I go into my final Mathochism chapter.
