Where to go from here? a book question...

  1. Oct 5, 2016 #1

    I stopped studying math after grade 10. Then many years later I did.
    1-calculus dairies. (story book with personal calculus experience )
    2-idiot's guide to calculus.
    3-Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences(Mary Boas)
    4-Advance Engineering Mathematics (Erwin Kreyszig)
    5-real analysis, and some pure mathematics books, few chapters here and there.
    6-little bit of octave/matlab skills.Little bit of c, some python some shell..

    As much as I like looking at the symbols and and writing equation on paper and solving them, I get side tracked.. and think why I am doing it?
    My question to you is:
    How do I connect this stuff to reality?
    Or I just learn new stuff and marvel the beauty ??

    This depends very much on your goal. If nothing else, it helps analyse speeches on TV with respect to their logic consistency. However, I warn you. It might be unpleasant to recognize all the ....... politicians are saying.

    So I am not the only one finding inconsistent logics all over the place ...:biggrin:
