I'm really not sure if a stem career is right for me, I love math and science and absolutely adore the thought of getting paid to do what i love! Is there a way for me to know i want to make sure this is what i want how can i be sure?

I have an ap calculus class and it's giving me trouble i thought i loved math but this has me pulling my hair out! anyway how can i teach this is i cannot do it myself, or am i thinking too far ahead? should i give it time does it get easier should i just push through and hope for brighter days or am i gonna go bald? #mathematics #chemistry #physics #chemical-engineering #ukraine

Natalie’s Answer

I would say if you have an interest in math or are considering a career in STEM not to give up on that just because of one challenging class. Once you are in college you will have the opportunity to take classes in a variety of subjects as well as all different types of math classes. If after trying out a couple different STEM subjects and you are still struggling then maybe you could consider other career options. It's hard to say whether or not it will get easier since many STEM subjects will always be challenging, but if you have a passion for it and are willing to put in some extra effort, it is certainly worth having a career in something you love!

L,

Like a lot of people, I am a big believer that college is more about finding out what interests you, what you are good at, how to learn/think, and who you are, than it is about job training. It is good to look ahead, but my advice would be to chill out and not let one AP calculus class determine your future. (Maybe the problem is the instructor, but in any case, keep at it! Adversity builds character.)

Good luck!

Firas’s Answer

Hi,


It is great to hear that you like STEM subjects! I would recommend that you be patient with yourself. Simply because you are finding a math topic slightly more challenging does not mean that you wouldn't be able teach it. In fact, loving Math and finding it challenging is a good thing. No one expects you to find everything about the STEM field easy simply because you enjoy the subject matter.


I would continue trying within your course, but also be flexible. Also, there are numerous fields within STEM that you can choose that may not be related to this specific subject. Regardless, I have a found that the most satisfaction comes from becoming successful after being challenged.


Good luck!
