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

I have drop out school at high school. All the subjects taught in school were senseless to me, so I've decided to leave it. After that, I've decided to learn things by myself. Nowadays I'm working as software programmer developing computer vision programs, without any college degree.

I think I need build a solid foundation on my math knowledge. I've plans to study subjects like algorithms (e.g. Knuth's TAOCP) and I still can't read the maths expressions used to describe algorithms that I find in computer vision papers. So I think this solid foundation should be oriented to fit a computer science curriculum, but I don't want to be stuck with it. I also want to develop a mathematical vision of world, to be able to solve real problems using math, to be able to get in at any subject where math is used, like physics.

How can I achieve this?

My first step was to get a copy of The Elements, Euclid. I'm in the very early propositions and I'm loving it. I found this book after realize that I don't needed to master arithmetic or algebra in order to read it properly, and we use geometry a lot at work. This book is very comprehensive and straightforward.

But, I really don't know what to do next. I would prefer a classical approach instead a khan-video-site one. I feel like video lectures are too passive. I would prefer textbooks instead.

I'm already considering two possible next steps: get a copy of Gelfand's Algebra or to read Euler's Elements of Algebra.

What should I do? How can I build this roadmap to self learning math?

Thanks
