Intro

Hello, my name is Ron Spain, age 38, male, and I am located near Rocky Mount, a city on the Tar River in the state of North Carolina in the USA.

I came here to try to help people when I can by answering their questions about science using what I can remember from my past studies, and maybe to ask a few questions myself.

Students should avail themselves of websites like this and other resources such as online encyclopedias, free/open source science- and math-related software, online tutorials, etc. I like so-called cheat-sheets - not for cheating on any test but for keeping things like electrical formulae readily available for everyday use. I have papers covered with formulas and other useful things on my walls, and this is very helpful sometimes.

You're welcome, Ron

Could your recommend something for the person your age to refresh their math knowledge? I need it for better understanding of QM and SR.

Thank you. I might share some of my cheatsheets when they are a bit more organized.

To refresh one's math knowledge, I could recommend your local library, another great resource for students and learners that I neglected to mention earlier. For those who are inclined to program computers, making simple programs can help understand various things in mathematics. Making simple games and simulations taught me a lot, but making simple programs was easy in 1980s and '90s BASIC language.
