this reddit has been tagged:

For the crummy mathematician. (/r/CasualMath)

This is a subreddit that is meant to be somewhere inbetween /r/math and /r/learnmath.

It is my hope that crummy mathematicians can discuss old ideas and prove old theorems and solve old puzzles here. Just because someone did it before doesn't mean we can't have fun with it, right?

This is a place where things like the Ulam Spiral and prime-rich polynomials are tolerated as reposts.

Please do use freely available resources where possible. Some crummy mathematicians aren't as fortunate as you are :)

This is our wiki and we encourage contributions of any sort, especially if they're interesting.

Post Spoilers in this format [X proves Y!](/spoiler) It will show up like this:

Think /r/math is too advanced?

Here, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

This is a subreddit for learning math, and can be seen as a sister subreddit to /r/math. Post all your math-learning resources here. Questions, no matter how basic, will be answered (to the best ability of the online subscribers).

Follow reddiquette. Be civil and polite; this is meant to be an approachable community for discussion of reason and logic.

To receive the best help, please use the following format:

[Level Discipline] Sample topic question

EX: [High School Math] Quadratic Equations
EX: [University Statistics] Probability

• Include instructor prompts (if any). What does your instructor (or the text) want you to accomplish?

• Tell us what is holding you up. Where are you in the process? Provide those who help with as much information as possible.

• Include any equations or assumptions you are using, and descriptions of any attempts you have made.

Not allowed:

• "Do this for me" posts.

• Personal information. Check your documents before posting.

• Offers or solicitations of payment in any form.

• One-sentence posts. Have some respect for people who take time to answer your question and follow the posting rules.

• Being a jerk. Jerks get banned.

Using LaTeX Type this ((remove the '\' when typing):

`[\; e^{\pi i} + 1 = 0 ;]`

you will read: [; e^{\pi i} + 1 = 0 ;] if you used the LaTeX plugins properly.

Opera: use native userjs

Chrome: try the extension
