Hello all, I'm 23 years old and I've decided to start studying math in my spare time. Having dropped out of school and not knowing anything behond basic arithmetic, still struggle with percentage, fraction, long division and multiplication questions. I hate to read books I much prefer learning in an interactive based way. Also I hate questions which have multiple lines of text and I get confused as to what the question is actually asking me.
6 + ? = 8 is so much easier than a question such as
Jim has 2 apples, Rob has 1 apple, Katy has 3 apples, how many more apples do they need to make 8?
Of course I can do simple questions like this if anyone can link me do something that would be best suited to my learning style that would be amazing. Also after I get the hang of percentage, fraction, long division and multiplication questions, what would I go onto next? Most people will say algebra but I've come to notice that algebra is such a large area and there are so many sub categories I don't know where to start. I know I'm being ambitious but I'd like to eventually take a stab at calculus and differential equations.
