I have a few questions I hope you can help me answer.
First, I'll introduce myself. I'm a finance undergraduate student in Australia, but I'm originally from Norway. Throughout school I always loved math, but I ended up studying finance. The last year or so I have started to realise that I should have done Computer Science or Engineering in stead, as I would like to see myself in a quant role when I finish studying. Even so, I've decided to finish this finance degree.
The last month or so I've started programming in C++, and refreshing up on my maths knowledge (Khan Academy, algebra, precalculus). My problem is I don't know where to go from here, and what order I should be learning the different branches of math.
I've picked up a book on linear algebra today; "Linear algebra and its applications" by Gilbert Strang. Do you think this is an alright place to start? Or do I start with basic calculus? And where can I go next? Differential equations?
I hope some of you can help me in the right direction. Thanks.
