Hello all, I will be spending 1 year in jail for selling weed (please don't judge). I am very business savvy, and have always been very good with the math I needed to know (which was mostly just algebra). I have always been interested in learning advanced mathematics and chemistry/physics, but I never had time due to working a full time job, owning two businesses, my illegal dealings, and spending time with my wife. Since I will have nothing at all to do in jail, I figure I should use my time productively and learn the things I never had the time to learn on the outside. Since this is a county jail, there will not be classes, and I will have no internet access. So the only resource I can rely on is books. So what I need you guys to help me on if you would be so kind, is to 1) tell me the order of things I should learn in 2) Tell me which textbooks would be the best for self-teaching those subjects (they have to be paperback). What I was able to come up with as far as curriculum and self teaching books, by browsing some college curriculums, would be something like this: 1) Subject: Geometry. Book: Art of problem solving (Geometry) 2) Subject: Precalculus. Book: Precalculus: Mathematics for calculus (Stewart) 3) Book: How to prove it (Velleman) 4) Subject: Calc 1-2. Book: Calculus by Spivak 5) Subject: Calc 3. Book: Calculus III (Marsden) 6) Subject: Intro to chemistry. Book: Chemical Principles (Atkins) 7) Subject: Intro to physics. Book: University Physics with modern physics (Sears and Zemansky) 8) Subject: organic chemistry. Book: Organic chemistry as a second language 9) Subject: Linear algeba. Book: Linear algebra and its applications (Strang) 10) Subject: ODE Book: ODE (Dover book) 11) Subject: PDE. Book: Introduction to PDE by E. C. Zachmanoglou 12) Subject: Combinatorics. Book: Principles an techniques in combinatorics (KOH 13) Dover book on probability theory 14) Statistical inference by casella 15) A book of set theory (dover) 16) A book of abstract algebra (pinter) 17) elementary number theory (dover) 18) Real analysis (bass) 19) Mathematical finance (alhabeeb) 20) stochastic calculus (springer) 21) stochastic calculus 2 (shreve) Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not a bad guy, and I want to try to make the most of a bad situation by at least improving my knowledge. Thanks in advance.
