anyone like calc?

That is calculus? I thought it was something very hard, because US high school students always complain about the difficulty. I've never figured out what calculus is, until now.

Or maybe your video is just a very basic example.

The video is more of a foundation for which calculus is built upon.

Calculus isn't hard, it just requires spending an hour or two every night studying it.

Of course, being that I took it in High school, it was more like 6 hours every night.

Ah, good times.

Please give me an example of what would make an academic subject difficult.

Depends. What is hard to you could be easy to me, or vice versa. Every brain is unique.

I found calculus was easy. It was actually more easy to me than algebra because I found it fun, rather than purely learning mindless rules in algebra.

As I said, I took it in highschool, so it was more like 6 hours every night, as opposed to college friends who spend 2 hours every night.


... i skipped pre cal so I had to learn pre cal on my own partially. So I HAD to spend 6 hours nightly.

>_>
<_<
I wouldn't recommend 4 AP courses in high school

Our subjects (Mathematics, social science, etc.) aren't divided into "sub"-subjects (Calculus, linear algebra, etc.) like in the US. The only customization we can choose is at what level we want the subjects. The levels go from C-B-A, C being the easiest, A the hardest. I used to envy the americans/others for being able to customize their high school education down to what "sub"-subjects they want, but now I don't. Deciding what "sub"-subjects you want and possibly missing out on something "enlightening" in another seems like a mess to me. I know that I'll get a well rounded education (maybe a bit more weight on the natural sciences) in this system.

It is explained here if you feel like reading more.

yep. I could have taken a 5th (AP computer science), but I dreaded learning code lines. The teacher was a priest with an Einstein IQ, but I simply didn't have the time, and so went into CAD instead.

Probably should have taken it though, seeing as my lack of code knowledge hits me in the face alot these days.

I figured Learning AP Chem (with another Einstein-like intellectual teacher), AP Calc AB (with no precal experience), AP English, and AP APS was good enough to kill the final hours of my childhood.


Meh, I still managed to skip my first year of college as a result, so I felt Shpeshal!  ;D

EDIT: I should probably mention I'm not in the crappy US public education system, so I've gone farther.

It's a real shame. I grew up with 2 kids who went to public grammar school, and wound up going to my same high school, but their public school tendencies left them behind alot. The difference between public and private education is so astounding some times in the tri state area it makes me kind of want to go into politics in order to fix it. I hate watching people send their kids off to school for a doomed educational experience because Bloomberg doesn't know how to respect teachers.

There are some areas in the boroughs  where it looks like another country. The people can't speak the same language, so it breeds fear and racism. I don't think I ever rode home on the subways without hearing someone yell out the N word, or countless other things, always being public school kids too.

Every thing affects everything. If you don't teach kids right, then it affects everything and winds up crashing the entire system.


ANYWAY, getting back on topic

A storm surge so powerful, it even felled Geraldo's mustache.
Probably not a Goat, either.
