15 posts in this topic

It's fuckin crazy...trig ID's derivatives of trig functions, composition/decomposition of functions. chain rules, quotient rules, all kinds of wicked rules. Its absosloutely crazy how these figured this shit out like 3-500 years ago with nothing, just paper and protractors and shit.

Fuck math! :thumbsdown:

You're more than likely never going to use any of it for the rest of your life unless you specifically go into some profession where you do. I never took a math class past basic algebra. :tongue:

Why do those high school movies always have to be about "inner city kids?" What about teaching country kids? :tongue:

Yeah, IDK if many inner city kids are too interested in calculus. I can't Latin Kings and LMG's and such too interested in the idea of calculus when they make stacks of cash running the streets. But either way, I suppose its an alright movie idea.

There's always a point where the teacher alludes to the child's gang life through math.

"So, think of this variable as the number of hoes, and this one as the number homies. Therefore, f(x)=mx+b is the function for drawing a straight hoe on a grid."

So today my teacher gave us this hand out with 3 problems on it, and told us he would do one, so we chose { f(x) = SqrRt|x| * e ^x^2 } And it took my teacher an hour and a half to finish it...We had to find f', f'' and all the extrema, local and absolute, graph it, and find all asymptotes and well shit...It took forever and was hard as hell...
