## Things to Learn

## One textbook’s worth or more

## Half a textbook’s worth, or the full documentation

## A couple of chapters of a textbook, passing familiarity

There’s an increasing number of things I feel I need to know but don’t. This is a list of some of them.

It’s easier to pick out things that are sort of math-y or technical, though there are definitely lots of other things I want to be better at.

These are arranged by how much I feel like I ought to know them. I’ve learned a little bit about most of these, but I need to learn a lot more.

Much of this could be folded into “About the same math that would be known by the average undergraduate math senior.”
