So, I'm approaching a time where I may fail my Math subject (I'm a Math major) due to the variety of hard problems our professor gives. Are there any people who would want to help me out by giving me Calculus questions (answerable by a freshman Math major - limits, derivatives, integrals and such)?
Thanks in advance for helping.
What math are you in currently? Because if you are having trouble with basic calculus I would suggest you rethink your major.
I agree with Xanatos. If you're a math major and you're having trouble with basic calculus, you either need to study your ass off or consider another major. How much do you know? It's hard for me to decide which problems to give you... Something to keep in mind: calculus is a combination of some easy and some hard problems all backed by extremely simple concepts. If you learn the concepts, then the problems get easy. For instance, do you know what differentiation is? Can you prove the limit definition to me and show me how a secant line becomes a tangent line? Learn all of the concepts and some of the proofs and it becomes easier. Here's some very basic problems to start with:
Lim (x--->0) (cosx)/x
F(x) = (x^2)(cosx)
F ' (x) = ?
If this is above your level and you haven't reached this yet, just tell me and I'll help you through it.
My major is Physics and calculus is a kind of Heart for Physics. I think a bit of practice and some memorization of formula is a big help in calculus.
What I ment about memorization was just formula. If you start to solve a question and you get
integration of (sinx) than would you start to derive that as well when you are trying to solve a much bigger problem. It is handy that you know integration of (sinx)= -cosx
You are right that we should understand how it comes. But while solving a bigger problems you need to know the basic things and formula. I find this way very handy and it saves a lot of time for me. I just memorize the basic formulas and go on with my work. I think I had to this because of the way I am taught and the way I give exams. In our system of Evaluation of students. He/She is required to appear in an examination which has a duration of 3 hours and you are not allowed to see any books or note and things like that. But you guys might have a open book exam and you dont have to rush to solve the question in a short time. But my system of evaluation force me to memorize some of the things.
