    I like calculus too! In fact, I like math in general. I like it so much that I'm on the math team!

    So far I love Pre-Calc, I'm taking Calculus and Statistics and as long as the current teacher leaves, I'll probably love Calc too. Silvercord, next year you wanna do my homework? By that I mean you're going to do it..or else!!
    Give me a bad reputation!!!

    I have been reading up on doing calculus IN 3D USING PARAMETRIC EQUATIONS... that's totally sweet. What I mean is coming up with ridiculously complex (but neat looking) equations for x,y, and z of t and then finding their a) volumes and b) surfaces areas of revolution, as well as the lengths of curves (i.e in the back of the book it proves how to find the length of a cork screw, i.e like the railgun in quake2).

    this stuff is totally sweet

    I like Calculus but I hate my Calculus teacher with a passion. If you ever go to BYU, take Calculus from any other teacher than Dr. Skarda. Just a tip for anyone who ends up going there.

    I share DavidP's opinion, calc1 was OK but the prof sucked...calc2 was way easier than 1 and my prof was cool...calc 3 was the easiest and the coolest....yey for number theory next sem! .....

    Lost my post

    Here is a quick review of my lost post:

    Calculus III: [Multivariable Calculus]

    Normal topics of coverage:

    *Analytic geometry: vector algebra stuff
    *Partial derivatives
    *Multiple integrals
    *Vector calculus: Green's theorem, Stoke's theoerm, surface integrals, divergence.

    It really depends on what you learned in Calc I & II. Normally, the core stuff is the same though.

    Good luck with number theory buddy, it's a beast.

    number theory is great. so amazing that you can discover all sorts of complex patterns and theories from something as "simple" as numbers. and yes, calculus rocks.

    I too am loving every bit of calculus, but do to my academic advisor I got screwed out of being able to take Calc II next semester, so I am going to have to wait for a semester before I can take it(I really wanted to bash his skull in, because he would not unlock me for registration even after I had told him I know exactly what I need/want to do, and do not need his help in course selection). I am planning on teaching my self calc II over the summer pretty much.

    I'm taking as much calculus as I can...but I haven't really learned any yet.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    Calc is awesome, I just took the calculus AB AP test, and I'm pretty sure I got a 4 or a 5...oh wait I'm not supposed to talk about that lol

    Next semester for my senior high year, I get to take Calc II!!!! YEEEAHHHH!!!!

    Oh and btw, I keep getting the wrong answer for the integral of (x)(e^2x)

    Can anyone show me how to do that one?
