Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #633 - Studying Calculus - Exam #2



Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #633 - Studying Calculus - Exam #2

Hi Mom,

Studying for a Calculus test that I have today at 1 p.m.

These pictures are from my study session yesterday.

Up top, that's music by Brian Eno on the monitor. I included the video below.

The other picture has James Blake music playing, just FYI.

I work on my Musical Mondays posts while I study.

I am not sure how well I will do on this exam.

But the good news is that I have improved a great deal in the last two years.

I passed the second mastery test last week on the first try. I conquered those limits and derivatives.

This week's test is worth more points and is over not just derivatives but applying that knowledge to real work problems: analyzing functions, optimization, related rates, and so on.

A good take away is that when I made my study guide I went back to the problems that scared me the most in my first run of Calculus, the one right after you died, when I took a hardship withdrawal. I came up against problems in that course by exam #3 that I could not even begin to fully understand let alone complete correctly. So I put those problems on my study guide practice exam, and guess what? They are actually pretty easy.

I would say "wish me luck," Mom, but I don't need to. You're right here with me. All the time.

Thanks.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.
