Mathematics Course (Maybe)?
« on: April 03, 2020, 02:30:55 PM »

It's been suggested that I offer some kind of math course here, and maybe I will. First I would need to know if people are interested at all, and what they are interested in.

I am certainly interested (I have, heaven help us!, a master's degree in mathematic), and I can be of help here - but I'm a lousy teacher.

Assuming that we want to look at interesting mathematics (rather than just currently useful mathematics), then the classes of numbers are great fun - counting numbers, integers, rational, real, algebraic, transcendental, complex, etc. And, no, there is not just one sentence to be said about each of them.
