>>53548205 What level of math would you have to progress to to be considered "elite"? Calc 2? What about being an above average mathematician? What about an average? What about below average? I think the average in the US at least is an 8th grade math level. So despite being a fuck up in calculus (I will retake it and pass this time) I have progressed all the way through algebra and a couple other math classes.

Cal 3 is easy. Diff is a bitch. All I have to take is diff for that sweet, sweet math minor, and I'm dreading it. I was one of those kids who could learn any subject effortlessly except math, so I actually find learning math and doing well in it more rewarding than most courses.

>>53548451 “elite” on the chans would be last two years of PhD math. above average in normie is differential equations average is calc 1 below average is trigonometry

>>53549072 Not only that, since I got a D in calc 2 when the required grade was a C, I was able to substitute calc 3 for the calc 2 requirement >>53549190 Yes, idk how you could do those courses without a calculator

>>53549676 Most of those surveyed are probably middle-aged white ppl (45+) along with blacks and mexicans lowering the average. I would say any white person below 30 yrs old and above 18 today would be calc 1 educated with some broccoli haired zoomer mexicans and wiggers lowering the average to trigonometry or 8th grade level. The average college grad (22) is at calc 1 level.

My math perception of 4chan is from lurking /sci/ and some of them (particularly the olders one) are smart. I’ve seen them do a lot of topology geometry, complex analysis, stochastic math, and graph theory. Personally, I’ve only gone up to calc 3 college course cuz that’s what my major allowed. /g/ is another board that I’ve noticed with high math knowledge.

>>53548082 >tfw when made As in cal 1, 2 , 3, Diff. Eq., and linear algebra >tfw still only make $66k I was told being good at math was valuable. I was lied to.

>>53550045 4chan still retains a numerous amount of 160 15sd and higher individuals even though posting quality across the board has been impacted severely over the years. Regardless of whether IQ is relevant or not to intelligence, all you need to do to find highly intelligent individuals for sure is gatekeep threads with many of the topics you just listed. It’s a great way to filter the political imbeciles and shills of the American politica system of the “left” and “right”, as well as blocking halfwits from contributing drivel in any real capacity. There used to be thread gate keeping on /biz/ that required solving equations to participate, around 2015.

>>53549553 Kek this makes me an elite and I'm a fucking retard t. BS in math, did research, got bored of academia and now just work full time on building compilers for zkSnarks
