    The Rieman sum is so useless. Just use the FTC #2. Did the teacher specifically ask you to use a Rieman sum?

    Riemann was a faggot, I'm going to build a time machine and kill his sum of an infinite number of infinitely small sections ass.
    It's useless as hell but because you cover it in the curriculum they test you on it. Even though once you've learned the stuff at the end of the semester you would never use Riemann sums again.

    p.s. Calculus was easy and I got an A.

    same with epsilon / delta stuff, just use the limit rules. :mad:

    Yeah, like 1/4 of the test as on Riemann Sums. Stuff like

    If the nth term of a Riemann Sum of a graph on [a,b] can be defined as

    [(n/2)^2]*[((n-1)n/4)^4] then evaluate

    bSa -8f(x)




    ...bSa meaning the integration of -8f(x) from b to a.

    I only took it a year ago and neither do I.

    All you have to remember how to do is simple integration and differentiation. All the other stuff is useless filler that no one uses except a math major.

    recapping highschool marks... 80% in both chem 12 and discrete math... not on a curve, i was THE top of my class... fortunately my school in known in the ontario area as being notoriously difficult, so it won't be as hard as one would think to get into university with those marks. calc, bio 12, physics 12 and possibly english 12 courses coming up next semester, doing bio 11 and physics 11 and english 11 this semester.
