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.

Thanks.

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.

No, it is not necessary. Even the math geniuses need to suffer through their requirement classes.

>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.

It's /sci/'s dream curriculum

Thanks for all your input guys.

But I wanted to know where to begin to get at Math?

Can I trust the /sci/ wiki recommendations?

>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.

It's a sci meme... like $300k starting salary. "Differential Geometry should be taught to 12 year olds" blah blah blah.

>not learning different geometry at 8

>pleb

Usually it's is not necessary but if you want to prepare for your PhD in triple integrals every little helps

>meanwhile in Korea 5th graders learning Calculus

meme more, white men.

It's aimed at those whose chosen field is math, and this is what mathematicians do.

No shit nigger. The chem section is heavily aimed at studying chemistry without theoretical physics.
