Beginner

Hello guys, I am new here. My math education is very bad (here in Africa, our syllabus is not good), but today I stumbled upon a proof of the Euler's conjecture. I am really impressed by the symbols even though I can't make sense of them; they really intrigued my mind. For the first time in my life, I felt something deep, something universal. I want to devote my life to pure mathematics and not this dull applied math we are taught here, so can you give me any suggestions on the field itself and the materials to start my journey?

Welcome to the forum!

I often recommend getting hold of a good textbook, but if that's difficult, it might be easier going to websites. There are plenty of maths websites and I'm sure there are people here that can recommend a particular website for you.

If you get stuck on particular problems, you're always welcome to post your queries here

Otherwise, the only advice I can give is to start with the simple stuff, not the crazy-hard stuff, and do lots and lots of questions!

If I may know, how's the math syllabus in Africa? What have you learned in twelfth grade?
