Learn for a week

WE finished this chapter in just like - a SNAP! -

I can't believe that I have actually ended this topic with a COMPLETE - let me emphasize more on that - ABSOLUTELY EXECUTED set of homework exercises plus an agreeable understanding of what integrals and derivatives are. For the VERY FIRST TIME...

WHOOHOOO!!!

That feels OH so good! Starting the year with a no-absent, no-late attendance... haha! I wish this would go on 'til the end of the next semester. -- i wish? :D

Quite a big information for such a small chapter. It was basically all about ACCUMULATION FUNCTIONS. These functions are called as such because they are integrals evaluated by accumulating the area under the graph of the integrand function f.

What I've gained throughout this short episode:
  • review on INTEGRALS and the FUNDAMENTAL THEOREM OF CALCULUS Part I
  • SECOND FUNDAMENTAL THEOREM OF CALCULUS
  • ACCUMULATION FUNCTIONS

and best of all

  • ways on getting the area or the integral of a function in a given interval using the calculator - that is so cool! if I had known that before, I've probably aced some of my past tests... or maybe not... who am I kiddin'? hahaha!!! But honestly, that's like so amazing. After practicing on some of those exercises I came up to the point where I said,

The Calculator's not that dumb after all. (laughs)
