    Default Has Anyone Taken Calculus?

    Well I'm taking Calculus 1 again this semester in college. I'm looking for anyone on Habbox who has taken Calculus 1 because I failed my first exam. It's actually pretty devastating because that is essentially what I need to move along for my degree. Maybe someone has tips on how to pass Calculus 1. My class grading 90% Tests are you grade. So maybe someone has tips, wants to help me pass by tutoring, or tell me how they even passed the class. I did tutoring in my college, but the tutor basically was going off information from online and really didn't give my explanations I needed.

    I'm not really sure if we have calculus in Malaysia. But I assume calculus is mathematics.

    I used to fail most of my mathematics exam. But then it changed to a great turn of which making me truly believe that when we talk about maths, it really is about practice.

    You just have to do the similar questions over and over again until you really grab it and this, must not be ordered by anyone but rather with your own determination and want.

    I know, it's easier said than done but that's the truth.

    I'm not sure if it helps (pretty sure it didn't) but I wish that you will be successful with your calculus in the most soonest time!

    Pretty much just constant practice but also reading from multiple sources, as sometimes different explanations can provide different insight.
    Typically I'd try to get ~3 example sets per method, repeat them to effectively try and just remember the steps to answer the examples. Provided you have every case covered, it pretty much just becomes a case of comparing the examples you remembered to the exam questions and basically just switching out the numbers. The only thing you would have to be careful of is identifying what methods to use.

    My friend did Calculus at A-Level and then did a mathematical type degree, very clever Maths wise he is.

    Good luck to you, I just about passed GCSE Maths - that said I can still count better than George Osborne.
    one last time from Freddy's joint.
