I am 28 year old dude, who didn't care about anything other than partying highschool (partially because I saw everything as trivial and irrelevant), I have been trying to make up for it for over a year now.
I taught myself math far past what I ever learned in school, then went back to school, took two uni level astronomy courses while also upgrading (and learning) Math 30 for the first time. (Math 30 is like pre calculus.)
I've always loved science, but I never found math as fun untill recently. I ended up dropping out of the math 30 course I was taking because it was all about memorization. It was about learning to pass a math exam, NOT LEARNING MATH. For some reason, my brain completely rejects anything it doesn't understand the living math out of. I currently spend about 8 hours a day analyzing the living math out of every little thing in math I am supposed to learn, as well as philosophizing the math out of every little thing I come across in mathematics. I need to be able to visulalize everything and to do that means you must understand the math out of everything.
I never thought I would turn into such a geek, but it's happening and I can't stop it. Nor do I want it to. I can't wait to get started on calculus, although I will probably teach it to myself because I learn WAY better that way. (as long as there is someone to help me when I get stumped.)
Anyway, if it was up to me, I would get so ridiculously good at math, that I never have to speak Enlgish again.
Any advice on different games, or things to work on to totally max out my math potential would be much appreciated. I am willing to put a ridiculous amount of effort into improving my math skills.
Math is not a means to arrive at truth, Math IS the only truth!
I am ready for some Mad Math!
Thank you, and nice to meet you all.
