Hey there folks,
I would really appreciate some advice. I'm in the position of studying mathematics at university, having been away from the subject for about 5 or 6 years. I'm in my second year of doing maths, and I feel like I'm watching a movie without subtitles or sound. I'm presented with all the topics, and notation ... but, none of it is really forming a "story" or "big picture" in my head. I can work through exercises, but, I don't really understand what it is I'm even achieving by getting an answer.
Where does a journey of mathematics need to begin, if I really want to understand a discipline which is alluding me?
I'm guessing stepping back to the "pre-" sections might be sensible.
