Higher math to go with higher degree

  1. Hello,
    I was wondering if some one can give me some insight about a problem I am having with math 112,pre-calculus algebra.I need it or finite math or any higher math to get into the BSN program and I am sure to get into the CRNA program.The problem is,I have tested positive for Dyscalcula,its like dyslyxia for math.certin math I can do,others I can not.I am using a TI-89 right now with acomodations from the schoos ADA office.The real math I need to know,I have it down with my simple TI-30X,i AM POSSIBLY THINKING OF GEOMETRY as my higher math,it uses logic and not complex formulas,but I don't know.I have a learning disability in math,but I do well in every thing else,my GPA is 3.5.I just do not know what to do about the math,can some one help me.
    regards,James

    james- i understand and appreciate your aspirations but i think you need to figure out someway to master math if you want to be a crna. you will need to do many med calculations and deal with chemistry as well.

    you will only help yourself long term if you take a precal/algebra type class now. it well help you understand the math you'll be dealing with in the crna program better.

    is there any type of tutoring for this.... like dyslexics use?

    Tanks,I guess I will just have to suffer through this,I will make it,I did for algebra I. Good thing my science grades are where they should be.

    I feel your pain ! Although I excel at other classes math has always been my weak point. I will be taking a statistics class soon and am dreading it. I wish you luck.
