i am 16 a high school grad i wanted 2 know if it was possible for me 2 be the greatest mathematician of all times ,already my friends call me the goat i.e the greatest of all times pls let me know
No, it cannot happen.abia ubong said:i am 16 a high school grad i wanted 2 know if it was possible for me 2 be the greatest mathematician of all times ,already my friends call me the goat i.e the greatest of all times pls let me know
motai said:Hmm.. if that is the approach you will take, as theCandyman said earlier, you're only setting yourself up for failure.
The vast majority of us will never be exceptional (like world-class famous) in everything, and that is something we will have to accept. I myself am a mediocre track runner, placed last in every event, but I really could care less. In academics, I am not at the top, nor do I want to be classified as such; and I consider myself by no means "smart", because there is always more to learn. And as long as you have that mentality, and have the willingness to learn, in my opinion, it will take you as far as you want to go.
Always be willing to learn new things, get excited about it, and enjoy it. Never cease to ask questions in the classroom, and ask them out of it. Because by doing these, you will gain better knowledge in what you are trying to learn, and it is through this that perhaps fame through noteworthy achievements will come.
Happiness can come through other means than fame, so we shouldn't be bent over trying to gain the popularity and acceptance of others until we have found our own happiness.

"What?"
"Oh, I'm just saying you are good at History."
"Oh, thanks."
What level math are you taking now? Unless you are taking Calculus already, you are setting your self up for a giant failure. (He said greatest of all time, not just great)

graphic7 said:Eh, I'm taking ODE, now, and I certainly don't see myself as becoming a first-class mathematician. I'm fairly certain I'll be a competent one. Regardless, being able to take courses at a young age (as myself) does not guarantee anything.
I don't know what ODE is
I wasn't aware that there were even 10k mathmaticians in the world.

Poop-Loops said:I was just basing it on the fact that mathematics is the most mind-numbing subject on the planet. It takes a certain type of person to be able to withstand all of it. And of those special people, maybe a handful would actually like doing it.
Note, that by mathematician I mean only those with Ph.D's in Math. Not your regular school teacher, they don't count. My HS calculus teacher was a literature major in college. I think there is a huge line between being able to say "I have a degree in..." and "I am a..." But maybe it's just semantics.

While it is possible for anyone to become a great mathematician, becoming the greatest of all time is a highly subjective and debated topic. It often depends on individual contributions, recognition, and impact on the field.
Some common qualities and skills that are often associated with great mathematicians include creativity, problem-solving abilities, persistence, and a strong foundation in mathematical concepts and theories.
Becoming the greatest mathematician of all time requires a significant amount of time and effort. It often involves years of studying, researching, and making groundbreaking contributions to the field. It also requires dedication and a passion for mathematics.
There is no specific field or area of mathematics that guarantees one will become the greatest mathematician of all time. Many great mathematicians have made significant contributions in various fields, such as algebra, geometry, number theory, and calculus.
While formal education and training in mathematics can provide a strong foundation, it is not a requirement to become the greatest mathematician of all time. Some individuals have made groundbreaking contributions to the field without a formal education, but it often requires a natural aptitude and dedication to self-study and research.
