100% say "yes"... I'd say very well.... until you see only 3 people have voted!!!

 

Still 3 people is good, there will be others who havent seen this thread, may never... and of course there's always quite a few guests.

I think I'll wait before I post the next few threads. There's no point going on for the time being.

To be honest, i haven't been reading them (i'm new enough to the site), but if they kicked off again, then i probably would read up on them.

I only recently became aware of these lessons, and I'm through the first two... I'll be starting the third after I post this message. I am hoping somewhere in the third there are the answers to the questions in the second lesson.

 

Regardless, this calculus lesson thing is pretty cool, I'm in, and I hope Dave is convinced that there are enough people to keep going soon.

Hopefully we can drum up enough interest. I'm certainly keen to continue, but only if there's more than, say, 5 people following it. That seems a sensible number, for now.

I already know what you've taught so far so I have only glimpsed at them. But, how much more do you plan on teaching? I would definitely be interested in some more advanced stuff.

There's a syllabus of sorts on the first post. I basically go up to things like the Chain Rule, but I can extend it if there's sufficient demand.

Yeah, I was talking about #7 on the syllabus :). I've never done any 3 variable (x,y,z) stuff. I'd go for that.. and if that seems like too far down the road I wouldn't mind creating some tuts (that you can edit or whatever) on less advanced stuff like quotient rule, L'Hopitals, area etc.

I was considering an introduction to the calculus of variations, since that's quite an interesting problem. I'll try to cover the slightly more advanced things like volumes of rotation and all that.

Good luck with volume, it might be a hard one to show... gonna need pics for that :/.

Luckily I have a scanner, so images shouldn't be too bad ;)

could you use the diagram part of [math]\LaTeX[/math] for that?

diagxy is only used for commutative diagrams really. I'm in the middle of working on a "safe" implementation of pstricks. However, I have so much on my plate at the moment that I don't really have the time to do it right at this very moment.

I thought I replied to this before, I guess maybe I put the post somewhere else by accident. I love the lessons, don't quit posting them!
