hello /sci/ i'd love to learn math by myself, i've learnt enough programming that now what keeps me from getting any better are my poor math skills, ialways ignored the subject but now i'm fascinted to it.

Writing something like a rotating donut in my terminal, an audio compression algorithm and maybe a game engine applying 3D graphics fascinates me SO DAMN MUCH.

But i don't know where to start.
I did learn some stuff by myself like what are functions, inverse functions.. log and other basic stuff.

At school we started trigonometry but the way they teach it sucks, i'm just applying formulas and i don't feel this is the right way to learn the math.

How and where should i learn? It's my first thread on 4chan pls be gentle

Math not Politics

No.12594314 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Sincerely, I'm trying to understand the statistics of this without any consideration of politics. The boards are normally visit are too polarized down partisan lines to be helpful. Please, no political discussion in thread.

I know enough about statistics to realize how dishonestly they are presented much of the time. Often variables are ignored and blatantly false claims of causation equaling correlation are made.

Can anyone on /sci/ help me figure out what to make of the below claims? Alone, they're like whatever but together they kind of paint a picture. I don't want to parrot false information though.

>Biden is will be the first President in history to win while losing both Ohio and Florida. Obama and Trump both won Ohio, Florida and Iowa. Biden lost all three.

>Both Biden and Trump received millions more votes than any Presidential candidate in history. The assertion being this doesn't make sense.

>Trump was vastly in the lead until mail in votes dumped some of which were over 99% for Biden, statistically impossible

and so on...

Again, I'm trying to understand how to get an actual analytical mathematics view of all this. I apologize.

Death by lockdown

The age group with the largest % increases in deaths this year is adults ages 25-44.

Since they aren’t dying of COVID, clearly they must be dying from lockdown measures.

OTC antihistamines

No.12602930 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Is there a more useless product than over-the-counter antihistamines? During hayfever season, you might as well be eating sugar pills. I say ditch that shit and get some prescription-strength stuff
