Organising a syllabus for my own learning.As I said back in my introduction, I am at a basic level in maths and don't have access to a tutor. #2 20130225 22:11:45
Re: Organising a syllabus for my own learning.
I find that is the best way to learn. Maybe you are the same way? Learning whenever the need to arises keeps you motivated and hungry. It does not matter how advanced or simple the topic is rated as. If you want it and need it right now you will learn it.
Let your desire and intuition guide you as to the order. You will learn at your own pace and you will have more fun.

All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130225 22:47:55
Re: Organising a syllabus for my own learning.Yes, normally I agree absolutely with that  and perhaps that is what is motivating me now.
But a few lines further on it says,
Huh?! #4 20130225 22:50:15
Re: Organising a syllabus for my own learning.Absolute values are always positive. The minus sign then makes it negative. So the negative of any absolute value is negative. #5 20130225 22:52:17
Re: Organising a syllabus for my own learning.Hi;
That is always true. Math is huge, you will always be missing most of the jigsaw puzzle pieces. Thinking mathematically means thinking without all the pieces.
