yeah, i wonder what grade you get _ it was very funny and entertaining, especially the asymptotic part
Ben Tramsami chapter 1 . 3/5/2011
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.

Oh my gosh! Let me start out with saying that I am a math major in college right now (just starting out). Everything you said was absolutely right. I loved your humorous outlook on all of the ridiculous hoops that Calc teachers make their students go through. Love it, love it, love it!

Hehehee this made me laugh, i'm doing a maths degree! lucky mee right! love how you described integration by substitution and the little bit on the chain rule :D

Excellent ! I can understand your pain, I feel the same way XD

i'm currently taking calculus for my senior high school year, and i find that i totally agree with what you're saying. i personally do NOT favor math 5, but i'm trying to overcome it so i can actually graduate.

nice to know i'm not alone in the world :)

The summary says it all. If you've ever taken Calculus, you'll find this one-shot to be quite the amusing one. It will make you laugh. :)

'Calculus is a very effective form of anesthesia.'

Imagine a 90 minute course.

Yes, very, very, very painful. Seriously. Calculus was the worst. Ever. Class. It made me hate math like never before. And considering I've never hated math...that said something about the course.

Yeah, u-substitution? The steps you described? Exactly what I felt. Exactly.

I'd take my Calc book. Look at it. Feel a headache coming on. And ignore it. A very simple, four step process.

Funny piece. I sympathize with your pain. I need to send this to other fellow sufferers
Lady Dan chapter 1 . 5/7/2010
Hahahaha! I had myself a long, hard, good laugh at this! It's so true... Yet, simultaneously sad in its trueness... :/

Actually, as I type this, I really should be studying for the Calc 4 final... Thanks for aiding in my procrastination! \o/
jules chapter 1 . 2/25/2010
honey if you think a 50 minute calc class is bad, just imagine taking an 85 minute calc class. oh joy an extra 35 minutes to cram net area and integration problems down my poor throat.

Lol... Tell me you didn't fail.
