    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?

    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.

    What is this formula in Calculus?

    But I thought \int was the integration operator? Or do they mean the same thing?

    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. ;)

    How much Maths does one need in Particle Physics?

    GCSE=new version of O-level(14-16) A-level=College/6th Form(16-18) ...And then you do degrees at University.

    How much Maths does one need in Particle Physics?

    Calculus is not available until you reach A-level/University, I think. I do not possess access to learning Calculus at school, yet.

    How much Maths does one need in Particle Physics?

    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. :)

    How much Maths does one need in Particle Physics?

    I mean bar charts and median etc. I love linear algebra. ;) No, I have not heard of this 'limits'.

    How much Maths does one need in Particle Physics?

    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...

    Square Root of a Quantity of X

    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.
