Homework Help: Self-Taught Mathematicians

Posted by Guido on Friday, February 22, 2008 at 4:26pm.

Those of us who love math certainly know two basic facts about Mr. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz:

(1) He and Newton (our calculus guy) did not get along

AND

(2) Mr. Leibniz was a self-taught mathematician

My question is for all tutors here who love math.

What is your view of people who are self-taught in math?

For example, I took several math courses as an undergraduate student but most of my math skills derive from self-teaching through textbooks, math instructional dvds and videos.

Can a person who is self-taught in mathematics compete with someone who majored in math?

Thanks
