Hello World

Hello all,

adampjr here.

Never was that good at math in school, but now I like it and I might try to major in it soon.

Looking forward to snooping around the forum.

Hello adamjr!

High school mathematics does not give a good interpretation of what it is to students. It shows that mathematics is all memorization and "plug and chug," which is not true and often turns students away from it. I think you should take a few mathematics courses at a university, community college or self-study them so that you get a better idea before committing to it. Of course, if you apply to university as a mathematics major, you can change it within the year or so (at least in the US, which is where you likely are because you used the word "major" which I think is mainly used only there).

Re: Hello World

My favorite color is deep dark blue.

I agree Shivam. I didn't like how it was presented in school. Yes, I'm in the US, and I'm actually looking to major in CS with possibly a double major involving math.

Re: Hello World

Hi;

Welcome to the forum.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
