As a hobbyist programmer with little to no math skills (no science skills either, thank you religious schools) I am finding math encroaching on my life more and more often. I have always laughed and said that I'm just not good at math because my brain doesn't work like that.
My younger brother challenged me recently claiming that it wasn't a lack of ability that kept higher math out of my hands but a lack of interest. Because my current realm of studies is really starting to delve into 3D modeling, programming for web, mobile and desktop, I feel that a stronger math skill set would benefit me immensely.
But I don't know where to start...
I'm wondering if there is a math version similar to: http://www.code.org/khan-academy
Some place where I can go and start challenging my brain, increasing my math as often as I have time? Some place online? I would also appreciate any tips for books or other resources that would be recommended for someone wanting to ignite an interest in math.
To give a background, my highest level of math in school was pre-algebra in 7th grade. After that the schools my parents sent me to didn't teach higher math (nor evolution) so when I hit college, I had to get a tutor to pass (with a C) the College Level Algebra... I barely did it and it was so long ago I don't remember anything I learned.
I hope this is the right place to ask this... I stumbled across math.stackexchange by accident. Whether this question gets answered or not I will start browsing around and seeing what all there is...
