I would like to take a few minutes out of my evening to thank everyone here in the calculus forums.

At the beginning of this past June I enrolled myself in grade 13 calculus through correspondence (I'm in Ontario Canada where we had grade 13).

My story: I dropped out of high school over really stupid reasons (I was getting high everyday, hated everyone including my teachers). I must admit all throughout high school I did pretty poorly. I failed multiple math classes between grades 9 and 12. When I dropped out I only needed TWO credits (!)

Well, I had no idea what calculus was and hadn't attempted this course before. I came to these forums pretty green and can recall asking really stupid questions (In the first couple chapters I asked if I could convert everything so I could use the product rule instead of the quotient rule hehe).

I never had an actual teacher to ask questions from so I came here and asked a few. Lucky for me, you great people would never give me the answer outright--you would challenge me and point me in the right direction but never do my work.

Well last week I wrote my exam for the course (and it was on my birthday too). I just got the letter today and I scored 97% for the course:surprised. I'm in my third year in a community college diploma and my GPA is 4.0 but would you believe this math mark is the most important to me of anything. To do what teachers said I couldn't, to prove those who called me a dropout etc :tongue:

I know this might not be suitable for this forum as it isn't a math question but I'd still like to convey my thanks for those who hang around here and help steer us young'uns without any compensation

Thanks!
