Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Go to courses that some institutions offer, like Coursera or Khan academy. Or if you are capable of self learning, you can download books and read them on your own. Or you can visit a magical place filled with knowledge... It is rumored that it's called "library".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't like online courses. everyone learns differently. personally, different combinations of videos, problems, and textbooks has worked for me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yah Math and Khan videos are helpful. I think the best way to learn math is to practice the problems.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For lower level math Khan is great. For upper level math, there is usually a few books that are pretty standard and free on the internet depending on the subject. The great thing about math for the most part is that the notation is universal. The only thing that stops someone from learning math is the drive to want to learn it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1best way to learn math is  1) sit on ur desk 2) bring 23 math books 3) start solving problems nd read the theory and all if u get confused then see what the other books say nd then if u have some doubts or really nice questions :) then come to the internet nd get ur doubts cleared+ u may get some other beautiful ways to solve the really nice question. but do u want to study it all on the internet? or u want to study like book+internet?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are some nice series of youtubes on a subjects which have the feeling of Khan Academy but can cover more ground. For instance there is a series of topology videos, or a series of abstract algebra videos. Aside from that, you can find good books. I like the videos because they give an entry point into the subject.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2There are many good ideas presented so far, and I agree with most of them. This is what I see: Attitude: 1. You need the drive to learn math 2. The best way to learn math is NOT to memorize, strive to UNDERSTAND, and be curious as to why, e.g. dig up proofs, do not take theorems for granted, this helps you understand. 3. read about the same subject from more than once source to confirm information, and most of all, confirm understanding. Methods: Everyone has a different preference and best way to learn, here are some suggestions, choose what works for you. 1. read books, tutorials, Khan's Academy,... try them out and find the best reading. 2. take notes as you read, so you can refresh your understanding when necessary. Some people organize information and make links in the brain as they write intelligible notes. They may not even go back to the notes. 3. Do exercise, help others on the same subject, discuss, learn. (OS is a great place for this activity). 4. Ask for help if you need any.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0TL;DR: Be absolutely curious. Discuss your understandings with someone. Teaching someone is one of the best way to learn. If you can't teach it, you don't understand it, at least not fully. Chat with someone on things that you know. Different people have different perspective and it could really open your mind. Be curious and keep asking why. If you find something curious, search it online. If you are not free to search it now, write it down and search it later. For me, I have learned a lot of things by procrastinating on Wikipedia a clicking links that I find interesting. Ironically, I think I learned more by procrastinating on Wikipedia than in school. Understand proofs. Read different proofs of the same theorem to get a better idea of the theorem. In proofs, no lines are unnecessary. If it is in the proof, there is a reason why it is in the proof (at least for good proofs). Understand the reason(s) for every line of the proof. Compare different proofs and try to understand why different authors prove the theorem in different ways. Is it because of its simplicity? Is it because it is intuitive? Is it because it is elegant? A lot of proofs are available on ProofWiki. For books, read review online. Search for "xxx book recommendation". You are almost guaranteed to find someone asking for a book recommendation on some math subject. Especially for Calculus and Linear Algebra. Use Google. If you are not at research level and you have some math problem that you can't solve, chances are someone online has already asked it and someone else has answered it. Contrary to conventional wisdom, buy a computer algebra system (CAS) like Maple or Mathematica or Matlab if you have the money. If there are no answer to your problem on the internet, try to use CAS to solve it. The answer may reveal the way to solve the problem. Plus you could use CAS to do fun calculations. I used Mathematica to model gun recoil in a FPS game and how The Black Cleaver was better then Last Whisperer in LoL back in Season 2. For online resources, Paul's Math Notes is quite good. I find Khan Academy too slow for me. I have never used Coursera, edX or MIT online education thingy so no opinions on them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If you don't want to spend a few hundred dollars and more on Maple, Mathlab or Mathematica, try Maxima. It's free, and does an amazing job. It actually surpasses some paid packages in many respects. (wonder why they all start with the letter M) lol.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Maxima is a derivative of Macsyma. My guess is that the name Mathematica is probably from Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica by Newton. Maple is a reference of Canadian heritage as it is invented by University of Waterloo in Canada. Sources from Wikipedia.
