MAA's Intro

  1. Sep 28, 2015 #1
    Hello all,

    I'm an aspiring STEM student who holds a strong interest in Mathematics and Computer Science. I'm active duty Navy, 24 years old, and try to spend a reasonable amount of time developing my ability in these areas despite whatever workload demands may arise and being an old, uneducated dude.

    I have an AA in Fine Arts and only made it up to Calc I in a three course sequence, but am so rusty with it and trigonometry that I've gotten a $3 used text for Precalc from Amazon to review! I loved the logic courses I took from the Philosophy department and the proof aspects of geometry and trigonometry throughout school.

    Basically, I aim to best use my free time for the rest of my enlistment by studying as much math and programming as I can. I'd love to pursue actuarial science at some point, but for now just want to learn as much as I can to be ready for the rigors of the future.

    Thanks for reading and I look forward to being part of the community here.

    With respectful regards,
