Hello everyone!

Hi there, my name is Ugur and i'm 14, i want to become a computer programmer and develop my own programs(it doesn't matter until it makes people's life more easy and fast).  For this, i must learn to math perfectly. In my country the education system is situated to memorization not critical thinking or analytical thinking(I'm just good at science lessons but they are not teaching to important things about science, they dont touch on even the theories so students doesn't know what they learned about it..). That means if i want to learn math well its not enough with going to school.. I thought i can learn things about math and ask questions to you for improve myself, also with doing this i can learn English better.

If you have some advices for me, i would enjoy to read it.

Re: Hello everyone!

Welcome to the forum.

Your country's not to blame as most education boards have adopted a system of rote learning.Best thing you can do is go with the flow, get good grades and do some studying on the side. It gets better in university.

Re: Hello everyone!

Hi LaplacesDemon;

You can get away without being great at math to be a good programmer. To improve you have to try but you have not come back.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
