    Finally, after toiling and slaving over Word, MathType, TI-84, and the dreaded Maple 11; It's all done

    You can find my work in my portfolio at http://anthonyjh.wordpress.com/the-portfolio/academic-work-portfolio/

    A SERIOUS THANKS TO...

    - CoolRabbit: for basically helping me through the whole problem. It would have taken 5 times as long if he didn't come aroundicon_exclaim.gif

    - MSUBioNerd & Lucasxxx: for giving me a beginning pushicon_idea.gif

    - Caslon5000 & jprichva: for giving me a smileicon_biggrin.gif

    - iguanaSF, KOgary, & Tyinstl: for actually being sexy ass dorks (that STILL live too far away from me :cryicon_smile.gif but at least give me hope that somewhere out there is a sexy gay athletic mathematically inclined smart ass icon_biggrin.gif

    - For Viewers Like You: That watched me constantly bump this thread and annoy you with vivid memories of horrid mathematical nightmares. HEHEHE

    I enjoyed it. I teach math, and I'll be using this problem with my students in the future. So thank YOU! icon_cool.gif

    How's your neck doing?

    The problem comes from "Calculus - Early Transcendentals, 6th Ed. by James Stewart" on pages 206-207.

    It's much better, I'll be going to the gym tonight. icon_biggrin.gif However... I'm not sure if my professor will accept a late paper.. sigh. But it's all good, I enjoyed finally getting through the project.

    I REALLY need to build problem solving and "proof" skills. Learning to prove stuff is going to be the center of the rest of my mathematical career im sure...

    Mehh, depends on what branch of math you go into... discrete guys don't really prove a lot of things, continuous guys prove lots of things. Numerical computation guys don't really prove much either. Granted there is still proof in any branch of math, you can avoid 99% of it by going into certain fields (but they suck icon_biggrin.gif)

    Ooooh, Theory Boy throws down the gauntlet!

    Perhaps Theory Boy would like to arrange a challenge with a Discrete Guy in a bit of portfolio analysis? Maybe a Statistical Guy -- some image recognition perhaps? That is, if you're MAN enough! Or wait, let me guess, you are too busy proving 1+1 = 2?




    All competition would be nude, of course. ;)


    PS Warning, this post contains ironic humor. Persons who don't speak English very well, young people under the influence of hormones, pregnant women, bodybuilders consuming gallons of anabolic steroids, and just generally overly serious types, should not try to interpret the contents of this post, as it may cause chafing, rash, dizziness, fever, nausea, and general public embarrassment.

    Haha, indeed, the gauntlet has been thrown!

    However, I don't really do a lot of discrete/statistical math icon_smile.gif
    Math that is actually practical seems silly, lol. icon_eek.gif

    I much prefer proving that some function in an Nth dimensional metric space is bounded or compact or maps or whatever icon_biggrin.gif

    However, if the Discrete man wants to arrange a challenge involving numerical solutions to PDE's (which happens to be a form of discrete math!) I can accommodate that!

    Um . . . When I finally take a Math 400 level math class, when we'll talk about gauntlets and throwing down icon_biggrin.gif
