Does is really look like this?

Although always interested in math, I've never had the opportunity to have a formal math education. I have been kicking around the idea of going back to school to pursue an advanced degree in math, because, well..math just really interests me. I mean, who else do you know who actually reads stuff like this for fun?

There are also other ways of thinking mathematically that have always appealed to me. For example, I find myself being fascinated by beautiful patterns - whether man-made, or in nature. And then there's the musical connection too...ah so, little time, so much to see; I guess that's why this blog is called 'Contagious Curiousity', right?

Have you read this book: http://www.amazon.com/New-Kind-Science-Stephen-Wolfram/dp/1579550088/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-4366817-8417750?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1182457098&sr=8-1

I’m no maths geek but I found it fascinating…

I have read it and I enjoyed it.

Mathematica is a very cool program!

I’m only scratching the surface of it since I am using it in my continuing math education.

Strangely, when I was younger, I was never much of a math geek. But, as I get older, I find it a very useful skill to have.

Besides, isn’t math what us programmer types do for fun? ðŸ˜‰
