How Do I Take My High School Maths To The Next Level? And How Can I Properly Research Mathematical Questions? And How Do I Find The Origins of Mathematical Theories? Hi there ladies and gentlemen. If you are anything like me, you probably struggle with balancing Work, Studies and the Social Life. No Down Time, no You Time, no just sitting back and relaxing. Or maybe I am wrong about you. I want to study a Degree in Chemical Engineering, but in the meantime I am seeking work as a Welder (Arc). (And work hard and study hard till I'm a Coded Welder). I am in my 20s and still dealing with High School. Late Bloomer. But I never let things like that hold me back. There is still a lot of Math that I need to go through before I can say, "Hey, look here", but I really enjoy studying. Right now, I am trying my hardest to lay a good Math Foundation. I want to understand really complicated Mathematical Terms. I don't know how much time I have to post on this forum, but hopefully it will be helpful. And maybe I can be of help.

Soft/fuzzy suggestions: Work hard. Don't give up. Push yourself to do things in math beyond your comfort zone, because you won't learn by staying there. Actionable suggestions:

Good for you for not letting your "late bloomerhood" stop you! I have dabbled with math and music and weightlifting off and on since my younger days, but am doing more with ALL of them now while holding down a fulltime job that is itself a true calling unrelated to any of these interests and taking care of a house full of animals all by myself  and I'm in my late 50s. You CAN do this! You clearly have the drive. Go for it. And don't be a stranger. Lots of good people on this forum who will be happy to help you along your path!

I think you should first concentrate on your week points. Then after that start practicing them as many times as you can and if suppose you face any difficulties in solving them then you can take help from any of your elder, youtube or even get specialized brief notes from any reputed Learning Center. Only thing according to me that can hep you achieve your target is PRACTICE.

Here's a test for you. Take out a pencil and paper. Don't look up the Internet or text books. Prove the Pythagorean Theorem off the top of your head. I want to see if you know the fundamentals.
