Is it possible to teach yourself applied maths.

Just wondering. We don't have an applied maths teacher in our school and i'am wondering if it's possible to be thought by yourself

ive been doing on my own and i think if you start in 5th year and/or really enjoy and do well in maths its completely fine. If you do start in fifth year its great because you can take you time and use midterms and breaks to your advantage to get chapters done. Ive nearly done a whole chapter in the last 2 days of midterm because i was getting bored of netflix all day everyday. if you enjoy maths its really rewarding when you check the back of the book and your answers are right. I will say that when i first started in september i found it pretty challenging and would often make mistakes and get the wrong answer but after doing maths in school for a while i found that helped me to improve which helped applied maths get easier.

I study Applied Maths on my own. I’ve only been doing it for the past two months and I do find it hard. Sometimes I hate the subject and go through a phase where everything is difficult amd sometimes I love it becuse I’m doing well. I’d say if you prefer biology, do biology as I think u enjoy the subject. Physics can be studied without applied maths and I enjoy it loads even if I’m self studyig that too cuz our teacher always contradicts herself and teaches us the wrong things. Study biology but I’d consider adding chemistry onto your list as it has elements of both maths and learning off definitions.

I think it's definitely possible too with some effort. A high percentage of students get either a H1 or H2 but there is a selection effect as many of the students that do Applied Maths enjoy maths. If you need tips around the exam technique or lessons then contact me via gary dot sheridan at gmail dot com. Cheers
