Can you figure out maths without having to learn it first?

    Most people need years of guidance and/or study before they get to the level where they can figure out some “new” mathematics. For example Bernoulli and Euler developed results that were new in their time; but then they were both much above average. 

    A reasonably bright person can often be happy working on their own with basics like arithmetic, but as they advance it is a great time saver to be taught about the discoveries that have been found over the years.

    Of course. The first persons to "figure out math" didn't have anybody to teach them. They had to teach themselves. You can do it, too, but you'd better expect to spend a lifetime doing it.

    People often have the experience of being able to figure out some math methods that have not been taught to them.  The usual outcome is that if you figure out some mathematical technique for yourself, you will later learn that OTHER people figured this stuff out many centuries ago.  But you can still be happy with having seen these things for yourself.

    You can figure out and learn Mathematics with lots of effort and dedication.

    Gladly, there are no shortcuts...as that would de-value the importance and beauty of the subject.

    "figuring it out" is learning.
