Diffeq...Bad idea?

So because it took way too long for my calculus bc score to reach my school and fill the prerequisites as calc 1 and 2, I was unable to enroll in calculus 3 before it filled up. However, diffeq was still open, and for whatever reason only has the first two semesters of calculus as a prerequisite. So...

Re: Calculus Applications Book

This may sound like the most ridiculous idea ever, but check out Calculus I and Calculus II for Dummies. I don't know if this is the case for you, but I found that sometimes my textbook skips way too many steps in some of its examples,* often leaving raised eyebrows and no better understanding of th...

Re: Newspeak: Whatever happened to the Conservatives?

The way you describe today's "conservatives" suggests that they are reactionaries. Although the right wing aggressively advocates reform, it is important to note that it aggressively advocates reforming governments to something they used to be, rather than to something. Although these refo...

That's true. However, it's an old topic (latest post was 3 months ago) and the poll on it has been closed.

Re: SAT Scores (because somebody had to do it)

Wotthehell? It was only two components when I took it -- reading/writing and math/whatever. Max possible score was 1600 (which I didn't get). Yeah it was recently changed. I can't think of a way to incorporate people who took it before it was out of 2400 as well as those who took it after the writi...

SAT Scores (because somebody had to do it)

I saw the ACT thread and thought it only right to put up a matching SAT thread :P Now all those of you on the coast who didn't take the ACT (or those who took both and just like their SAT scores better) can have your claim to fame. I got: 2320 total 800 Reading 800 Writing 720 Math Odd that I did so...

Re: Storing Data on a ti-84

I wasn't quite sure if this should go in the hardware forum or not, but here goes: I'm wondering if its possible to store user-defined data on a ti-84 with Z80 assembly. If this is possible, how would it be done? (a quick example of this would be a high score.) Additionally, any idea where the calc...

Re: Do natural rights exist?

The problem with the evolutionary interpretation is that it only provides us with a nice narrative for the origin of rights (and I do think it's a nice narrative). It doesn't have any predictive power, and it doesn't help us make real decisions on how to live our life. But it does have predictive p...

Re: Do natural rights exist?

@Guenther: There is a process to discovering what natural rights are. Whether its a Kantian "aufklarung" or something postmodern is up for debate, but the process of finding natural rights is very important--you don't simply say "I have a right to X". I could go more into some o...

Re: integrating sin(x^-1)

It is a rather odd function (pun not intended). Even though its only discontinuity is at x=0, it appears to not be integrable along any of its domain. Although, I refuse to believe that. There has to be some way to mathematically model the area enclosed by it.

Re: Limits with square roots

Okay I've got it now. \lim_{x\to\infty} \frac{(9x-3)^{1/2}}{(x+4)^{1/2}} Can be written as \lim_{x\to\infty} (\frac{9x-3}{x+4})^{1/2} Therefore ln[\lim_{x\to\infty} \frac{(9x-3)^{1/2}}{(x+4)^{1/2}}] = (1/2)\lim_{x\to\infty} ln[\frac{9x-3}{x+4}] = (...

Re: Limits with square roots

My mistake for making up terminology that doesn't actually exist. What I meant was how do i find a way to solve the limit without using the definition that lim f(x)/g(x) x->infinity = lim h(x)/k(x) x->infinity for h(x) is the highest degree term of f and k(x) is the highest degree term of g

Limits with square roots

Is there a way to prove that

Code: Select all

lim sqrt(9x-3)/sqrt(x+4) = 3
x->infinity

Re: integrating sin(x^-1)

I think you're confusing "integrable" with "antidifferentiable" Any function with a bounded area is "integrable" in the sense that you can find this area, whether it be analytic methods or approximation methods, such as Simpson's rule or Trapezoid rule. However, not all...
