Can I ascertain quantum physics if I can't learn math beyond division?

I mean I CAN'T learn math beyond division and I never will.

Keep looking forward not backward.
Slow steps will carefully get you there...

Hi, Lady Wood!! Thanks! How are you?

Anything is possible. Remember Einstein failed high school.

Please don't go into math with such an attitude. Keep trying and you will learn it. I couldn't understand geometry for a while and almost gave up, but I pushed through and passed the class with an a.

Science and math are constant. Many scientists feel that both can be succeeded at as long as you continually practice. Some may need more than others, but as long as you continue to study you will get better at the sky's the limit.

Probably not, although it wouldn't hurt to try if that's what you want to do.

Marcus, yes you will, I've never seen you give up on anything!! Remember this, if someone else is doing it, so can you!

Thanks, Kookiegirl! I'm complimented. :)

Hey Marcus, this isn't like you. Quantum physics is a hard mountain to climb but I know you're smart enough to excel at math. Maybe you need a tutor to get you over your stumbling block. Once you start to make progress it's the most logical of all fields with one step just following that which went before. Give it a go.

Hi dodgy:) nice answer! (What is quantum physics, anyway?)

You want that answered in 1200 characters? It's that branch of science which prompted Einstein to quip, "God doesn't play dice with the Universe."

Here's a quick Internet definition:
Quantum physics is a branch of science that deals with discrete, indivisible units of energy called quanta as described by the Quantum Theory. There are five main ideas represented in Quantum Theory:

1. Energy is not continuous, but comes in small but discrete units.
2. The elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves.
3. The movement of these particles is inherently random.
4. It is physically impossible to know both the position and the momentum of a particle at the same time. The more precisely one is known, the less precise the measurement of the other is.
5. The atomic world is nothing like the world we live in.

Oh cool, interesting. :) sorry lol I feel bad you had to type all that!

Cut and paste only. Easy peasy.

Ahh ok. :) what we would do without cut and paste?!

Thank you, David! My friends on Ask are so supportive. :)))

Shaylen, quantum physics is the branch of physics dealing with microscopic things, like energy, molecules, etc.
Report as
Ohhhh ok! That makes sense. :) sounds interesting!

Hi kookie ... and thanks

Hey Marcus. :) I agree with zoologicalrevial. Can't is a dangerous word, so is never, because then we believe its true, and we don't even try, and our attitude impacts our ability. I struggle terribly in math. I always had to get help and I hated it, but it helped. You're incredibly bright, Marcus. Don't give up on yourself. Math doesn't come easy to everyone, some of us have to work twice as hard at it than others do, but that's ok! Just believe in yourself, and keep working hard, you'll get it. I agree with Dodgy as well, you may just need extra help and attention with a tutor.

Thanks, Shaylen! I just got a burst of friends. Haha. You all are amazing!

You're welcome, Marcus. :) It's probably because you're so amazing. :P Just don't forget to push hard, and believe in yourself. You'll go far in life.

Math is most likely the most important subject in school, Math is one of the only universal languages there is. I know it can be difficult at times, but is rewarding. I never thought I would ever use Trig in my lifetime, but found out I use it everyday in my career. angles, and such are something I couldn't do my job without. Buckle down and figure it out.

I hope you're not right because with the way I handle math it seems like I have a learning disability.
Report as
Marcus, there are sooo many people that have learning disabilities, and disabilities in general, that have succeeded and become successful in their weak spots. You can still do well in math even if you struggle. Just keep pushing! I think math and English are the most important subjects.
Report as
I'll try, Shaylen.

:/ I hope you're ok, Marcus. I believe you can do just about anything you set your mind to, as long as you're willing to put forth the time and effort. I know how frustrating math is. That's why I need to marry someone rich. :P Jk, lol. I've been told I have a learning disability, but, I think math is just hard period. Everything else makes sense!

Education isn't what had me down. Lol. But thanks anyway!

I didn't think it was, but just thought I'd add that anyway. :P I hope you feel better though, I could sense something is/was wrong, I just felt bad asking here, since its someone else's answer. Anyway, hope you feel better regardless, I'm always here if you need to talk. :)

Okay thanks!
