Continuing my studies...
Hello,
I'm currently looking for books and/or websites to further my studies in mathematics. I'm in 8th grade, so I am taking Algebra I as of now, but having aced nearly every single assignment given to me (On top of having read through all of my math book already and doing the practice pages for "fun") I feel as if I can go further, in hopes of disrupting the monotinous boredom in math class. However, I'm not sure of what direction I should take. I do NOT know if I should take Geometry > Algebra II > Trig > Pre Calc and so forth, or whatever. I was hoping some of you math experts or whomever could help me, and recommend books/sites on furthering my studies. Thanks... :)

Uh, math will either be boring or painful no matter how much you know or don't know. Since you're only in eighth grade, I would advise you to take it easy. Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II are pretty straightforward and easyA classes. The horror begins when you hit PreCalc, which I think is the same as Trig.

Calculus
Strange thing is "Calculus".
They teach it in American schools. I never heard of it until I saw an american movie. Its was something which they didnt teach me in school. Im still not actually sure what it is lol

math is fun and those who consider it boring often dont understand the beuaty in it.
Calculus is the part of math dealing with change and areas of functions

Calculus lets you buy the eaxact amount of concrete for that wierd curvy undulating path,  or can make you a fortune by showing how to put the most beans in the tin with the least surface area and maximum packing density. I think it has even been used to design 'bras'. :wink:
