Math it up.
October 27, 2011 11:27 AM Subscribe
I used to be math nerd, but I've forgotten most of it because, despite what I was told in high school, I don't use vector calculus in the Real World. I've used textbooks to brush up on old topics before, but self-imposed homework just isn't very fun. What hobbies/projects/??? can I take up to take advantage of any derive enjoyment again from my math background?

If the specifics are important, I went to a math and science magnet high school where I went as far as differential equations, vector calculus, AP physics, some light electricity and magnetism, and just for fun, some mental math competitions. Despite this and to the weeping and gnashing of old teachers I became an artist who doesn't do anything much related to math. So, major bonus points if your suggestion involves producing a thing of some kind.
