The Learning Section you see below is designed to teach you Math as comprehensively and efficiently as possible, while maintaining a low cost. There are tons of math education sources out there and we’ve spent countless hours determining the best ones for this goal.
Our Learning Page is designed to help you learn the math topics that are used in the professional world. Math is so poorly taught in our early years, where it’s all theoretical and teachers can’t explain how you’ll use it. We want to change that so you can bolster this important professional skill.
So for each math topic, we’ll advise you on some good learning sources and then help you with how it applies to other subjects (technology, business, science, etc). That way you can get the most out of your learning and know exactly where it will help you.
Refer to Section II below for all the math topics and the top places to learn each.
Reverse Tide is the internet’s leader in providing comprehensive learning on the modern economy’s most important professional skills. Unlike traditional universities, training programs, and other formal learning programs, we focus on five core goals…
1 – Topical. We only focus on the skills most important to today’s modern economy. If the economy changes, we change (although we predict where things are headed in advance).
2 – Comprehensive. We cover the totality of subjects needed to become job-ready.
3 – Efficient. We don’t waste time or resources on meaningless material. We tell you why you should learn each subject in the path toward proficiency.
4 – Affordable. Each learning curriculum costs under $1,000 for both education and career services. However, the idea is this is an investment that pays for itself through career enhancement.
5 – Career Enhancing. We focus on the skills and practices that get you hired into well-paying jobs. No fluff, administration, fancy degrees/certificates. Just great education and even better career services.
Nope we’re not traditional and that’s our great strength! If you want to hang a diploma on the wall or have letters next to your name, best to go elsewhere. If you want to learn Math the right way and give yourself the best chance at a great job, you’re in the right place. Welcome to Reverse Tide Learning.
Introduction… Algebra is used on a regular basis in so many business functions and forms the basis for advanced math in science and engineering. We all learn algebra around high school age but never seem to apply it as an ongoing learning method. This is a mistake.
If you’re looking to brush up on your skills or think it could help in your line of work, we have some highly rated sources to help you do this…
Introduction… Calculus is almost always a prerequisite to learning most subjects at the university (business, science, engineering, computer science). We actually disagree with the order. We think you should first learn the industry or subject and then use calculus as a tool to improve your capability. That way calculus isn’t so theoretical anymore.
Regardless of which order, calculus is extremely important in all quantitative subjects. So we’re going to go a bit deeper with multiple sources for learning. As you learn, we’d urge you to think about how you can apply it to your profession. Actively seek that answer and you’ll learn calculus in a much more useful way.
Here are the learning sources we like most…
Introduction… Linear algebra is a big subject in the computer science and data science worlds. There are many applications in the real world and thus a subject well worth learning.
We link a couple sources to make sure you get the most out of this subject…
Introduction… Geometry has applications in many jobs including the physical sciences, life sciences, architecture, manufacturing, and engineering. This subject is often taught in middle schools but can get more advanced for these applications.
So we’ll cover some good sources in our learning page as well…
One of Reverse Tide’s favorite subjects is statistics because it’s being used so frequently in exciting subjects like data science and machine learning, along with many other traditional applications. By learning math and statistics, you’re really setting yourself up nicely to start specializing in some of today’s most relevant skills (technology, analytics, science, and more). Since statistics is a big subject, we have our own learning page dedicated to the subject. So we’ll send you over there to get a bit more detail. Here’s our link…
Once you learn statistics and have this background in calculus, linear algebra, and other math subjects, it’s time to start applying it. The best place to do that is in data science & analytics. This field is perhaps the most exciting profession to be in right now. Jobs are in hot demand, salaries are very high, lucrative businesses are being started throughout this field, and exciting technological advances are happening every day. So we recommend this as a great way to apply your math learnings. Here’s the link to our comprehensive learning path…
Introduction… Sometimes math is just using numbers to help you solve real problems. It doesn’t have to have specific industry applicability but merely real life application. So we want to get out of the complexity and simplify math a little bit.
These are some sources anyone can learn from…
Introduction… While becoming an actuary will almost always require a traditional degree, it’s still a useful subject to learn online. For people in finance or risk roles of any kind, understanding this discipline is helpful supporting knowledge to take with you.
So we’ll cover it at that basic level here…
We commend you for your choice in learning Math. The applicability to so many jobs is strong and growing every day. While you can certainly become an outright mathematician, we expect most people will use their math knowledge to enhance the career path of their choosing.
