This is a thread to review/learn calculus.

We will all be reading through James Stewart's "Calculus" 4e edition.

see: http://libgen.rs/book/index.php?md5=67AF6FA4D6DAB692F81A09B6A2EBCC7B

This is inspired by my need to review undergraduate mathematics due to work/school purposes. I'm a bit rusty and I've forgotten a ton of math.

We will start by doing problems from his algebra review pdf which is prep for the calc problems.

Based. I'm a maths grad and am free to help if you reach any impasses.


>stewart's calculus
>not keisler's infinitesimal approach
take the hyperreal pill


3. 2x(x-5) = 2x^2 -10x
4. (4-3x)x = 4x - 3x^2


How is this possible, did you just rote memorize the algebra rules you needed in Calc?
You need a decent grasp on Algebra to pass Calc.


Took Algebra 1 for 4th time in college and moved up literally all the way from there until Calc 2

it was really hard because I basically gave so little of a fuck past the 6th grade I still struggle with some basic calculations even after 2 years of non stop mathematics

What if I wanted to read more or less "contemporary" philosophers like Sartre, Beauvoir, Adorno, Deleuze, Zizek, Badiou, etc.. but don't have the time and, dare I say, sufficient interest to go through Kant, Plato, Aristotle, and all the other classical authors of philosophy? How much do I have to lose? I'm willing to spend a couple of months reading Plato, but I think I'm only willing to go through secondary sources for Aristotle. Same goes for the philosophers that predated the "contemporary" ones mentioned above. I'd be willing to read a history and primer on German idealism and maybe even read primary enlightenment texts if I have to.

So how much do I have to lose? People who are good at philosophy please answer.

This might be better in a separate thread but whatever.

Would it be a bad idea to learn French by reading the untranslated works of Deleuze and Guattari? Perhaps I should stick to the existentialists.


Thanks for the material in this thread guys, really good stuff.


I think it's good to practice any skill just on the threshold of difficulty, so my guess is that if you're in the process of learning French D&G might be not ideal. (They are, after all, often regarded as infamously unclear.) That's why my own French reading at this moment is just newspapers and popular histories. But if it works for you go for it.

This guy Is called nigel askey, and is apparently a legitimate historian. He published a paper debunking TIK's claim that the K/D ratio of the soviets during WW was 1/1.6, instead claiming that the soviets lost over 4 more times as many combatants as the Germansduring WW2. Here is his paper. I'm not a qualified historian and I dont have access to acrhives or time to research, so I can't debunk him.


I checked out his website and alsthough he does seem to be knowledgeable, he makes certain ridiculous claims that the "Vicors write history" in WW2, and the allies covered up how technologically and tactically inferior they were to the germans.

I've read that 1.3:1 irreplaceable casualty ratio is also what US and British forces had fighting against Germany.


Where did you see that?


Post some more Wehraboo arguments and get to debunking them!

Some archive documentaries

Also can anyone help me find an old documentary about Nazi atrocities? I remember it distinctly because among the footage used were filmed portions of Belarus villages and a literal piles of baby corpses torched alive by the nazi scum.

I'm jelly of first worlders, they can get books for so cheap. Everything here is expensive, even used books in tatters.


Does that mean the Penguin classics catalog will get bigger?


They should burn all the Chodehouse books if they are going. Chodehouse is baby crap. I don't read it and I don't need it shoved down my fucking throat cause manbaby will pee pee his pants if you don't read it.


unfortunate word choice


I truly can't stand hearing about Chodehouse. Try talking about something I actually care about. Even just one page. Everyone here backs me up too. They don't want to hear some fat geek recite his favorite Chodehouse gags. Try to read and discuss somethin I fucking care about. Chodehouse peeves me off to no end.

In a way, going to the future is possible if you move at relativistic speeds.
Going to the past would require moving at above the speed of light.

I can't concentrate when reading on a computer screen, is it a bad idea or nah? Ideally I'm only going to buy cheap used stuff I find.

Another question, should I try to get the absolute best translation and publisher or is does it not matter what edition I get as long as I freaking read something?

Hardcover is better because the book is far less likely to get torn or the cover itself wear out. Paperback books are known to be cheap because they're shoddy 90% of the time.


Adding to this I'd also get a hardcover if it's a reference work that you're going to be opening often.


Ok, but Realtalk.
I was planning on ordering some Cockshott to read it in physical, but this whole "will be put on a List" is worriesome


tbh cockshott is very low risk. It's basically all computer science, maths, planned economy shit, as opposed to 'let's kill and maim every land owner' and so on


me too anon. used bookstores/op shops are great, and if your area has based unions they occasionally have some prole literature.

I feel like the busywork is college is draining my desire to live. How do people make it through four years of this?


You don't.


Just deal with it, you don't want to be struggling to survive if you have the chance to get an education to get a better job and therefore more money for praxis. Think of it as your mini long march of your individual life to become less of a wage slave, assuming your degree gives higher salaries. Many proles work jobs, raise kids, and also do college, so you can too comrade. I hope you are finished on time good luck


that’s what I thought at first, and now I did so poorly that I’m doing it in 5 years


Had the same thing but I managed to scrape through with the grade I wanted in the end.
I like this though
>Think of it as your mini long march of your individual life to become less of a wage slave
But it'll depend on what motivates you. What motivates you comrade?


Same as >>4515 and I also owe my university a lot of money, so chop-chop if you don't want to end up like me.
