Hi people of mathsisfun

My name is mark, I am almost finished studying to be a draftsman for construction
I did some university to be a structural engineer, but i did not finish the course.
I did however complete all the mathematics subjects for the degree.

The math subjects I have interests in are ;

probability, mostly as applied to gambling though i know the house ALLWAYS wins so i dont gamble
engineering mathematics for design, this is what engineers do to get paid!
proofs of the engineering mathematics, seriously there are too many people who use equations in blind faith with little understanding of how they are made
using spreadsheets to produce neat and accurate engineering calculations quickly
graphical methods, which have fallen from use being replaced by software packages, but are so useful to gain understanding

Particularly i am a fan of the work of the spanish archirect Antoni Gaudi and Origami Math guy Eric Demaine 

Anyway, I still have a lot to learn about these topics, and being here will help my motivation I think

I have already helped out with a few solutions so hopefully I can be a part of this forum bing a productive place

Re: OzMark

Hi OzMark;

Nice introduction. You are already a part of the forum.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
