Misfit Math

Why Am I Such A Misfit?

Welcome to Misfit Math - the landing place for topics that are so optional, they aren't even explicity included in regular curriculums. Sure, you'll get a very rare teacher who includes one once in a while, but it's certainly hard to convince someone that learning how to compute square roots by hand is a valuable skill, or that knowing $10^{100}$ is called a googol is useful to anyone beside a Jeopardy contestant (pronounced like the search engine - yes that's where they got their name from).

Below you will find several categories of subjects, each full of misfit math topics. Sometimes they are helpful, sometimes they are practically useless, and sometimes they are just plain fun.
