Having been maths-averse for much of my life, personal development and career goals now demand that I make up for lost time and educate myself to a fairly competent level. Since I am beyond my learning-centric College years, the standard option of attending a decent Unversity and following a degree plan are sadly in my rear-view mirror, which brings me here to seek the advice of those who might be able to articulate the options.
I accept that learning is 90% state of mind, and from here forward reject my previous school-age copouts of "not being a math person" as excuses which served only to hold myself back. But I've got a lot of catching up to do.
If I were going to start from the ground up, would there be a preferable way to begin? A Google search shows some resources, but nothing like a concrete plan for progressing from one foundation of knowledge to other. If my goal is start with the fundamentals, and proceed towards a fairly articulate understanding of engineering and physics, what might be my best use of time?
Difficult level: currently deployed, so the ubiquitous Internet is my only option for a good while. I may need to start at an embarrassingly remedial level.
I am aware that this endeavor will require a serious amount of hard work and may possibly take years. Totally okay with that, just hoping I can avoid a needless waste of time flailing around in my ignorance while attempting to find the most suitable path as I begin.
