Hello everyone, I am in over my head.

I actually have no idea why I am on a math forum.
Well, I kind of do.
My brain hasn't been used for a long time and I thought it needed some repairs.
I want to try/learn something new.

.......This webwite will just about bring me up to date with the last century I missed out on......

OK!! Thinking cap ON!!
Wish me luck.

Hello, and welcome!

You'll do great here if you only missed the last century of mathematics!

I find 18th century mathematics to be challenging enough.

I hope you find your "brain repairs" to be fun and rewarding!

Re: Hello everyone, I am in over my head.


I think of high school as teaching math up to the year 1100; (undergrad) college goes through maybe 1800. So if you're just 100 years out of date, that's pretty good.

Re: Hello everyone, I am in over my head.

The forum has lots of varieties of chocolate covered almonds for the season.
Everyone can understand if you cannot chew.
Don't worry, just suck the chocolate and leave the almonds to Mark and CRG.
