How can I teach myself more advanced math?

  1. Sep 10, 2010 #1
    Hi everyone. I'm new posting to these forums, although I have been lurking for the past couple of months.

    My question is simple: How can I teach myself math?

    I am 16, and love learning new concepts and ideas regarding math. What is the best way to start out, and are there any good websites which I can work through?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would start by grabbing a college calculus book and linear algebra book.

    Calculus by Stewart is a good start for calculus
    Linear Algebra by David C. Lay is a good start for Linear Algebra

    If you can understand these books then you can start to move onto more advanced topics like Real Analysis and more general algebras.
