Thanks for the heads-up, I forgot you could do latex in PF. Also, you're not the first person to say that the applications should get more interesting. I guess I'll just wait and see.
Here's what I got:
"A particle is moving along the x-axis so that its position at t ≥ 0 is given by s(t) = (t)In(3t). Find the acceleration of the particle when the velocity is first zero."
velocity = s'(t)
s'(t) = ln(3t) + 1
ln(3t) + 1 = 0
t = 1/3e
acceleration = s''(t)
s''(t) = 1/t...
Just wanted to say thank you for all of the answers everyone gave, it was all really helpful. It took me so long to respond because of school. After some long thought, I realized that I'm just not really a fan of physics - in the way it's presented in my class. I'm going to take the time to...
Yes, I can do the calculations, and I them all incredibly repetitive and dull - which judging from these answers may be more a characteristic of my class, rather than of calculus itself. Over the summer, I may just restudy it by myself to get a better perspective. Thanks for answering, this was...
@Mark44 It's an AP class, so if I pass the exam, I'll get college credit for calc 1 and 2 - if that's what you mean.
@FactChecker
The more I think about it, the more I'm pretty sure I just don't like calculation. I find it tedious and I stop paying attention after awhile. That's why I'm...
I am currently a junior in high school and recently, my guidance counselor has been asking me a lot of questions about what I want to major in. Within the last 6-8 months, I have been leaning heavily towards a math major. That was until I started my calc class this year...
I'm in AP Calc BC...
I do have a robotics competition coming up at a local college. Maybe it's worth talking to some people about opportunities there. Also, I could apply for a CC class even before finishing out the school year?
Yes, the math tutor at my school checks them. He studied math in college, but not very extensively, which is why it's difficult to ask him more abstract questions. So far, all of my proofs have been correct.
I have talked to some people about taking math classes at a college, but I go to a cyber school. The relationships with teachers are a little impersonal, so it's sometimes difficult to prove my abilities beyond grades. For example, I opened up to the regular calculus teacher about my issue and...
High school student here...
Over the past year or so, I've developed an intense interest in mathematics. I work problems every day and I am constantly working to grow my knowledge.
As a junior, I am currently in AP calculus and will most likely be eligible for Calc 3 my senior year. I'm...
