Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I remember reading a bio on Robert Langland a few weeks ago and he said that when the time came for him to decide his major in school, he chose maths instead of physics. He said that he found maths easier to learn on his own when compared to physics, and this seemed to have an influence on his decision at the time.

I am not sure what this means - how is maths easier to learn than physics on your own?

Thank you~
