There hasn't been much activity on this group in a while so I thought I'd bump it. This is one of my favorite groups, there's just not enough awarness for or much stuff to do here.

Oh, and @Astroskylark: It may sound odd, but I learn a lot of math (and other things) from reading Wikipedia because you can instantly link to related topics and find explanations for parts that you don't understand.

For example, if you look at the Trigonometry article, you'll get an overview of what it is and a rough idea of how it works. Then I'm pretty sure the first place you'll get confused is when it starts talking about "trigonometric functions". So you click on that link and read some on that. You'll get an overview of that, and you'll look up things you don't understand, like maybe "unit circle" and "radians". Eventually, if you're persistent, you'll work your way through a huge amount of information and have a fair understanding of trig.

As you're doing that, if you have any questions that you can't answer by way of Wikipedia (or maybe Google in some cases), I'm certain that anyone here will be more than happy to help you out. :-)

I have no idea how to start teaching myself. Any tips or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I wish I knew advanced math... They math they teach you in 7th grade is so easy, and I'm ready to move on, but I just can't seem to teach myself math, and no one in my family can help me beyond advanced algebra, which I have a good handle on. Is anyone out there willing to mentor trigonometry or geometry?

i'm stuck in advanced math in 7th grade (pre algebra early algebra 1) when last year when i was homeschooled i made it straight through my algebra 1 book ing 4 months- it is so painful

I'm just really bad with geometry even though it should be the easiest.

I like math, I hate geometry though.
