What's the general consensus about this here?
Pardon me if it has been asked before.
I'm in high school and want to excel in mathematics. Wanted to know the opinion of all you /sci/entists.
That picture is retarded as fuck. First of all it won't make you a "math monk" but only puts you on the level of a first semester undergrad. Secondly it is impossible to study PDE before analysis.
>first semester undergrad has learned all of calc, linear algebra, set theory, mathematical logic, combinatorics, graph theory, number theory, numerical analysis, differential geometry, probability, PDEs, abstract algebra, topology, and analysis
am i retarded? is this normal somewhere? are there high schools teaching PDEs, abstract algebra, analysis, and topology? are there high schools teaching math quickly and efficiently enough that you could learn all this going into you first semester as an undergrad ? what are you learning in undergrad if not this stuff?
Short answer: no, no high school teaches these things
However I did take most of those classes in high school, but that was at a local college, and was highly unusual.
The pic in OP outlines what an undergrad should know upon graduation, more or less
Thomas Jefferson High School. It's not normal, know a guy getting his PHD at Stanford that attended. When I found out what he was doing in high school, made me jealous and feel like a retard.
>Secondly it is impossible to study PDE before analysis
Tell that to the engineers and physicists.
>but only puts you on the level of a first semester undergrad
Only at Princeton.
>First of all it won't make you a "math monk"
The context was someone wanted to self study math up to the undergrad level.
>is this normal somewhere
It's /sci/'s dream curriculum
>Can I trust the /sci/ wiki recommendations?
It's not a bad place, but the wiki section on math is heavily aimed at studying math autistically rigurously.
If you just want to get started, Paul's Online notes and Schaums Outlines are more than good enough.
