Alex7's blog

By Alex7, history, 4 years ago, In English,

I need a few advice about math in general. I'm gonna start college sometime this year and I wanna work on my mathematical background.

What are the field of math required for computer science?

What are some good sources to learn math and solve math problems?

:D

Maybe this is good source ProjectEuler. I didn't try, but I heard it's good.

"Good sources to learn and solve math problems."

If you are talking about math problems for competitive programming then you should check out project Euler. I am guessing that you already know about this.

If you are talking about math problems in general then you should visit the site — art of problem solving.

Some books may also help you for math problem solving eg. Putnam and beyond, Mathematical olympiad challenges, Mathematical olympiad treasures, art and craft of problem solving, etc.

You can find more information about books suitable for some specific topics over here — http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/wiki/index.php/Math_books

If you need a pdf of the book Putnam and beyond or the pdf file of the book art and craft of problem solving then you can message me and I'll send you the link to the pdf file.
