Do you have any suggestions on how I could do better in Math? I am in college taking the Computer Science Degree, to become a programmer, but I am bad in math. "Any Ideas?" Sucess is the only option

Take and retake math classes. Utilize office hours. Contract a math tutor.

If you do all this and find that you just aren''t a math person, you might want to reconsider a major in the humanities.

Well... don''t drop your cs major just because you aren''t good at math. There are plenty of cs subjects that don''t require math. And unlike math and physics, you can often get away with just knowing how to implement a formula without knowing how to derive/prove it.

do the math. its one of those things that has a tacit component, just like riding a bicyle. practice, practice practice. get a solutions guide and do extra problems. If you are really bad at math sit in the class without actually enrolling the quarter before and do all the homework. it will come to you eventually.
