Advanced Mathematics and Me

Suffice to say advanced mathematics and me do not have an easy working relationship. I can do the really basic stuff, at a push: Basic algebra, basic geometry, and my general arithmetical skills are reasonably OK.

The world of trigonometry only really makes sense to me as far as Pythagoras goes – ‘The square of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the opposite two sides’. Yeah baby! But introduce any minimal mention of sines or cosines and before you know it my mind is veering off at a tangent all by itself.

And as for calculus… er…no… just no. In my world, calculus simply does not compute, in any shape or form. I understand the complexities of emotional dysfunctions far more readily than even beginning to comprehend logical functions, and in my decidedly non-rational mind there is absolutely no need for a mathematical proof to show that for me, f(x)=ffs! 🙂
