My favorite result in mathematics is the Basel Sum.
one has to be a bit careful about replacing "rigor" with "intuition" (although intuition is often useful for thinking about things we think *may* be true). let me give a simple example:Anything that is elementary, lol. No, I like anything that you can change and have your own explanation to it. That it might be less rigorous in a text book I have in school. Otherwise I like anything from the algebraic field and mathematical finances. I find myself becoming more engrossed in algebra's and mathematical finances due to a large amount of the courses being available at a local community college. I have Business Calculus and Business Statistics. I think the best way at my level to experience something in mathematics before college is to have an application. I also am on the track for an accounting/clerical job and looking into a stock broker license so I can trade stocks for family members.
