What are the best sources to study math - Quiet a frequent question! Just today only I had a clash with a student since he was asking for permission to access my paid courses for free. I ended up shutting him down since he was going abusive stating I work for money in spite of the fact that 90% of my real content is free but the fun part was that he ended up saying
- I AM DOING WHAT I CAN, IT HARDLY MATTERS ON SOURCES what he wanted to signify was - f*** off i don't need your useless courses
Well, in his case rage caused the problem but I’m about to highlight this issue Since many students take SUCH STATEMENTS SERIOUSLY
A Good source may not necessarily the essential element for your achievements but it largely impacts - sometimes impactful enough to lead you to remorse
#turning likes to dislikes
Coming to the point: No source is 100% perfect and the most important source which should be wisely taken care of is already in your head! Like for example, the moment I came to know that we can’t solve the Integration of e^(x^2) using standard methods...I brought 5 - chart papers | bunch of markers | pens |…. To create my own math by altering the very basics of integration and lead it to a totally different format! - where the area of the function could be illustrated...quiet a bold step..lol!
I ended up getting exhausted and obviously it was a failure but the amount of clarity I gained about the construction of integration was uncomparable than the best of my teacher’s teachings!
Conclusion: Did I used any external source here? - No! Still, it proved out to be miraculous - hence, I’ll again say: THE BEST SOURCE IS IN YOUR HEAD
Now let’s deal with analytics! Though in my perspective I have already said 99% of the relevant stuff I have. But people demand “FROM WHERE TO STUDY” in the name of sources .. so, I’d fulfill that also
There is no Indian source to study math the way it should be!
3B1B - Just the name is enough, AOPS, Let’s solve math problems, Brilliant, MIT OCW
Mathon go is best we have ( acc to me ) some people might get offended because I haven’t mentioned the name of their star teacher! Well I respect efforts of everyone but I have my own set of code to judge on the basis of what’s profitable or not irrespective of it being good or bad
