Checking in

As an elderly gentleman who has decided to encourage his 'little grey cells' to become more active, I have joined your happy band in the hope of having a good workout. Currently I'm using the 'Khan Academy' site to help blow away the cobwebs but will doubtless be postings queries soon.
  Much power to your elbows.

Hi StrollingBy;

You might find that this sort of place can give you an even bigger mental workout. Welcome to the forum!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Thinking is cheating.

Hi StrollingBy,

Welcome to the forum!

It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge - Enrico Fermi. 

Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge - Stephen William Hawking.
