Hello

Hello everybody. I have been a guest lurker of the forum for some time now, although I made this account a while back. I thought it was finally time to start posting and getting to know some people on here.

The reason I have come to this forum: I love math! I am 18 and starting my first year of honours pure mathematics in September and I am extremely excited. I hope to make it to the end and achieve a Ph.D, though it seems like it will be a tough ride (and fun).

I am happy to be able to share my interests with other like-minded individuals, and I hope to remain an active member of the community. It's nice to meet you all!

Re: Hello

Hi;

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.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Re: Hello

I used to be in Ontario (well, I moved around a bit in Canada) so I knew a lot of people who went to University of Alberta, University of British Columbia etc. In fact, I think I know some people who goes to University of Alberta for mathematics and science. One of them I talked to said the program there was quite good!

You should as lots of people here will be able to help you with most problems you encounter there. There are also a few people currently or planning to study mathematics here too. I am currently in a 3rd year mathematics (double major with biology & minor electrical engineering) right now.
