 I think there is since people with AS are less likely to succumb to social/parental pressures and just blatantly believe what ever their friends/family believe.

 Don't use the internet. Estimate the value of these sums: a) 1+2+3+4+... b)1^2+2^2+3^2+... The solution involves the Riemann zeta function but tell me what you think. Neither series converges. If a series converges then its n-th term approaches 0 as n goes to infinity. Clearly this does not happen ...

 You can also calculate instantaneous rates of change, cannot be obtained by pre-calculus methods. Not true. Remember, if you were to take the value of two functions and divide them out by a limit approaching zero, you can get the same result without differentiation. This is first principles, often ...

 Big fan of base 12. It, and the related 60, come from Sumerian times where it was actually in use. Unfortunately they didn't have zeros and had some notation problems. I'm not actually sure where the base 10 got started, later - was it Arabic culture? It survives today mainly in divisions of circle...

 Let me explain. Most humans use base 10 to count, probably for primitive reasons. However, our lives seem to be based around the number 12 more than the number 10. Our clock is based on the number 12. 12 is more composite than 10 so it makes multiplication and division by certain numbers more easy. ...

 It's been awhile since I have been in school, but I have found out in recent years that maybe I would have had a better career if I was not so afraid of the math when I was younger. I had special education when I was a tween and not much math. I later had algebra at the public high school but I dec...

 Its only hard if you don't grasp algebra, math is a cumulative and is kinda like levelling up in an RPG game. You can't be level 20 without having understood level 19. If you don't understand any prior level of mathematics before it, it will probably seem harder than it is. Also math difficulty is ...

 If you're actually twelve, I really envy you. I wish I'd had a chance to learn so many things so young. It'd probably have made many peers despise and bully me even more, but they did it enough already so the difference would have been hardly noticeable :twisted: When I didn't audit university math...

 Is it not really hard. I find it extremely fascinating. It fills in the gap made by all the mathematics done in school (traditionally) before that. In the standard algebra and geometry course one usually is taught how to compute the area, perimeter, surface area etc. of simple shapes such as circles...

 But social anxiety, depression and PTSD can all go away. Autism is incurable. Trying your entire life to cure something that is not curable seems like a pointless exercise.

 220 and 284 are amicable numbers, so there factors add up to each other. 220 and 284 are often associated with relationships and love. The factors of 220 and 284 add up of each other. Perfect numbers are numbers whose factors add up to itself (so perfect numbers are amicable to themselves). Narcissi...

 Studies suggest that people with an autism spectrum condition are more likely to have synesthesia (when you associate one sense with another one). I do associate some senses with other senses. Do you do this?
