    James Stewart's Calculus (Fourth Edition)

    Can anyone tell me how James Stewart's Calculus (Fourth Edition) is divided into Calculus 1, 2, and 3 (which chapters belong to each subject)? I've heard that it contains all three but I cannot see any clear division. Also, where does multivariable Calculus fit-is it part of 1, 2, or 3, or is...

    QBasic questions

    I'm in high school (also correction: she). It's not a huge school, so there is not much selection with computer langauges. Also, I rechecked and the local college also offers some classes in Perl, Linux, and others. However I'm surprised that there was such a selection at ComputerGeek's school...

    QBasic questions

    Well, at my school they only teach QBasic, Visual Baisc, and C++. At the local college I might take some classes, but I think they only offer C++ and Java. Any others I would need to teach myself (if I took up a seperate computer language it would just give me another excuse not to do school...

    QBasic questions

    Thank you very much, my questiosn were all answered between this post and my class, except for the question about the line input prompt. Is that the same as input? If not, what is the difference? Thank you for the assistance. P.S. Whether or not QBasic is the best it is generally seen as the...

    QBasic questions

    There are a few things that I can't remember learning in my Computer Programming class, and I haven't been able to find the answers. Can anyone tell me how to: -round a number to a certain number of decimal places? -use dates (month day, year) as response to input as a single variable...

    GPA Weighting at UF and FSU

    Thank you, I hope so, it would be impossible for me to get a 3.73 or a 3.9 at this point. I know that they're weighted in some way because they show the 50% ranges on their website which exceed 4.0. Could anyone give me an idea of the average GPA of the students of either school before their...

    GPA Weighting at UF and FSU

    I was reading about these colleges and was surprised to see that their average GPAs are in the same area as the admittants to Ivy league schools. The average GPAs are around 3.73 and 3.9. My question is how much are they weighted? Are the GPAs actually that high or are they just really weighted...

    Areas of mathematics that could be self-taught

    Wow, that's great. Thank you. I've actually recieved the book and it's similar to the precalculus book that we use and so far it's been a really great book (clear, understandable,etc.). :biggrin:

    Areas of mathematics that could be self-taught

    I was intending to take BC but I'm confused now because the teacher said something about AB material on the exam and that you would need to take AB first, and AB is paired with Math Analysis (which I've heard is pretty much just an extension to make the class two hours long) and I don't...

    Areas of mathematics that could be self-taught

    I was considering taking AP Statistics, but eventually decided not to because supposedly a majority of the people that do well have taken regular Statistics first. It's really easy though so far, and my teacher, who also teaches AP, said that the only difference was the pacing of the class. I...

    Areas of mathematics that could be self-taught

    That's a good point, I've only taken Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, and am currently in Precalculus and Probability and Statistics, and I've learned only some of the basic ideas of Calculus through both my Precalculus and Physics classes and some reading I've done. Does Calculus play an important role...

    Areas of mathematics that could be self-taught

    Thanks, I forgot to mention that I'm also currently taking Probability and Statistics. I was thinking about Taking AP Statistics next year, but depending on how I do I might just use a study guide and see how well I can do on the exam. Thank you. :smile:

    Your thoughts about these books?

    Well, I've read The Elegant Universe and I loved it, I don't know if it's too late seeing as the last post was a few months ago, but for what it's worth I think it depends on what your interests are in physics. The Elegant Universe is about string theory and is written for the general reader but...

    Areas of mathematics that could be self-taught

    I'm currently taking Precalculus in school, and I've been trying to get ahead by teaching myself Calculus, however I would also be interested in learning about other areas of mathematics (especially those which also relate to physics). Does anyone know of a specific division of mathematics that...

    Florida Institute of Technology

    As far as tuition goes I think I would apply for finiancial aid and would like to work on campus, and also Florida has a "Bright Futures" scholarship that grants around up to $10,000 per year if you qualify.

    Florida Institute of Technology

    I've always been a little confused about that. It is said that they prefer to see good grades in more advanced classes however weighted GPA is not used because of the different weighting techniques form one school to another. In general they look at the unweighted GPA, and reweight it based on...

    Florida Institute of Technology

    In my college search I've noticed that I've picked ideal reaches and not many good matches or safeties. My GPA is 3.0-unweighted (going up), my rank is currently in the top 15%. I haven't yet taken the SAT but feel confident that I can do better than the average score at the Florida Institute of...

    I bought a new floppy drive and it turned out that the old one must have been the problem because everything works great now. Thank you. :biggrin:

    Free QBasic Download?

    Thanks! You're right, ALT-ENTER did fix the window problem. The program does have the .bas extension, but the floppy drive that I'm using is kind of old, so it's possible that that's the problem. Thank you very much. :smile:

    I've been using QBasic (Quick Basic) in school and wanted to go over it on the weekends, but I can't find a download anywhere that works (I downloaded one version but the screen was too small, and it didn't seem to be able to retrieve information from the floppy disk, if anyone knows any other...
