Re: Becoming A Mathematician

You must decide what level of accomplishment will constitute "mathematician". In your head, it will be different from society's opinion.

Re: Becoming A Mathematician

What I define as being a mathematician is the ability to understand not memorize math by:

I. Perception - By perception I mean being able to draw the situation, observe the actions, and deduce variables.

II. Logic - By logic I mean being able to manipulate variables in more than one way to achieve the desire state.

III. Rate - By rate I mean being able to perceive and reason faster with accuracy and precision over time.

IV. Pleasure - By pleasure I mean being motivated by an interest to solve a problem due to the product of accomplishment or potential application.

V. Usage - By usage I mean the frequent subconscious use of math because of its relation to the everyday events observed in one's life and imagination.

Achieving these states would be my level of accomplishment. I just don't know where to start.

Re: Becoming A Mathematician

Okay, by your definition, I was a mathematician in the 2nd Grade.

You'll probably need to define a minimum level of understanding and experience.
