Alas, it is true. When I took Intermediate Algebra, I dropped my load to 6
units so I could study. My other class was, ahem, speech. I have since
forgotten every worthwhile thing I learned (in math).
I maintain the questions asked, and points of view taken have less to do
with knowledge of math and more to do with critical thinking.
