Hello Board! By eluding most math class' and homework as a youngster I have deprived myself effectively of a tool on which I am dependent nowadays. My love for mathematics if ever existent was ephemeral, unpredictable in its manifestation. I would either almost fail the class or would have finished the entire math book before we even had reached 3/4 of the school year. Today, seven years later at the age of 25 I have set my mind to study physics in the upcoming winter semester 16/17 in Zurich and I need to prepare, no relearn and refurbish my understanding of the required mathematics. Having been an ignorant for such a long time I would like to ask you people, who have already cultivated a joy and deep understanding of the subjects, to help me manoeuvre through this. This will be hopefully a guide for many years to come. What math and in which order should I learn the material to truly comprehend physics? All I can give you in return is my sincerest effort and deep felt gratitude. Cheers, Aki PS: Yes, I might have an awkward English it is my second language with German being my first but I do understand it quite well so please don't hesitate.
