Understanding Lower Level Math

  1. Apr 1, 2015 #1

    I felt inspired to share this even though it's probably common knowledge to most people here. So, I've never taken or have been required to take a geometry class. I am currently in calculus 1 and doing just fine. However, I am doing a math review for mastery and I am going over geometry now (using Schaum's Outlines). I have been flat out excited going through this book - especially after learning about the different postulates (chapter 2). Major chunks of my math knowledge are being connected.

    My education up until high school was very substandard. I am part to blame, but the institutions were also very low quality. At any rate, I thought I would share this in case anyone else might be interested. Also, if you want to go deeper, try Euclid's Elements. It's about $25 from Amazon.

    You were already doing geometry, you just didn't know it yet :wink:
