# Decision 1 - square peg, round hole watch

1. I really need help with this subject

D1 - i spent 6 months trying to understand and learn thought i got it, then got a U - achieved 49%.

something is not clicking - any tips on getting this clicking in my head??

at the moment it feels like the title of this post
2. You can't fit a square peg in a round hole unless its measurements exactly match the circle in question
3. thats my point with d1
4. i found that half my class could just do it, I mean my teacher just handed out some algorithms one day and a few of us just followed them through no problem. They were the only students to get an A in the module (literally). I recon some poeple are born with the ability to do this kind of thing and others aren't. if it is that hard for you go do a different module (like m1/s1/nm) they are all more apporachable to all from my experience. maybe i had a bad teacher though :P
5. My head of maths summed it up with "the people who blitz the core modules, do rubbish at D1." It's not really maths IMHO, Decision is just common sense, but is ambiguous.

I'm disagree, mainly as i blitzed both of them :P (100 in all cores 90 in D1)

also just because it isn't rigoroius maths, with lots of complex algebra and what not, doesn't mean it is bad or not worth it, and it certainly IS maths but from a different perspective. plus D1 is really interesting

also if D1 is a good indicator of common sense, then surely that is a very useful thing to be able to weed out...

Hey, I've got nothing against D1 personally, I just feel that it isn't very "mathsy". I don't particularly like applied maths anyway.
