Self-education is a passion of mine. For some time now I've been aware that mathematics is a major gap in my knowledge: All I retain from grammar school is some basic algebra and trigonometry. I've lost quadratics and definitely lost calculus. I'd like to address my ignorance and set a long-term goal of getting to a level of ability that where I have mastered secondary school maths and can look to studying the university-level mysteries.
I have no wish to enrol in a class, or hire a private tutor; I'm picky about having control of my personal time and who I see. I would much prefer to study from books or self-paced teaching packages. Any suggestions as to what books or software might be helpful?
