The New Value of Mathematics

Filed under: General — Cory @ 2:07 am

I have a degree in History, although I spent my first two years of college as an Economics major. Sometimes I wish I had have stuck with it (I bailed when I had to start doing serious math). Other times I wish I had pursued physics, or something in electronics, or sociology. Lately though I’ve been thinking more about mathematics, and this article really makes me wish I understood it better.

  1. I highly recommend checking out the book “Math Proofs Demystified” by Stan Gibilsco.

    It did a great job of helping me see math as logic problem rather than just a way to solve formulae, and that’s made all the difference in parsing math textbooks.
