Saying hi with a few questionsHi, everyone. I got drawn into the site by the Boxup puzzle game, and now I'm signed up on another forum. Cool site. Last edited by biteater (20130702 07:20:25) #2 20130702 07:23:03
Re: Saying hi with a few questionsWelcome to the community and a nice introduction. You should try MIF or Khan acad for great tutorials. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.

Re: Saying hi with a few questions
That is a big question. I don't know where to start, given the variety of things that I'm interested in. One of my interests is computers. Maybe you're familiar with Linux and GNU? In Linux, there is the GNU toolset, which is a general set of software tools which can be used as modular filters and functions for working upon data in general to solve problems and do interesting things. I want to have an understanding of what tools are available in math, and be able to pick and choose a set of math tools for solving problems and doing things that are interesting to me, whatever my interest is at the moment. I want to understand how those tools work so that I can approach a variety of problems, being able to analyze those problems, and coming up with solutions that work and aren't too clunky.

Re: Saying hi with a few questionsHi biteater; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20130702 13:57:43

That's one I can enthuse about. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
