I like the poem, maths, but I noticed that eye and symmetry don't rhyme...

I think calculus sounds fun! A lot of the stuff we do in my math class is just plugging things into formulas we learned two years ago. I'm ready to learn something new.
Bwahahaa.
I want to get through AP Calculus III/IV before graduating highschool. WOOH! That class will be AWESOME!

Hey, Ricky, is multivariable calculus hard?

If you have a very good understanding of derivatives, integration (especially finding the limits of integration), and understanding how to apply these, then no.

The only other thing to consider are converging and diverging series, but for those, all you have to do is memorize a few different tests to see which is which.

Come on think. We're all good at something. I'm good at scaring people away and saying dumb stuff.

I read a book on algebra 1, then on 2, then trig, now almost done calculus, in a little over a year. (cause I don't have other subjects to worry about) I'd say all that is pretty unecessary. Though it doesn't hurt.

Hey, Ricky, is multivariable calculus hard? Btw that series of complaints was hilarious!

So you're saying that a lot of the junk we're learning that I don't think has anything to do with anything will become useful?
I think we could've skipped the unit about "How to determine if a question is biased."
That seemed like a journalism thing to do...

And I love your signature!

Many math classes have long periods of learning what you should already know.  This is because math takes practice and you must understand everything you have learned fully to understand more advanced things.

It does get pretty annoying though.  In vector calculus, we learned how to deal with vectors (ironically having nothing to do with calculus).  In multivariable calculus, we spent a month reviewing what we learned in vector calculus, then never used it again.  Finally, in calculus of several variables (even more ironically, the book we are using is called Vector Calculus), we actually use vectors and calculus.
