Solve:

[tex]\int{e^{x^2}} dx[/tex]

[tex]\int{sin (x^2) dx[/tex]

[tex]\int{e^{x^2}} dx[/tex]

[tex]\int{sin (x^2) dx[/tex]

[tex]\int x\cosh^{-1} x dx[/tex]

I'll look around at a few of the sites my teachers gave me, what areas do you struggle with?

now I am in Linear Algebra (Finally...though that is not nearly as embarrassing as forgetting to take freshman statistics [I am a senior and have 2 classes left in upper level for my major to be complete] :-), that is sure to be fun, having to sit through stupid questions from people who have had no interest in math since...for ever!!)

so basically if I want to get out of college with a semblance of the skills that I had in calc when I was in the classes (and I will need it since I am going to teach it to smart high schoolers eventually) I have to hit my self with a problem or two a day to keep on the ball.

That integral seems like it should be done by parts--- set u = x and dv = cosh x, which is = 0.5*(e^x + e^-x). Too lazy to solve it out though!

Sorry no, you've read the integrand wrong, it should be x multiplied by inverse cosh of x.Theelectricchild said:

I thought about doing that last semester but never looked into it. But lets not say "learn" since the last thing a student wants is a teacher who does not know the subject :-)HallsofIvy said:Become a tutor. The best way to learn anything is to teach it.

It seems the book is hard to find, too. It isn't available at Amazon.fourier jr said:

Mathwonk, what do you think about James Stewart's Calculus books?

I know you didn't ask me, but I'll tell you this anyway. I haven't heard very many good things about it, however, it is one of the books my calculus professor had recommended we get one if we want a book of that sort.Cyclovenom said:Mathwonk, what do you think about James Stewart's Calculus books?

Thanks, Personally, I like James Stewarts Examples and it has a intermediate rigoruous calculus [At least 4th Edition], I know because i got another 3 books of Calculus:

1) Advanced Calculus by Wilfred Kaplan [9th Edition] (It's pretty complete as far as i've seen).

2) Elements of the differential and integral calculus by William Anthony Granville [Revised Edition] (It covers a lot of stuff and has very nice problems for the math majors, except it doesn't cover linear algebra)

3) University Calculus by Howard E. Taylor and Thomas L. Wade (I didn't bother to check it much, it seems nice, but it's just full of theorems, and exercises, it bores me to death... i mostly use it to check theorems and such...)

Althought it looks like Courant seems to be the best book to learn from... Maybe i will consider buying it.
