Hey everyone.

I'm a third year Maths student, but after being taught by extremely dull, unenthusiastic and lazy lecturers who think its ok to scribble down notes from a textbook on the blackboard is acceptable teaching i thought i would look for other ways to learn about maths, because i really enjoy it and hence how i came to this forum

Im naturally very good at maths, find it really easy to understand new concepts, but i dont study so much because i find it hard to find the right material to teach me. Im quite particular and thourough, and i find a lot of texts are too quick to explain or are just plain rubbish... i hope i can talk to some people who are on the same wavelength as me and also maybe find some friends!

Im currently writing my own sophisticated yet non-jargon and through version of a maths book designed to really "teach" maths in the way which i believe will let everybody understand, however its going to end up really comprehensive as im a perfectionist so it will take a while, not that im in a rush, its a long term thing for my own enjoyment, but if i ever get round to completing a section (ive started with Algebra cos i love it), i could always give a lucky few a sneaky peek if your nice

Anyway, greetings!

Hi g3org3m, and welcome.

I also try to explain maths in an approachable way. Could we see a sample of your work?

Sure you'd find some, g3org3m and also make friends!

I've too always had a feeling Mathematics can be taught better!

My good wishes for your venture!

Thanks guys!

Sure, I could snip out a bit of it and upload it to see a sample... although I haven't got far enough to finalise any harder material so it will be basic degree level the bit you'll see

I will try and get it up within the next week or so.
