Main Question or Discussion Point

I would like a site that would challenge my mind. So far I have taken pre-calculus and I took physics I back in high school. I have to take physics again after this semester though -.-.

Specifically something that could challenge me with math and physics. Please, I'm dying to problem solve!

Many thanks in advance. :!!)

What i would recommend is for you to check out a self-teach book, for you, it would be Calculus 1. It is the best way to advance your skills prior to math, especially if your errand is to become a mathematician.

Well, my passion is to be a physicist. I love solving problems that relate to physics or the real world.

I don't know if I should self-teach myself Calculus, I rather go along with the course next semester. What I am interested in is perfecting my previous math skill so that I have an encompassing base of knowledge. I like to make sure I completely understand every single concept and why it is the way it is.

Thanks but that site tend to keep things too simple. And it doesn't have anything relating to physics at all. It only goes up to pretty much pre-calculus.

Uh, have you actually browsed the videos? Plenty of em on physics, university level calculus and linear algebra.

One of those massive shiny calculus texts (Larson I think) should have enough material in there to sharpen your skills for well over a year.
