In the first term of my Calculus, I had a hard time to review all my previous Math subjects, like Trigonometry and Algebra. I don’t have any idea in Calculus; I just know that it’s harder and more complicated than my previous Math subjects. After the midterm of this Semester I somehow know what Calculus for is, I learned that Differential Calculus can be use in finding the change in ratio. I also know that Calculus can be use to find the maximum and minimum rate of objects. It can also apply in other situation that involve changing and math. Using the concept of function derivatives, it studies the behavior and rate on how different quantities change. Using the process of differentiation, the graph of a function can actually be computed, analyzed, and predicted.

Though it is complicated to use well, calculus does have a lot of practical uses - uses that you probably won't comprehend at first. The most common practical use of calculus is when plotting graphs of certain formulae or functions. Using methods such as the first derivative and the second derivative, a graph and its dimensions can be accurately estimated. These 2 derivatives are used to predict how a graph may look like, the direction that it is taking on a specific point, the shape of the graph at a specific point (if concave or convex), just to name a few. When do you use calculus in the real world? In fact, you can use calculus in a lot of ways and applications. Among the disciplines that utilize calculus include physics, engineering, economics, statistics, and medicine. It is used to create mathematical models in order to arrive into an optimal solution. For example, in physics, calculus is used in a lot of its concepts. Among the physical concepts that use concepts of calculus include motion, electricity, heat, light, harmonics, acoustics, astronomy, and dynamics. In fact, even advanced physics concepts including electromagnetism and Einstein's theory of...

...History of Calculus
The history of calculus falls into several distinct time periods, most notably the ancient, medieval, and modern periods. The ancient period introduced some of the ideas of integral calculus, but does not seem to have developed these ideas in a rigorous or systematic way. Calculating volumes and areas, the basic function of integral calculus, can be traced back to the Egyptian Moscow papyrus (c. 1800 BC), in which...

...An Insight to World on the Turtle's Back
The creation of the world has come to question many scientists and religious believers alike. Mythology answers the beginning of time with unstructured elements and even abstract ideas. The "World on the Turtle's Back" by the Iroquois tribe shows an understanding with the old, Biblical theory of right and wrong, however in their culture, left isn't always evil. All mythology has a certain theme, which philosopher Joseph Campbell...

...construct my clinic?` he used to smile and say`why not dear.` then i would say `grandpa then i will certainly treat you after i become a doc. and i will not charge you a single penny` and he used to enjoy this childish talk with me.however i and my grandpa were soon parted due to my dad`s job . we moved away from the village till 3 years . we returned only after grandpa`s death. now i am in 9th. and sad to say now i have become a brutally ambitious...

...CALCULUSCalculus is the study of change which focuses on limits, functions, derivaties, integrals, and infinite series. There are two main branches of calculus: differential calculus and integral calculus, which are connected by the fundamental theorem of calculus. It was discovered by two different men in the seventeenth century. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz – a self taught German mathematician – and Isaac...

...A worldview, in my opinion, is the way you look at the world and how you see God; a worldview is a set of beliefs that directs the way you act. To determine your worldview, you must ask yourself a few questions. Some of these questions include: Who is God? Where did I come from? Why do I exist? What is my purpose in life? Answers in Genesis defines a worldview as “the overall perspective from which one sees and interprets the world. A worldview is a collection of...

...best way to do this is
through activities such as sports, games and playing with other kids. If they cannot play make-believe games, how can
they develop their imagination? How can they learn physical co-ordination or learn important social lessons about
winning and losing if they do not practise any sports? Many children form strong, personal relationships with the friends
they play with, and without the opportunity to do this, they could grow up emotionally immature or...

...bar exams, and be found by an admitting board to have the character to represent and advise others. Lawyers who want to practice in more than one state often must take separate bar exams in each state.
After graduation, lawyers must keep informed about legal developments that affect their practices. Almost all states require lawyers to participate in continuing legal education either every year or every 3 years.
Many law schools and state and local bar associations...
