Welcome back to the new semester!
I’m going to try something a little different in this post. A lot of my favorite topics to write about have come from people asking me questions about math.
So, here goes: what questions do you have about math? What concept have you sort of learned but never really understood? What idea bothers you philosophically? What technique do you wish you knew how to do? What idea do you feel you know, but when you think about it, it seems fuzzy?
Do you want to know what calculus is for? How to read summation notation? When it’s okay to use calculators? What “dimension” means?
Ask me your questions! I’ll try to address them in future posts.
