Hi Everybody!

I am new here. I am a returning student to school, trying to get my Bachelor's degree and I realized that I am terrible at math. I have forgotten how to do some of the most basic concepts that I learned in high school, so I'm here to re-learn. I find the site very informative and explains it very well. I hope to learn and make friends!

Hi Smoothie;

Welcome!

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.
