Is this standard for a math class or just this professor?

What do you recommend doing to understand math better?

If this is the standard, any advice on how I can memorize them?

Any advice would be gladly appreciated, thank you!

I was thinking of watching khan academy videos about pre-calculus and see if its a bit less intimidating and I can understand it better that way. Thank you!

It is the first part in a video series by 3Blue1Brown on calculus. It explains it in an awesome way that I started using when tutoring.

Thanks for replying. I know what I'm looking for with the formulas but most of the time I mix them up. I often forget the correct order of the process or write the wrong exponent,etc. I don't know why I keep forgetting. I hope I can find a way to retain the formulas. I'll give copying them a shot.

Then you're not actually understanding what's going on. Memorizing formulae and trying to remember when to apply what is not understanding the math. That's like trying to understand a book written in a language you don't speak by memorizing the alphabet. You need to understand the concepts, and then what to do when will naturally flow from there.

Thank you! I'll definitely start watching these along with the khan academy videos to be more prepared for my next math class.
