Static Vs Instance

I understand that this is great info but if someone is really not going to build games how much of the math principals would one actually use. I feel that i would never be designing games so maybe writing the code for those is just taking too long and for no reason. Now, I may be totally wrong so i am here seeking advice and help. Also , when i try to follow along , things seem to work out just fine but honestly ,when i try to redo everything from scratch the next day , i get stuck at so many places and have to look back get some help . Is it the right way or should i just keep watching videos and following the course and no matter what i do right now , i will not perfect it ? Maybe the perfect stage comes when one gets an actual job ?

Thank you

I'm not sure how your question relates to the title.

I can assure you that the concepts of "Static vs. Instance" are not unique to games, and you will use these no matter what you develop programs for.

You also didn't mention or link to the course you are taking at the moment, but if it is one of the beginner level courses I would suggest sticking with it for a while and you may find that at some point things will start to make more sense and be easier to remember.
