DD is leaving home soon & I will have 'free-time' - I know not what this is wink

I did my OU degree while juggling a home, a FT job & a time intensive DD and I can't afford to sy=tudy any more OU formally

Am I right that there used to be a open bit you could just go & study? That was free?

If so could I go back and study some Maths stuff (not really sure what) I'd probably need some remedial stuff as apart from the odd simultaneous equation or spreadsheet I have done no maths for decades

Any ideas where I should start?

Not sure about OU but have you looked at Coursera.org?

I did my maths degree with the OU. It was quite a fe years ago, now, but I really enjoyed it.

I love number theory. It's like magic!

But it's decades ago that I did anything properly 'maths' Coursera looks good I'll have a play

Thanks for not laughing
