What's the best way to pass math?

I'm a junior in high school. I'm taking math 3 and I've been failing all year. I've tried everything and I still don't understand math. None of it and I still have to take the sat, act, and pass the class. What are things I can do to better myself in math. I've tried tutoring.

try to apply math to your everyday life, as math is used all the time in life and it can be fun. it applies to shopping, counting money, cooking, chemistry in science, just find something you're interested in and try to apply it to the math you are having problems with. if this fails, getting a tutor or asking a teacher for extra help is the best method.

math sucks, I know, but to get better you'll need to do it over and over. make flashcards, create a study group, play a couple math games.

Ask your teacher if there is a pattern to what you are missing. It could be something simple.

Get a tutor. Ask the teacher to explain it to you, or for after school tutoring. Really, it just needs to be explained in a way that you understand, that's all. I can help ya out with a specific concept or something, if you want to ask it.

Admit that you need help and get a tutor. There is absolutely no shame in having a tutor. If you go to college, you'll notice that like 30% of the people use tutors(those are the smart ones).

for some people it just makes sence, but 2 others, its just hard. its your teachers fault, but they cant do anything about it. i think you need someone to teach it to you differently

In class, sit next to Poindexter. Just Kidding! If it was me, I'd get a book and learn at my own pace. But I wouldn't "cram," I'd take breaks every time I'd begin to get frustrated. These breaks could last, in my opinion, a half hour if not a day or two. Don't keep crammin if you're frustrated. I don't believe you'll learn that way. It is my firm belief that anyone can learn most any kind of math. Just believe in yourself.
