Hello all

I thought I would stop by and introduce myself. I received my GED when I was 16, back in 1982. I returned to school back in 1992 to get a certificate in HVAC. I then became disabled in 2005. An injury at work. I about went crazy from 2005 to 2007. I am not one to sit around the house all day doing nothing. Anyway; I had my last surgery 12-07 and decided that I can still work. Even thou I have limitations. So I started back to school again. The subject of studies in math that I am taking this semester is Linear algebra and I am taking Differential equations, as well as other courses. The problem is that there are not any tutors at the community college that know either of the two subjects. I am glad I found this forum and for the help that I have already received.

Re: Hello all

Hi aqa;

Welcome to the forum.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
