1. Women blink twice as often as men.
2. Increased blinking is a non-verbal sign that someone is lying.
3. Therefore, women lie more often than men!

But we all knew that already Tongue

I used to have an awesome math brain, and then it atrophied  Cry
I fear that by teaching only high school math I will eventually lose all of my higher math skills that I developed in college.
Sad

Use it or lose it!

So true...I used to do math when I get bored or sleepy to wake me up.  And when I was presented with a really hard problem (a solve for x problem), one day I spent 7 hours until I solved for that x.  Me and a friend used to challenge each other with problems (never paid attention to our FST/PDM classes in high school) to kill the boredom, while everyone else was playing games in their TI-83.  And college was the best.  I was forced to retake Calculus I and II even though I got a 5 on my AP.  Best times.  My friend and I would come to class and sleep and then on random days, we would get exams and quizes when we didn't even know we had exams and quizzes, and aced them.  I spent time trying to define infinity on my own, but I lost that work...and it's somewhere in the basement back in our NJ home.

Ah, yes...those were good geeky times.  My sister (who like I was is a math geek) decided to go back to math and took Calc III, and now she realizes how much she loves it, and is deciding to change her minor to a Math one.  Smart girl, wish I did the same.

You're in the company of fellow geeks here Wink I sometimes frequent a site where, if someone posts something even moderately long, they will include cliffs for what they're saying, and 50% or more of the forum won't bother reading anything in the thread if there aren't cliffs, they'll just post and say that they didn't read the OP. I could just imagine some of the cliffs you'd see on this site...

What exactly does Calc III teach?  Is it multivariate calculus?  We don't tend to name things up here in terms of I, II, and III.

You are correct.  In the US, Calc III is usually Multivariate Calculus with introductions to partial derivatives, Gradients and other fun stuff.   Grin

Calc IV is Ordinary Differential Equations.  Partial Differential Equations are reserved for Senior level / Grad level.

I'm not sure if this correlates, but my parents never read to me when I was young, and I ended up being horrible in Literature classes.  But they did, and I kid you not, create math problems for me during summer breaks.

My dad always told me, "It's a shame that an Egyptian would get a 99 on a math test.  That is failure in our eyes!"

And if there's extra credit, then any point below the max score would be failure.

Does this have something to do with the notion that Egyptians are the forefathers of astronomy and mathematics, hearken back to the old great schools of Alexandria?

Yes...Egyptians have that type of pride that we should be the smartest people in math so we don't let our ancestors down, "the ancestors whose genius built the Pyramids," and stuff like that.

In Egypt, it used to be that the two best professions and the hardest schools to get in to were those of medicine and engineering.

Yes Virginia, it does snow in Egypt, especially in the Sinai.
It also snows in Jerusalem.

Or, I was merely parodying "old men's tales."  You know - how hard it was "back in my day."  Notice how I said "no water" and then said "in the snow?"

No problem.  It was a bit of a stretch on my part.

There's nothing like Reverse Polish Notation.  How foolish for HP to discontinue their calculators.

Now RPN is available as an iPhone app.  Progress....

Ummm...you can still get HP RNP Calculators....

Yeah, I have seen the HP 50g at local stores with SD card capability.  I haven't seen the HP 33s around.

A friend in college also had the HP 48GX.  I liked that calculator even though it cost $300 in the early 1990s.

I have an HP48gx programme for my Windows Mobile phone, no equivalent iPhone version?

Here?

There you go, figures it's a German site, they seem to be the ones to keep the ROM's up to date. Found an app for the Android operating system as well and it's much more stable than my one...great to have a linux based operating system. Now if we can just root the damn thing and port a GNU compiler (I know, not trivial task with the chip architecture...but the architecture seems to be here to stay, so it's time to get started, at least with gcc)

Oh how I dread studying for my Algebra final!

(Yes, I know there are many on this thread that find Algebra trivial and juvenile, but this poor brain struggles with it.)

1+2x+3x^2+4x^3+...+nx^(n-1)

Sum from i=1 to n of n*x^(n-1)?

Guess it would be the derivative of the Sum from i=1 to n of C + x^n?

Let's derive the the equation for the volume of a sphere using triple integration. I know this is baby math but it used to be one of my math professor's test to determine whether or not he was sober enough to drive. LOL.

Mathematics is hardly random; but when it is - oh, boy.

That's an easy one, the volume of a sphere is zero, no integration needed Wink
