## Introduction

Math at its core is about establishing truths separate from sensual qualities, seeking patterns based upon these truths, systematically removing contradictions/inconsistencies from the patterns, and formulating conjectures with all of the above in mind. It is the one true language apart from reality which ironically makes it so useful.

The application of math in any field is considered a specialization
which requires a significant amount of skill to which contemporary
cultures try to measure. While math is commonly used in scientific fields, it is not a subset of them. In fact, the application of math to scientific fields is generally considered THE advancement of science. Unfortunately, due to this schism between what math is predicated on (formal logic) and what common language is predicated on (reality), the study of math for any scientific field is considered distinct and being less emphasized in education.

Here we wish to provide resources which will help you to develop mathematical skills for where ever you choose to apply them.

## Guides

Mathematics First Year Undergraduate Education (by an Anon) (Reiterating that this is for math majors, and is actually more like a full undergraduate education than one year)

Books in the maths first year undergraduate guide:

- James Stewart's Single Variable Calculus [d]
- Spivak's
*Calculus* (3rd edition is best) is preferred for learning mathematics rigorously (that is, with proofs) [d]

- Intro to proofs book- Daniel J. Velleman's
*How to Prove It: A Structured Approach* and Joseph J. Rotman's *Journey Into Mathemathics: An Introduction to Proofs* are good, but most proofs books will do
- ???
- Walter Rudin,
*Principles of Mathematical Analysis* [d] (Baby Rudin)

- Walter Rudin,
*Real and Complex Analysis* [a] [d] [s] (Papa Rudin is not even close to core undergrad material, and isn't even the best book for its subject) - Apostol,
*Calculus*
