Are Calculus books kaboobly doo?Hi;
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. #2 20130801 06:38:15
Re: Are Calculus books kaboobly doo?I presume you have not had the pleasure of reading AoPS's Calculus book. 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. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #3 20130801 06:53:30

Re: Are Calculus books kaboobly doo?Have read both yet they focus too much on sheer computation. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: Are Calculus books kaboobly doo?I do not agree but computation is what got the Rover up there on Mars, discovers new planets, builds all the weaponry that fights our wars. I could not imagine a world without it. 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.

Re: Are Calculus books kaboobly doo?
Yes. But then again who would buy their planned book if it was called "Yet another calculus book" ? You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #7 20130801 18:13:57
