If my high school pre-cal teacher had ever thought of explaining functions, tangents and binomial coefficients in terms of flowers, I'm positive that I'd be a math whiz today. Alas, all I learned for the long-term is the quadratic equation, set to the tune of "London Bridge is Fall Down." In Algebra, the only equations I managed to master were the ones that invovled setting a's, b's, c's, and d's up next to each other and cancelling some of them out. Letters I understand. Numbers, you are my eternal nemesis. Fellow English majors, unite.
