Default Vector Calculus

My professor pretty much rushes through the material and doesn't even bother explaining how he came up with those equations, and how those equations are related to the concepts.

And now, I am so confused and having such a hard time finishing my homework. And reading the textbook is no help either, because the explanations the book gives are incredibly hard to understand.


Professor, would you please explain how you came up with those equations instead of telling us to just memorize them? Please? T_T

It was a joke not to be taken serious of.

You could always try and consult quick notes on the internet or read your books/notes until you understand.

Usually in college, the class go extremely class because it is like a year of high school classes packed into less than half a year. Like my calculus 4 class goes through about 2 or more chapters each class rushing through all the materials.

There are several ways to solve this:
1. There is usually a syllabus for each class saying what will be taught in that class on that day. You should read about it before class starts so you will understand a bit when they start teaching.
2. Go for extra help. There are tons of TAs and teachers that are willing to help you understand.
3. Do homework with other friends. Its a good way to get new friends every semester. Find some people and do homework with them. I find this extremely useful since you guys can teach each other.
4. I really don't recommend this but look up the answer for the homework. But don't just blindly copy it. See how the problem is done and try to understand it completely and try to do it on your own after looking at part of the solutions.

Its better to get on top of things before midterms come and you will be unable to cram in time. Also, don't try to do Calc 4 homework two hours before its due. ; - ;

*goes back to panicking about my hw and the quiz in class*

I stay far, far away from Math (only come into contact with it in Statistics lol) so I can't really comment, but I usually try to figure out stuff myself. If I can't, then either 1) ask a friend, or 2) email the lecturer or a TA. Usually by (2) the problem gets solved.

Eventually we'll be trying to cram all the years of a subject in high school in half a year. WOOT for setting sail for fail.

....We REALLY need to balance things out better by making elementary school faster.

Elementary: 50% speed
Middle: 75% speed
High: 100% speed
College/University: 200% speed

FFFF....see that 2x increase?

Nope. The college/university one was based off of Dragonfly's post, which is basically 2x the speed ._.

Well look at it this way, the average amount of days a year in school is around 180 days and usually class meets every single day.

Lets take one class for this example. Calculus AB AP is an advance placement class you can take in high school. This class is equivalent to a Calculus 1 class in college.

So if you take it in high school, you will get a rough estimate of 180 days to learn all the materials. If you take it in college, you don't meet everyday. In my school, Calculus 1 only meets 2 times a week in a semester.

So thats like 30 days to learn something in college when you can learn it in high school in 180 days.

Moral of story: Stack on as much APs as you can in high school and do well on them so you will feel a lot better in college.

Yes, all you current high school and future high school students, listen to this person. What he/she says is very true!

I took AP Calculus back in high school, so I had no trouble with Calculus II in college. However, Calculus III (Vector/Multivariable Calculus) introduces A LOT of new concepts that are not covered in high school Calculus classes, that's why it's kinda hard to keep up.

Based on what I have heard, the schools should really speed up the curriculum in schools. If not then a lot of people will keep getting screwed....
