Introduction to CalculusWhat do you guys think of this page: Introduction to Calculus "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20120716 17:17:28
Re: Introduction to CalculusHi MathsIsFun; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20120716 17:40:08
Re: Introduction to CalculusHi MathsIsFun,
Would you consider rewording this to You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #4 20120716 17:40:52
Re: Introduction to CalculusThanks bobby! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20120716 21:01:21

Re: Introduction to CalculusI am not expert in calculus,I am still learning...but that was basic and as all the lessons at MathIsFun site, its also easy to understand ,and I like it...

Re: Introduction to CalculusThanks anonimnystefy and debjit625, will try to make more pages as time permits "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20120728 08:01:45
Re: Introduction to CalculusThat's great. Your website is getting better by the moment (who knew it was possible).

Re: Introduction to CalculusNo ... no I didn't ... it seems I was replying to bobby while you were posting! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #13 20120728 20:06:30

Let's see you differentiate sin^11(x) using the delta x operator.

Re: Introduction to CalculusI agree with bobbym and Bob. I also found out that when I put the points together, it says "Points too close".

Re: Introduction to CalculusBrilliant. But frankly, I believe that you should create a counterpart site to MIF. That allows you to create more advanced tutorials on a slightly different site. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.
