calculus is the universal language. Calculus is
the mathematics of change," said Professor Louis
At the chalk board, Shahin
demonstrated solving the volume in a corner using
a multiple integral and the variables x,y,z.
He put a second on the board with the information
needed to solve for the center of mass (center
of gravity) of the same shape with uniform density.
He mentioned that the next
chapter would introduce Stoke's Theorem, which
would simplify calculation.
Suzi Bailey plans to transfer
to U.C. Davis, where she hopes to major in veterinary
medicine. The school only requires a year of calculus,
but she said she wanted the five units. She is
canvassing to locate a veterinarian who will allow
her to do an internship so she can fulfill U.C.
Davis' requirement of work in the field.
For Brian Oliver, the 15 units
of calculus is mandatory. He plans to transfer
to U.C. Riverside, where he will study physics.
He hopes to become a research physicist. "Physics
is fun," he said.
Clayton Garner is finishing
up his stay at Victor Valley College and plans
to transfer to Brigham Young University
in Provo, Utah. "Their engineering school is well
thought of," said Garner. "The lifestyle there
would be more compatible." He wants to study chemical
engineering and work as a research chemist.
