|I'm kind of an pariah in the CS world as I was unlucky enough to have multiple terrible math teachers as a kid and don't have what I would consider a strong math background. I've never really enjoyed math as much as I think I should, even though I've always loved programming and even 'math puzzles' from time to time.|
I've noticed in recent years that my math skills are much higher than they should be considering my lack of major education in that area (College Algebra is about it). This has come up working with colleagues or just taking some fun online IQ tests where I scored highest in math even though I've always been led to believe I suck at it.
I'm wondering what HN readers would recommend to someone like me as a good avenue to relearn some basics and then move into areas I've only scratch the service of such as geometry and trig?
