Self-Teach College Math

Is it feasible to learn college level math topics (Modern Algebra, Real and Complex Analysis, Number Theory, etc.) on your own at an advanced level?

As an electrical engineering student, I don't have enough units to minor or double major in math, but am still really interested in studying more advanced math topics beyond Calculus and Linear Algebra. If advanced math topics are too difficult to self-teach, I was thinking about dropping out of engineering to pursue a math/physics double major.

If you do not know the subject well so yes it is difficult to teach self. You can share your questions here or you can join any college math course online so you will get full help there and able to solve your problems with the help of expert tutor.

What is the best way to introduce the division algorithm? Are there real life examples of an application of this algorithm. At present I state and prove the division algorithm and then do some numerical examples but most of the students find this approach pretty dry and boring. I would like to bring this topic to live but how?
