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...
Well my order is somewhat logical: function, derivative, integral...and now path integral.
Would you mind actually giving me a better definition of derivative than Wikipedia and an example please. My knowledge of it seems somewhat un-satisfied.
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...
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?
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.).
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.
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. ;)
A well spoken post. ;)
As soon as I have 'remembered' all of my previous Mathematical education(i.e.revised it), then I shall look into Calculus and maybe even start learning it. :)
Thank you. Finally someone who realises that things in America have different naming conventions as of that in the UK. I know how to do Trigonometry and I enjoy 'problem solving', I just dislike graphs very much as I have never really found a use for them besides the obvious uses. I shall pursue...
How does one calculate the square root of a quantity of x e.g. \sqrt{25x}?
Also could you equate 5x^{2} to 25x?
Just a thew random queries going around my head.
NOTE: I'm 14.
