    Maths as a hobby

    Hi, I'm 15 and decided to take up maths as a hobby. The topics that interest me the most are: Game Theory, Cryptography and Algebra.

    I also want to learn other subjects involved with maths, but those 3 interest me the most.

    I need a link to a website with maths lessons or tutorials, because I can't find anything useful.

    Thankyou

    That is good that you picked subjects that you like. But you have to be sure that the topics you pick are challenging but not too challenging. I mean by that you should never pick something which you will not understand or the speed at which you learn it is way too slow because you are not experienced enough. A good way to know if the subject is just right for you is to use Google books and Amazon. Because these let you preview some parts of the book for free. Google books usually gives a lot more previews so it is better to try it first. And look through the books to see if it at the level you need it to be. You want to a link. The problem I have with links and online books is that usually not written as good as real books. Also it is easier to read a real book rather than sitting and reading it off your computer. I would recommend buying a book rather than searching for links.
