A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
I was a student studying Applied Computing (University of Caper Town, 2002-2005, Computer Science + History)
Unfortunately I never finished my degree (In part because I failed 1st year maths 4 years in a row) and to be honest it
hasn't stopped me from getting a nice coding job and doing well for myself.
However, I was recently helping my wife with her Masters (She's a molecular genetics researcher) and realised that:
- I have forgotten most of the maths that I learned at University and some of the maths from Secondary School
- I regret the above
- I remember not actually being terrible at the maths, just having trouble with the exams (A general problem for me )
- I also remember enjoying the maths, even as I failed it
To this end I'd love it if someone could suggest some good, freely available textbooks in electronic form that would allow
me to return to 1st year maths (And maybe even try some 2nd or 3rd year stuff
and refresh my knowledge.
I don't want to continue growing more ignorant, so please help...
