    Starting to learn

    Hi guys, im no good at math and i want to start learning it. It seems there is a lot of different types of math so i want to start out in the best order for a beginner because trying to learn all at once is very confusing. So now i have a shortlist, can you please tell me which order to learn these. Which should be learnt 1st etc...


    Algebra / Geometry / Trigonometry / Calculus /
    hexadecimal and binary number systems / Base numbers /
    Exponents / Angles / Pythagoras Theorem

    Do some of these fall under each other? Like does Pythagoras Theorem fall under Geometry?

    Thanks all

    Re: Starting to learn

    Algebra is usually the starting point, then usually simple geometry then trigonometry, but in my opinion, u can go directly from algebra to trigonometry to calculus without really much geometry. I Wouldn't worry too much about different base number systems. In my opinion, math is pretty interconnected, think of different branch of mathematics as using different approaches and tools to study mathematics. But just do this Algebra --> Geometry --> Trig --> Calculus, that is the typical high school route in the us and it seems to work good for the kids who put some effort into learning them.
