I struggled with math and had to have tutoring when I took Algebra 1. I got along much better in geometry. Algebra 2 was a struggle and I decided to skip trigonometry even though my friends were taking it. I still got my B.A. at UCLA. What I really needed to know from algebra and geometry was covered in my eighth grade math class. I learned how to calculate area, perimeter, interest, and other practical things like gas mileage. We also learned basic formulas with practical applications in everyday life.
