    I like numbers they feel real to me

    when everything around me is not. They are concrete. I can cling to them.

    Just A Beginner.

    I was almost thinking I didn't want to post into this, just because of all the other posts I had read. I am not too experienced, but I am learning a lot and I really do enjoy it. I entered college about a year ago, having to start at the very bottom, working my way up. I am in...

    Number Theory Thought And Easy Proof.

    I have never taken Number Theory in my undergraduate curriculum, and I really wish I had. Recently it has been a topic of serious interest of mine. I have been picking up a few things along the way. One thing I thought about last Thursday was triangular numbers. ie, 1, 3, 6, 10...

    Always

    Maths have always been my favorite thing to do. I was 5 and I loved it; it just seemed so simple and beautiful. I've always been that weird kind that loves school (except now school isn't stimulating enough). I'm a teen and I love Maths, and I think it's because I find that it's...

    Study = Fail .. Not In My Eyes

    Number Cruncher

    Lower Math made me low, but higher math made me high. To know something with absolute certainty and precision was a revelation. An eternal truth beyond myself. Zeno's paradox - an arrow once shot will mathematrically never reach a tree! First it must go 1/2 then 1/2 again for...

    I honestly don't care

    for math that doesn't have some casual real-world application, and that can be used by most people. I do however like math when I'm capable of connecting a method I learned to some real world application in life. It's just being knowledgable of a subject I've been taught and...

    Math Is a Wonderful Thing...

    I love math because (if you're good at it) you do it, and it's done. It's objective, and you can just cross it off. As long as you understand it, which I usually do, you can just do it like a machine. I feel so accomplished and smart when I do math. It's the only thing I'm good...

    I love to make graphs out of equations

    or observations I make. It's fun for me to find patterns. Geometry is my favorite branch of math. For anyone who doesn't know, there's a good math-themed channel on YouTube called Numberphile I quite enjoy watching. :)

    OCW Reunites Me With Lost Mojo

    Open questions. A lot of people do not realize

    Math

    math is my fav subject in school,  mostly because its very cut-and-dry. 2+2 will ALWAYS equal 4. Also, math can reach anybody. You don't have to speak the same language to understand the same math problems. I really enjoy trig and geometry, which will hopefully help me when...

    Beauty In Mathematics

    I was terrible at math in secondary school, and avoided it like the plague in college. It was only much later, in my late 20's, that I discovered its beauty. But I also came to discover that ultimately the love of math(s) is not much more practical than the love of literature and...
