Good day. I am working in IT-related field, has a bachelor degree and intend to get graduate degree in Computer Science. Since it requires passing some math test I need to prepare for this exam.
During my university time I studied math, but I studied how TO SOLVE problem. For example: "Ok, I have a definite integral, so need to use Newton – Leibniz formula". Problem is that I did not understand why I use this formula, what does this formula mean - have no fundamental understanding of all.
During the weekends I read an article about Shinichi Mochizuki's and his work related to ABC-theory. I did understand nothing from a lot of math formulas, proofs, but was really impressed.
I have enough time to prepare for the exam. But I would like ask a question about some way not just to learn how TO SOLVE some task but about how TO UNDERSTAND mathematics? Not just for the exam but also for self-development. It is interesting I think.
