Did you guys know that according to modern mathematics it's impossible in general to add small natural numbers, perform operations like 1+2=3 etc. In general with natural numbers all you can do is repeat the question. Everyone should mock modern mathematicians relentlessly for this.

but you can make pseudoephedrine from meth can't you?

He simply had a list of paired datapoints, something like (student_IQ; student_grade). He wants to find out if IQ correlates with grades, but first he makes a new paired dataset, ordering the values independently, i.e lowest IQ with the lowest grade.

No shit you get nice correlations this way and no shit this destroys the data. The guy is a retard for even asking this question.

Not as intros to these subjects (e.g. as an undergrad) because they're quite advanced. More useful to a grad student, IMO.

More to the point, I think each of these subjects has a better specific textbook, but it's pretty amazing as an all-in-one course.

My advice on textbook is that you should take the time to find a book (or other resource) that works for you. Many times I have had epiphanies on difficult topics just by reading a new textbook and seeing the same idea presented in a slightly different way.

Reminds me of how I was a giga retard and instead of memorizing math formulas and using them to solve problems, I would spend hours attempting to solve math problems I didn't know how to solve only to find out I essentially came up with a bunch of well known math formulas.
Or how I would send 5 hours thinking about
>but what is X squared or 2 squared, what about a squared, on a two dimensional plane it's the length and width multiplied with each other which gives essentially a new plane of depth a height, so what would a three dimensional object like an apple squared be like, ah yes it's hard to imagine because I am trying to percieve essentially a dimension beyond my current existence, much like somebody o n a 2 plant trying to imagine 3d by thinking of how 3d objects would cast a shadow on 2d plane
>same thing for square root
Or functions and well anything really. I would spend countless hours thinking about shit nobody cares about and was the retard that could never pass things I don't understand because just memorizing things was not a skill I possessed. My mind would resit any knowledge I don't intimately understand.

This is actually a huge strength but you have to wield/harness it.

>>12584303
>This is actually a huge strength but you have to wield/harness it.
I don't think you understand how much of a downside that is in the modern education system where you leanr a bunch of shit really fast in a passing manner.
Sure I am expert that can construct and deconstruct any knowledge I have assimilated, but nobody values that in terms of grades. Everything I learned I remember to this day and more importantly understand it and how to apply it to other things naturally. However I could never keep up with the pace of "okay we are going to superficially touch on this, and this and moving on this an that"
I think it's because I think in terms of images, space relations and so on. So when ever I hear a mathematical or physics formula for me to even have hope of remembering it I have to deconstruct the words into physical relations to each other.
Anyway other kids would pass with flying colors and not remember what they learned by next year, Id barely pass and remember everything I learned. Guess who got through life with flying colors an who the retard is.

Science is a lot like religion.
the followers only use it when it benefits them and ignore anything that might make them uncomfortable.

You're talking about pop sci shit and mass media representation of social science shit, clickbait titles etc... People doing advanced researched about particles physics for instance don't have anything to do with what you're describing.
Read some of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anyon and tell me this is a religion. There is "Science" as a practice in a lab, and """science""" as a political buzzword. Please don't mix up the two ,thank you.
