Hi, been lurking for 10 years. Never posted.

edx.org has classes on aero/mech engineering. I lack the math and physics background to understand them.

Math has terrified me since the 4th grade. We fear what we don't understand.

I plan to take math classes at my local community college. If I learn it in a class setting, I won't quit like I do trying to learn it on my own. I want to learn.

1.algebra 1-2

2.geometry

3.trigonometry

3.calculus 1-3

4.linear algebra

5.differential equations.

6.MAYBE physics 1-3

I can probably learn the physics on my own or online classes, once I've learned the math.

My questions are. How realistic is my goal? How long will the community college take to learn the math? Cost?

Just for hobby/amateur. Not a career thing. Self enhancement maybe.
