Hi. I've recently gotten interested in mathematics as a hobby, but I'm not sure what I should be studying in what order. I remember in High School we had Algebra I, then Geometry, then Algebra II, then Trig, then Pre-calc and so on. However, we never studied the really cool stuff (like multi-dimensional geometry, theoretical math, etc.), and I was wondering what subjects I need to study, in what order, to build a foundation for those higher math subjects.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I also need to find out what higher math subjects are available to study. (I really know very little about math beyond my basic algebra and geometry in High School, and having seen Good Will Hunting two or three times ).

Anyway, any direction, help, advice, criticism, or good wishes are appreciated.

BTW, right now I am reading through two books, Courant's "What is Mathematics?" and Kline's "Mathematics for the Non-Mathematician" as general mathematics primers, but after that, I'm not sure what a good next step will be.

Anyway, thanks for the help!
