Just a late night rant...
Is anybody else up at 1:30am doing homework? God, it sucks, doesn't it?
I'm not doing 'hard' work, but, graphing logarithmic functions by hand, and finding 'assymtotes, inflection points, extremums, etc' can get very drawn out, tedious, and boring. Right around now, its taking me 3x longer to do this work than it should be b/c I keep making stupid mistakes with eyes half-open. So yeah....goin' to bed now. I've got to be up in a few hours to take a CPR certification... *sigh*
K, bed time. C ya.
<-- eat first

Calc II...I should have done this loooong ago, but I kept opting out of math for quite a few semesters....bad move. Now I've got to finish all my math and my workload is much higher now. Oh well, I did it to myself.Originally Posted by PVSkyHigh

True...the only time you'll see me associated with the word 'corps[e]' will be in a newspaper article about a serial necropheliac... Did I just say that out loud? Damn...did it again!Originally Posted by natedogg

And Mathmatica is some good software

hmm...I'll take a look at that....thx for the info!
Hasn't been too bad so far, but, its just all the trig that sucks. when you've not really used it in over a year, it creates problems

Thx bro, i appreciate it.
i didin't know they actually offered a 'trial version' on their website, but i just saw that in the link you gave me...i guess, it would be more correct to say i've got a 'backup copy' on the way, b/c its not actually a 'trial version'

Mathematica is some freakin' awesome software. I've got a notebook I can shoot you where I was working on Cubic Roots. Some ideas on finding the extrema and inflection points along with some good visuals when plotting. Here is a pic of one of the graphs.

Nice, bro...My download just finished...is it easy enough to learn to be useful for helping me in my test in a couple days? I don't have a calc book, and the xerox @ the library broke, so I got put behind 5 sections! haha.
I really know 'nothing' about mathematica right now, other than you guys recommended I look into it...so, anything and everything you've got for me is much appreciated

Hey, how did you tell the program to define those points? I'm playing around with it, and haven't quite figured that out yet Thx!

Oh, no need to go out of your way bud. I did a little bit of research, and, its not 'that' necessary for me at the moment to have those cool little extra features, ya know? It seemed like it would be convenient, but after reviewing how much code goes into it, its not worth it right now since it was 'just for fun' so to speak.
I do have one question though...when I solve for x in an equation (looking for critical points) I often get multiple points, of course. Now, how do I assign those pionts to different variables so I can later plug them in to solve for their corresponding y value?

I've attached a zipped notebook. All you have to do is plug in the original equation and then evaluate the rest of the cells. plot1 has a range of -5,5 so you may have to change that depending on what you are working with. Hope this helps.
