As I pursue my own education I have found that math is not going anywhere. It is the foundation of Logic, a subject I happen to love and use quite frequently, oddly enough. I would like to understand statistical data on my own and how to compile that to begin with.
The experiment: What if I learn the non traditional mathematics and approach it as a new subject for me? My teacher is having me focus on the basics of proofs, using Abstract Mathematics principles.
I am dedicating 360 minutes every 7 days, logged by timer, to studying my texts. I memorize definitions and use the dictionary frequently to understand the usage of words, like disjunction and contra positive and even contra converse. I have been creating tedious truth tables then writing each line as a proof.
I do not know what mathematical journey lies ahead for me, but I know this, I am having fun. Every day I realize I learned something that was previously for geniuses only, in my mind. I get more and more excited to open my book, even though I’ve spent over 700 minutes on 15 pages. 15 pages of text I understand!
We will see where I go from here.
