I got a 4 on the BC.

Got a B+ on Multivariable Calculus

I am borderline failing Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. I understand most of it but the tests are very difficult and are more word problems so you have to figure out how to create the equation and know what equation to use and then find the answer which is so much harder than actually finding the answer.


I still like Calc and I'm thinking of getting a minor in math while majoring in Civil Engineering.

What calc are you in Fresh?

I took BC in 10th grade and did pretty awful in the class ... but I still managed a 5 on the AP test. Multivariable was pretty moderate; differential equations, however, absolutely kicked my ass. And I took that the same time as physics B, which killed me - yeah, that was not a fun year.

Then I went to college and drank all the time and pretty much stopped thinking altogether, so whatever intelligence I once had as a teenager is no longer.

So fresh, UI doesn't have a "calculus for business applications" or anything like that? My school had a couple courses that basically amounted to advanced algebra.

Yes, the U of I has business calculus which I heard is loads easier than strictly math limited courses. But I don't need that in my major, the only math I have left to take is research and analysis

YES I finished my calc final and was fairly pleased that I knew all of the concepts and was able to answer every question on the final, (unlike the previous two exams). My all nighter paid off, except at the end of the final I was like "fuck this I'm so tired right now, this is the longest exam in the history of the world" and it was, 16 pages for a math exam, is HUGE when you have to show your work and all. Took me just over two hours whew. Now that' I've been up 28 hours straight I think I'm going to go into a coma until 3 PM, which is 4.5 hours until I have to start practicing my speech final.
Good nite.

At least you fared better than I did on my calc final.

I never once took calc...and I never will. There is NO WAY IN HELL I'll ever be able to do that kind of math.

Its not that bad if you have a good teacher and actually try to understand it.

I am taking higher calculus with a horrible teacher giving us extremely hard tests so it is not fun.
