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:

Doesn't ANYONE know enough Calculus to tutor someone? Why not ?

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.

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
Moderate to aggressive.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
Genre You DON'T Like
I'll try just about anything. I'm not overly into RPs where the prime focus is romance. I'm not too hyped on fan based anime rp either.
#15
I use a lot of math at work, mostly fractions and geometry though.

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?
 
Favorite Genres
Magical, Fantasy, Supernatural, Sci Fi, Steam Punk, Noir, HORROR, and I'm willing to try Romance.
