    What is Your Highest Level of Mathematics and Why?

    What is your highest level of mathematics and why is it your highest level?

    My highest level is two graduate level courses. I took them as an undergrad. in two separate independent studies. I had enjoyed some areas of mathematics and was also interested in learning others that were only offered as courses to grad. students. I have stopped doing mathematics currently because I feel that there are more important areas for me to learn and contribute towards, esp. areas that could further help me in mathematics should I ever feel that mathematics will become an important subject to spend my time contributing towards.

    I double majored in business and math in undergrad and have since taken some graduate level courses in game theory, econometrics and linear programming. Most of my fellow students were INTx engineers and the like.

    My job is about 60% people related and 40% analytical (I run an investment advisory firm). I took the courses in order to bolster my mathmatics background in order to better tweak the financial models I use.

    I gave up math around 2 months, and now I feel free I tell you! Free, to spread my wings academically and finally pull up my average!

    Umm, is it wrong to say 'random'? I learn theories of math that I find interesting.

    HS math just sucks balls. I just want to spend my last year of high school on subjects I'm actually good at and enjoy school without the stress of knowing I'm failing one of my classes.

    Well, I did 3 years of math in high school. I got up to Precalculus, got a D first semester and a B second semester.
    I honestly like math, but only when I understand it. When I took Precal, I didn't pay attention in class at all and therefore suffered majorly and gave up trying.

    Unfortunately, I have to take Precal over again in fall, and then beginning Biometry (what even is biometry anyways?) before I turn a junior. Not too bad, I s'pose . Perhaps it may respark an interest in math for myself? I hope so.

    As a process engineer and economist I spend all day doing maths in one way or the other. I hit my limit with Conformal Mapping and ODE's. Totally baffling! Fortunately I don't have to deal with these at work :D

    I failed my GCSE Maths exam twice, before getting a high D that was a couple of points away from a C.

    I find I struggle more with 'Solid' math, but can pick up theoretical math easily. <3 Game Theory as many people probably know...


    I love employing math tricks for my basic math. You guys who are failing in math. If you want I can point out some good trick videos for you. I have them somewhere on one of my old youtube accounts.

    I got something in the B range in Precal. It was thoroughly meh. I was more involved with the graphing calc competitions I had with my INTJ math genius buddy. We would see who could come up with more awesome graphs. He pretty much always won, by graphing fractals (how the hell did he do that?!). He also got straight A's, if I recall correctly.

    Anyway, I think what you mean is "biometrics," which is using certain biological features to uniquely identify people, such as fingerprints, ear prints, gait, and voice recognition. I think it's mostly connected to math through statistical analysis, but I could be wrong.

    I remember a so-called Vedic trick for multiplication. It helps somewhat. Anyway, I totally fail at mental math. I can't even keep the numbers I'm supposed to operate on in my head long enough to do the calculations, and certainly not the result.
