Differential Calculus Introduction: Simple Polynomial Equations Polynomial Calculations: Image by blumik The Main Question in Differential Calculus “Differential calculus” is a big phrase but a very useful part of mathematics. Several previous articles have built a foundation, and now the first floor will be erected. The question that differential calculus asks is: What is the slope of a function at a given point? What Do “Slope” and “Function” Mean? 9 Mental Math Tricks Math can be terrifying for many people. This list will hopefully improve your general knowledge of mathematical tricks and your speed when you need to do math in your head. 1. Elementary Concepts in Statistics In this introduction, we will briefly discuss those elementary statistical concepts that provide the necessary foundations for more specialized expertise in any area of statistical data analysis. The selected topics illustrate the basic assumptions of most statistical methods and/or have been demonstrated in research to be necessary components of our general understanding of the "quantitative nature" of reality (Nisbett, et al., 1987). We will focus mostly on the functional aspects of the concepts discussed and the presentation will be very short.
Online texts Professor Jim Herod and I have written Multivariable Calculus ,a book which we and a few others have used here at Georgia Tech for two years. We have also proposed that this be the first calculus course in the curriculum here, but that is another story.... Although it is still in print, Calculus,by Gilbert Strang is made available through MIT's OpenCourseWare electronic publishing initiative. Here is one that has also been used here at Georgia Tech. Nerd Paradise : Divisibility Rules for Arbitrary Divisors It's rather obvious when a number is divisible by 2 or 5, and some of you probably know how to tell if a number is divisible by 3, but it is possible to figure out the division 'rule' for any number. Here are the rules for 2 through 11... The last digit is divisible by 2. The sum of all the digits in the number is divisible by 3. The last 2 digits are divisible by 4. The last digit is 5 or 0.
Calculus Integrals Math Sheet Definition of an IntegralReturn to Top The integral is a mathematical analysis applied to a function that results in the area bounded by the graph of the function, x axis, and limits of the integral. Integrals can be referred to as anti-derivatives, because the derivative of the integral of a function is equal to the function.

The theory behind this movie We can find interactive sites on the internet (like this) to draw points, move them, and check how the structure becomes updated in real time. In fact, if we have a series of random dots scattered in the plane, the best way of finding the correct Voronoi Telesación for this set is using the Delaunay triangulation. And in fact, this is precisely the idea shown on the animation: first the Delaunay Triangulation and then, subsequently, the Voronoi Tessellation. But to draw a correct Delaunay Triangulation is necessary to meet the so-called “Delaunay Condition”. This means that: a network of triangles could be considered Delaunay Triangulation if all circumcircles of all triangles of the network are “empty”.
Lee Lady: Calculus for the Intelligent Person Teaching students how to use the concepts of the derivative and the integral is different from teaching them to understand the concepts. Understanding is certainly nice, and to some extent it's something that students feel a need for, but my main goal is for students to be able to use calculus in applications. This means, among other things, being able to have confidence in setting up formulas using derivatives and integrals. Abstract (in HTML). Article in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format.DVI version of the article.Postscript version of the article.Slides for a brief talk on this article. These notes are an attempt to show how to express a given mathematical relationship in the form of an integral.
