I am such a nerd. I love math--always did from about 10 years of age. In high school, I went up to Calculus and got As. I never took any math at Community College because I didn't have to. I did get a job where I used math every day--printing estimator. I even solved word problems all the time. If I came up with something out of the ordinary, I would just turn it into a formula.
Since I have been retired, I don't have an outlet for my math skills, and I found I missed it. I have been playing around with the idea of relearning all the stuff I forgot from lack of use. I heard about the Kahn Academy, and I finally looked into it.
It is free on-line courses of the high school level. I tried out a lesson, and I realized that this kind of learning would work well for me.
I started Algebra I. As I go through it, I remember a lot of it, and for the most part, I am finding it easy. I have the same old usual problem I always had in high school--forgetting to bring down my negative signs!
One of the reasons for starting from the beginning is that I don't remember the terminology. Without that, it may be hard to understand the explanations on the harder math
Since this is fun, I believe I will keep going with it at least through this course for now. It would be awesome to get as far as Calculus, but it could take a few years to get that far. I am sure it won't remain so easy as I climb out the early courses.
