Hi;

Do not worry about me and math problems. The problems always win as I rarely solve them.

Going to do a basic maths course for now.

Sometimes you have to go back to basics to move ahead. Have faith.

I find that hard to believe.

If only there were a really good maths site, where you could post your problem.

Already found that site.

The people over here have straightened out my thinking more than once. I got a free education just reading the posts, I am grateful.

Yes, I'm here, sorry, was trying to read through the post. No, I'm actually self learning. From reading though, it seems you had a few problems in school, I can definitely relate to that...unfortunately. As for what I'm learning, I'm still trying to learn calculus, but I often...review things (like from algebra), to make sure I have a good grasp and understanding of them. Um...I noticed bob bundy was talking in huge letters, did you want me to do the same?

hi Calligar

I see you've got the hang of the large text.

Well done.

I try to keep to short sentences too,

so it all fits into one screen,

with no side scrolling needed.
