I agree with you Integral. But I don't care if it's new or old. I just want to enjoy mathematics . What I wanted to understand was the development of completely new ideas in mathematics?
I've not heard of the development of a completely new area of mathematics in a very very long times. Even quite revolutionary area of mathematics like probability or calculus that have only really come to light in the last few hundred years are still very much based on the mathematics that was already existing. A lot of mathematics is just building on old mathematics so you need to have good foundation of a lot of mathematics before you can start to understand new stuff.

I suggest you stick around on this forum, help people when you can and try and soak in as much maths that is beyond the level you are being taught. I've certainly built up my maths way beyond my peers by doing this.
