A few days ago, I suddenly felt this weird urge of solving some mathematical problems. Ah… my long term love-hate relationship with mathematics. Even though it was never a subject which totally excites me, I did have much opportunity, exposure and experience in the matter. At its peak, my computation skills reached university level in the mid-90s and I was able to solve really complex calculations. It all seems unreal now. I just cannot imagine myself solving any advanced mathematical problems. The once solvable complexities look like an alien language from beyond the stars. Damn, I used to have a super power! And I tossed this away when I changed course in life and went to business school.
Reading about mathematics led me from one obscure topic to the next. Despite the fact that I can hardly make any sense of the things I read regarding the topic, the fascination and the urge to be able to once again possess this ability is lingering.
Are there any websites out there which provide mathematical entertainment to people like me? Why this sudden need to dive back into a subject that I left behind so long ago?
