This week we wrapped up on chapter six and started chapter seven. I understood what I was doing during chapter six but there were also parts that I found difficult to grasp because I would get them mixed up in my mind. When defining the definite integral using u substitution I would forget to take the antiderivative in order to solve the integral.
Once we began chapter seven thing began to seem clearer, and the things that we learned in chapter five as well. Everything keeps building on each other and at the time that I am learning it I struggle with it but once we start a new chapter and we build on it I start to understand. I think that I just need time to process what I’m learning and lately I have felt like somethings are just assumed to be known. Being able to talk through homework problems at my table is helpful to my understanding of the material because people are able to understand how to do math. Also seeing that others don’t completely understand everything is helpful just because sometimes I feel like I’m the only person that doesn’t know what is going on, so it is reassuring.
