Leedle leedle lee! I'm Patrick now, because I literally feel so dumb! Why is the Malaysians' Form 1 (basically eighth grade for Americans) syllabus so long and difficult? We start off easy, yes, with integers and factors and stuff like that. But tHEN, it accelerates reaaaaaaaaaaaaaally fast. Suddenly, from integers, we're thrown into simultaneous linear equations!? Thank the heavens we don't have to learn trigonometry yet. But of course, they throw a complex diagram at us, asking us to find x and y from this stupid thing that tells us that "Oh, lines PQR and RST are both straight lines!" because straight lines are apparently 180° if it makes up an entire diagram. Those are okay, but what if one of the lines aren't straight? Much, much frustration... I wonder if June had to learn all of this. This is pure frustration at the max!
... I hate math.

Yes! I don't know if you can get a translation or not, but I find Khan Academy very helpful for math, coding, and economics.
Okay, went ahead and looked up some stuff there.
Nothing! I couldn't understand for the life of me what terms they were using :spinnyeyes: I'm too used to learning math and science in Malay T.T If there's one downside about being able to speak three languages, it's that you're going to be horrible with translated math/science terms xDDDD Thank you anyways! :heart:
