Re: Is Geometry the first Inspirational Math class?

On the contrary, I think geometry is a repugnant subject. I was first interested in mathematics when I learned of a girl who kept on skipping grade in my school. THat makes me feel stupid  why can a little girl be smarter than be? So I started using the textbooks from the public library and did, in 8th grade, got ahead so I didn't have to learn for the entire year. I taught myself calculus (the shortcut calculus and the chain rule only :)). Yet, I didn't take summer school so I can't skip out of 8th and 9th math. THey are easy! Still, geometry did not interest me. Reason is, they require creativity, well partly, by that the connection is not easily seen, but you can still prove it by triangles. It would be better if instead we could look at geometry of the shapes in one, unified theory and as groups. Well, this is ironically a good thing because I can be the one to unify it and many theorems of geometry can come as consequences. So far, I only got  nothing.
