Reviews for The Purpose of Calculus
Guest chapter 1 . 1/4
Different, I can understand the pain part. I would just look at problems because of how difficult they were. I'm thankful to God that I'm not in school anymore. Really thankful.
I don't actually know to be honest what calculus really is used for.

You didn't really hand this in...did you? (The "Please don't fail me" really cracked me up)

I should also be studying for a test tomorrow like the Carolina below me. That is so trippy

And yes, this is all true.

Dear lord! I should be studying for a Calculus test coming up tomorrow right at this moment but I'm here reading this and I was nodding my head so hard at everything you wrote, that's exactly how it feels, very well put, and quite witty and humorous, great job describing a subjet that is often an unbearable pain in the ass of most students.

Oh goodness that had me all like rofl. Maths are usually my best subject courses but I'm only taking pre-calculas (note the PRE) and I already feel like killing myself or shooting my teacher. You gave a pretty good definition if I do say so myself.

Heh. That's nothing compared to multivariable calculus, in which I am studying double integrals (nasty little buggers, but nowhere near the monstrosity that was vectors). Of course, by now you've probably gone through that too. At least I know I'm not alone. SUFFER WITH ME, FOOLISH MORTALS! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. He-hehe. *snort* *creeps away, cackling madly*

Hahahaha brilliant! So hilarious and I know many people who can commiserate ;)

I love it! I'm am tking calc this year and my dad is my teacher(-.-) so I can never get away from it and all of the " extra questions" he asks me at home. Thanks for writing, thus made my day! Now on to homework

I believe that this is a successful satire of calculus. I can't go a day in that class without feeling the need to rant about how much I hate the class. When I'm done taking my 3-hour final and ride the elevator to the ground floor, I am going to maniacally celebrate my liberation from the confines of that class. Unfortunately, I'm about a week away from that glorious day.

I sympathize with your situation. This is a great piece!

This is so funny and I couldn't help but laugh while reading!
Me chapter 1 . 10/28/2011
That was pretty funny. I enjoyed calculus though so you're description is more like Analysis for me:)
aibohatsukoi chapter 1 . 5/7/2011
I understand exactly how you felt. This was brilliantly and eloquently written. My god, just thinking about calculus... my mind just throws up a blank wall and forces me to remember the good old days of pre-algebra for protection. Haha! Just by walking into that classroom my confidence and self-esteem "received a critical hit!" I think, under that pressure of a final, I would've just turned in a blank sheet soaked with my tears of failure. I don't know what the outcome was, but I'll keep both of my fingers crossed that your teacher was a decent and nice enough one to pass you. _ Thank you for this ingenious and humorous piece.

yeah, i wonder what grade you get _ it was very funny and entertaining, especially the asymptotic part

I'll have you know that I took Calculus I in college and that class was 2.5 hours long. (Granted, it was only two days a week, but still... two and a half hours!)

I was actually planning on being a math major before I took Calculus, but after that class I realized trying to get a math degree would make my head explode.

Anyways, excellent summary of the math class that makes all the previous math classes cower in fear.

Omg, this was absolutely amazing! Very cute and funny!
