First off, hello to all and glad to be here. Many advanced thanks for all the help I am sure I will receive here. I am no student, college or otherwise but having missed my chance to take that route I am now looking to further my interests that I neglected in my earlier years.
Science is really my main interest, but of course Science and Mathematics are very closely intertwined. That is not to say that math does not intrigue me, quite the contrary since everything in Science can be explained in terms of numbers. Only that my interest in learning math comes from my interest in the sciences. As of now, the extent of my understanding of math is only up to Algebra and Geometry which I studied in High School and have recently re-read to brush up and re-learn. I hope to take my understanding as far as I can but at the same time I do not have overly lofty goals.
Up until now I have been using the local library to learn and/or re-learn what I know and while that will still be a viable tool to use if need be, in this day and age it would be much more convenient and practical to do this online. For starters, only being able to check out a book for a few weeks at a time is not practical for trying to learn math (or any subject honestly). Another being the fact that doing something like this online means interactivity, something like short quizzes and chapter tests being worked into the material as well all the other resources the internet provides.
Which brings me to my main point/question. I am looking for good websites both for book reading and Mathematics learning. Something informative but also plain and "bloat free". Some nice Android apps would really help out as well, if anyone knows of any. Yes, I know how to Google search and have done so extensively and have found many good websites and resources and I plan on using them. But more information is never a bad thing and I figured I might as well find a good forum and see what the more knowledgeable have to say.
Again, many thanks in advance for any help.
