Hi people of mathsisfun

My name is mark, I am almost finished studying to be a draftsman for construction

I did some university to be a structural engineer, but i did not finish the course.

I did however complete all the mathematics subjects for the degree.

The math subjects I have interests in are ;

probability, mostly as applied to gambling though i know the house ALLWAYS wins so i dont gamble

engineering mathematics for design, this is what engineers do to get paid!

proofs of the engineering mathematics, seriously there are too many people who use equations in blind faith with little understanding of how they are made

using spreadsheets to produce neat and accurate engineering calculations quickly

graphical methods, which have fallen from use being replaced by software packages, but are so useful to gain understanding

Particularly i am a fan of the work of the spanish archirect Antoni Gaudi and Origami Math guy Eric Demaine

Anyway, I still have a lot to learn about these topics, and being here will help my motivation I think

I have already helped out with a few solutions so hopefully I can be a part of this forum bing a productive place

Later

Hi OzMark;

Nice introduction. You are already a part of 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.**
