Who here has had to study calculus (or pre-calc) at some point in their life?
Took 4 semesters of Calculus and now when I go through the fast food places I can confuse the cashier by giving her/him odd amounts so I get bills back and no change!
Hmm, never thought of that! I just finished Pre-Calculus this year ... the stuff nearly killed me, but I'm going to have to take the full Calculus in college!

Not me. I never liked mathematics....mainly because I am lazy and it wasn't easy for me, like some of the other classes. So I studied as little math as possible.

I had to take it in college. I barely passed it and do not remember the first thing. I am not good at abstract mathematics. Never had to use it.

Pre-Calc = Harder than Calc (in my opinion)

The full Calculus course was required for an SE degree way back when.

It was tough because of the innumerable equations you have to remember. The concepts were rather easy, and I knew WHAT equation I needed I just couldn't ever remember the actual formula.

I mean when your in a full engineering job working for NASA, are you really going to rely on your college memory for an equation or are you going to go look it up in the book?

Calculus is such an enourmous crash course in higher math I really see no point in making it completely closed book. Access to the raw equations at least should be allowed. I'd have gotten through it a lot easier. (The Chinese native exchange professor didn't make calc 2 any easier too! The drave-tive, you know what drave-tive is don you?")

I still have my calc book today 25 years later and when I need to look something up .. I LOOK IT UP! I don't think anyone can remember the 150+ formulas you need to learn much further than the last exam of the series...
