I wanted to ask these questions here, feeling that this place place is without doubt is better than anywhere else, feeling hesitant and shy to ask such question.
For several reasons, the environment which I live in doesn't encourage the learning of natural sciences, it permits it but doesn't put efforts in teaching it.
As a result I missed a great deal of exciting things as I went to college which show me the several weak points I developed through the years.
Being taught by other people who came from different locations, environments cultures.
I could see the huge contrast.
Feeling the pain of such experience, I decided to relearn everything form scratch.
Beginning from basics of math.
Now that I'm studying in college Computer Information Systems, I have some college level Math courses (Calc 1, Calc 2, Discrete Math, Linear algebra and some other courses like QA). And I am delaying them to prepare myself to accomplish basic courses like algebra1, algebra2, Geometry, College algebra,Trignometry.
When I think about it. I found that I don't have the time (though I enjoy them+ feeling pain that I missed learning them properly) to do like all these algebra courses in a short time.
The question is:
Is it ok just to take a quick review algebra 1,2 using (cliffs notes) then study this college algebra book College Algebra and Trigonometry or should I finish algebra 1 then jump into this book, as I find algebra one some how very easy!
I actually want to shorten the time to focus on geometry, so I guess learning geometry prepares me for trignometry and learning algebra 1 (at least) prepares me for college algebra which leads to higher mathematics.
Thank you for your time.
