Right. So here's the deal.


Have you already taken Calculus ?


How'd you do ? How do you feel about the subject?


Was it worth it (i.e, is it useful in life) ?


&& BONUS QUESTION: Can you help Sakii with her homework sometimes ? :33

No I have not. If I can manage it I never will. Not that I have anything against it- it sounds fascinating, I just don't know what I would DO with it. And my basic algebra class is already nigh destroying my life. I see no point in stressing myself out for something I don't really really enjoy.

But if you love math, I would say calculus is the way to go.

I've only taken pre-calc but from what I can tell the whole thing is easy. So long as I know my functions and rules I'm fine.

... I didn't get that far in High School.

And even if I did I would have avoided Calculus like the plague. c__c I hate math. Not to say I couldn't do it, I JUST HATE THE NUMBERS. HATE. HATE. HAAAATE.

I was all about the English. D:

I took Calc 1 and 2...Passed Calc 1 but failed 2.

If you're at Calc 1 level, I may be able to teach you, but I'd have to dig up my old calc books, as I am very, very rusty.

Yes.
Well. At times, it felt like hell.
So far, so good, but time will tell.
Catch me first, and I may well.

Oh, and Saku? If you're gonna go into engineering, physics, or some similarly math-heavy field, then yes, it is useful.


Otherwise it's a waste of time.

I agree with Ric.

I stopped at Adv. Algebra simply because I figured an Actor or Psychologist wasn't going to need to know much math past that.

I've done both... passed calc 1. Failed the calc 2 final but still managed to pass the course... I think I understand it better now, after applying calc in a couple of classes, but I'm not in a math heavy degree, so Iunno!

Some of the biology classes uses calc too... stuff like epidemiology, and tracking population changes... also if you were thinking of going into atmospheric/oceanic sciences. Those bio/life sciences/natural science fields were modelling is important, since nothing's linear in nature... oh joy.

I'm in grade eleven and pre-cal.

Pretty fine, except for Sinusoidal graphs. I can solve it without graphing, why do you want me to make a graph?
