I'm (amongst other things) an autodidact programmer. Quite often I'll run into computing problems that I realize are well understood, I'll do a google and find some papers outlining algorithms that tackles the problem. Sprinkled in the text there's infallibly some mathematical formulas. That's were my troubles begin ;) One part of the problem is simply not being familiar mathematical notation. Once I grasp what the formula express I usually have no problem understanding the concept. If the formula had been expressed in pseudo code, I'd have an easier time following along. I've recently found out about Mathematica and it seems like it could be a great learning tool for someone like me. If I understand things correctly, Mathematica will let me enter formulas in the syntax of a programming language and then render them in standard mathematical notation, right? Now, to optimize this self study program, all I need is a great text book that uses Mathematica to teach math. Preferably the book should start with recapitulating high school math and than move on to undergraduate levels. TIA alex -- Alex Polite
