    Your Favorite Math Course

    What is your favorite math course? Why is it your favorite? Calculus 1 and 2 are my favorite courses with precalculus coming in third place.

    Re: Your Favorite Math Course

    I have little idea of what topology is about (just a faint idea), but I've heard of some of its interesting applications. Like you can figure out where you can use logic and where it's inapplicable. Has to do with topological spaces, I think.

    Is it true?

    I know nothing about topology. A lot of theories for sure....

    Topology is very far generalization of geometry

    No, its not. The is NO problem in which logic is inapplicable. "Topology" is essentially the study of "continuity".

    Re: Your Favorite Math Course

    The guy was a bit crazy and not very trustworthy, honestly, so I wasn't sure it was all true. Actually it was something along the lines of: you can't use logic if you consider elements from different topological spaces, whatever it means. So can't draw elements from one topological space to another.

    Are there uses of topology that I can understand now or you have to be more advanced?

    Go to youtube.com and search for Algebraic Topology by Australian math professor NJ Wildberger.

    Re: Your Favorite Math Course

    Thanks Not sure I'm ready for this though. I've read you need calc 3 under your belt. But I'll save the videos for later.

    I am not ready for topology. I just found the video for you. I am currently learning calculus 2. I am excited about calculus 3.
