    What is this formula in Calculus?

    I apologise if it startled you as 'bad form', but I didn't want to have to reply to people who make that silly suggestion, as I clearly stated: I'm trying to learn from the internet, without having to pay for a book. NOTE: To put it politely: I have no idea what all that meant. I understand...

    What is this formula in Calculus?

    Hey guys. I'm trying to teach my self Calculus using the internet and I've got to the point were I need to learn what Integration is. One obstacle along my way is this equation: \int_{a}^{b}f(x)dx=\sum_{i=0}^{n-1}f(xi)\Deltax What is the value of d? And what is the use of integration in...

    Difference between Pre-Calculus and Calculus?

    What is the difference between Pre-Calculus and Calculus? Is Pre a more broken down version of Calculus or is it compulsory to learn it before Calculus? What I'm saying is, what does Pre-Calculus consist of compared to Calculus?

    How much Maths does one need in Particle Physics?

    Well I'm certainly on the smart side of life for most 14 year olds. ;) Thanks. I think I'll subscribe to the New Scientist magazine. EDIT: I've actually started learning Calculus and I've got the hang of functions. After all, I'm an x-computer programmer(3 years of exp.).

    Calculus: Derivative

    Would another form of 6x-7 be [PLAIN]http://www.myalgebra.com/math_image.aspx?p=3hxSMB02ESMB032SMB02eSMB03-21hx-18x-105?p=170?p=22? [Broken] That number is the result myalgebra.com calculated.

    Calculus: Derivative

    1) f(x)=3x2-7x+5 2) \frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h} What is the value of equation 2? NOTE: I'm new to Calculus. I'm trying to self teach by using the internet. Thanks in advance. ;)
