Hi,

I find mathematics very interesting and fun and would like to progress beyond what I am taught at school at this moment. In other words, I want to study math at home and wonder what the best way would be? Take a trip to the local library? Might be hard to find english math books since I reside in Sweden.

So what should I do and since I can't really say what we're at but it should be rather basic, algebra and forward.

But please, write any good books anyway since I might find them on Amazon and so forth.

What is your current level of education in mathematics ?

For just basic algebra I would suggest that you go to the nearest unversity book store and purchase whatever text they are using for introductory college algebra.

The thing is, I'm not really sure how to describe my current level. Plus the fact that I haven't studied math in english for long which would mean I need a bit more basic than swedish. So algebra would probably be right.

Let's try this. Which of the following are familiar to you?

the quadratic formula

polynomial addition, subtraction and multiplication

sine, cosine, tangent

trigonometric identities

the square root of -1

the complex number system including conjugates and the fundamental theorem of algebra

derivatives

integrals

limits of infinite sequences

infinte series, particularly Taylor series

vector addition

dot products and vector cross products

partial derivatives

the gradient of a scalar function

divergence and curl

BTW your English seems quite good. It is a LOT better than my Swedish (which is non-existent) or even my German.
