Question Hi! What would you recommend for someone trying catch up on high school maths?


I did International Baccalaureate, and due to a mixture of severe illness and laziness I ended up getting a 3 at standard level. :/

I've always been an amateur autodidact and am currently learning to code, and I think coding and maths go hand in hand, complementing one another. I've always been pretty intimidated by maths, though I loved the subject at GCSE and like youtubers like Vi Hart ('who doesn't?!' yeah I know). To be honest it was her that inspired me to start looking into it again, but I don't know where to start.

I'm thinking Khan Academy or one of the suggested Life Hacker MOOCs, but I'd love any suggestions.

I can pull up the IB curriculum if that would be of any help.

Math Focus: Number theory, computational mathematics, combinatorics, FOM, symbolic logic, TCS, algorithms
Khan Academy isn't a bad way to catch up. At least once you go through thatyou should have a decent idea of what you know and what you don't.
