my son and i are just learning string theory.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i was wondering whether there were any recommended websites other than the elegant universe (we have found a couple and they are quite suitable, but we don't know enough to determine if there are preferred sites to go to).

also, what sort of math background should we be working towards? calculus, diff eqns i figure is needed, but the official site talks about K-theory and Noncommutative geometry which i don't have a clue about, but i guess this stuff isn't needed till one is well into things.

so any recommended game plans would be appreciated.

in friendship,

prad
