    Oi vey, that does sound like an awful class. I've never had a really bad class... except Senior Seminar my last semester. The teacher was a biochemist, which is essentially the complete opposite of a physical chemist (which I consider myself). It was torture having to read biochemistry articles.

    And that's actually a decent by-the-book definition of a limit! Essentially, if you have a function, say [f(x) = 1/x], x obviously can not be 0, by basic rules of mathematics. But what if it *could* be zero? That's a limit. Basically just approximation, say, taking x closer and closer to zero (such as, x = 0.000001, 0.00000001, and so on), and you get an converging value. Limits are so important because they're truly the foundation of calculus.

    Derivatives are simply finding the slope of a single point of a curve (this is done by taking the slope of two points, the difference being "delta x", or dx, and the difference for y being dy, and you take the limit as dx --> 0, recalling that the equation of the slope, in this case, is the ever-famous dy/dx). Integration is finding the area under a curve, and this is done by making boxes within the curve with a width dx, summing them all up and taking the limit as dx --> 0). Those two things are the woodworking of calculus, but observe that they're both limits! And, as I always say, since limits are theoretical "what if's", then all of calculus is really in theory (because recall, for example, the slope being [lim @ dx-->0 (dy/dx)], dx can't "really" be 0), and that's what's so interesting about calculus, in my opinion!

    I've spent so much time in a lab-oriented atmosphere that I virtually forget what it's like to be in a traditional class. I kind of miss it; luckily, my teacher for Inorganic Chem taught in a very traditional, lecturing way. It was very refreshing, since most of my department taught by a method pioneered by our Organic teacher called "POGIL").

    Oh, well, thank you. I used to be a hard core debater in high school with both politics and religion. I stopped debating politics because I quickly learned there is no "right" side, just "less bad". But I still debate religion. It's always entertaining to me when I force a self-proclaimed always-right attitude to reduce himself to petty attacks to get in that last word when they obviously have been shown who's boss. haha. It's the cornerstone of any recreational debater.

    And I doubt you did much calculus in an Algebra class... once you start hearing about functions, and especially limits, you know you're learning calculus. Functions are the foundation, but limits, derivatives and integrals are the framework. Algebra just fits them all together. And when you apply all those things to the real world, what do you get? Science! :-D

    I never tried to learn Japanese. I took two years of German, a year of Latin, and have studied Russian and French on my own. Mathematics will always be my language of choice! It is, after all, the only universal language, no?

    Truth be told, I didn't like math until senior year, when I took trigonometry. And look at me now: I came one course short of a math minor (made it to Differential Equations, AKA Calculus 4). And let me tell you, Calculus is easy... Algebra is hard. If you're good at Algebra, then you've got 60% of Calculus down. I remember in DiffEQ, I WISHED I could just integrate. But noooo, I had to do Laplace transforms and partial fraction decomposition... it sucked.

    That's very good, being able to make it through that much work. I finished my Chem major in three years... it was tough, but rewarding! So you don't plan to go to college? Really, if you want to advance in anything, you'll want at least some kind of bachelors degree (I'm a BS activist, as there are so few science majors out there, but a BA will get you places too).

    Goodness, I sure hope psychology/sociology doesn't count as a science (sorry, I majored in Chemistry, I can't bring myself to accept a social science on par with our level of things... no physical scientist can :p). But let me tell you, if you plan to go to college, Physics will look good on ANY transcript, even if you're planning to major in English or something. That's what I tell all the pre-med Biology students who fear even saying the dreaded word "physics". Even Conceptual Physics (ie, not as math-oriented) would look good over no Physics.

    Oh, of course. I think its a basic human compulsion to help people when they need it. But you can never go into helping someone (with psychological issues, mind you) thinking that you'll be the deciding factor. Because that will always rest in the hands of the other person. Either someone will listen, or they won't.

    It's actually from the movie "Misery", and is ironically said by the villain. But it's always stuck with me! haha.

    And I think you can help others indirectly. You can help others help themselves, since in essence (with psychology), the only person who can truly "help" you is you, no?

    I do think that's the case. I agree, we are a social species, but personally, I do enjoy my me time. In fact, I'm often most content when I'm by myself. See, everyone puts on a face in front of others; it's natural. We put on a different face when we're with friends, coworkers, bosses, parents and teachers, no matter how minute that face may be. It's when we're alone that we're truly "who we are", no holds bar. I feel that if you're not content with who you truly are, then a social life is very difficult. I guess, in a way, it's breaking the barrier to the best of our abilities between those various facades we put on, you know?

    "If you can't enjoy your own company, what good company are you for anyone else?"?

    haha, that's actually from an old movie I saw. Not sure if it has any origins. But you don't agree with it? Why?

    Point out where I ever hinted that at said angle you could survive. I said you would have to completely botch the angle, therefore it wouldn't even be the same thing. You clearly have 0 understanding of guns and just as little understanding of physics, the human body and how to debate properly. Go away, do some research and grow up. A lot.

About Me

  • About PkMnTrainer Yellow
    Biography
    I'm Marin, a dedicated roleplayer and gamer. I also arrange video game music in various styles (mostly 8 bit, SNES style, or orchestral) as a hobby. I was born with a crippling social-mental disability that pretty much caused a trainwreck of problems the moment I set foot in a public school. Luckily, I've since had the opportunity to get diagnosed and get the help I needed to... compensate for my limitations to some degree. Emphasis on the fact that I was never really cured in any sense of the word.

    Needless to say, I have quite the life story that has left me with a lot of... interesting quirks. I won't assume you want to hear about any of that, though. I have a natural fondness for the English language and have been told, and I wouldn't disagree with them, that I seem to have an abnormally high understanding of vocabulary.

    If you had to ask me, and I had to put all my modesty aside and answer in an objective manner though, I'd say my greatest strength is probably perseverance.

    I consider myself a very social person, and I'm all about love n' hugs and *cough*pwning noobs and stealing their lunch money*Clears throat* stuff like that. (...Some people aren't. o-o;)
