BOBBing

Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately I am going to miss the test because I am attending S.E.T 2009 at U of M. I was given permission to write the test on Monday during my spare.

This unit was quite fun because I got to play around with equations like in grade 12 Pre-Calculus in the Logarithm and Trig Identities unit. The hardest integrals to evaluate were the inverse trigonometic functions like arctan and arcsin because when they appear in a question, you have to write it in a way that fits the actual derivative or antiderivative. But with a little time and clever factoring the question can be solved.

The most useful thing that I learned in this unit was the substitution technique where we had to substitute a function as a variable. It was very funny how Mr K explained how to use the technique because it always sounded like some sort of motivational speaking. Jamie knows what I'm talking about.

That is my BOB for the Antiderivatives unit. Sorry Mr.K for not informing you about my absence earlier but I informed Dr. Eviatar. Hopefully you are okay with that Mr. K.

Good Night and wish me luck on Monday :D

Huh? How did I do that? What did I say? ;-)

**giggles**

yeah, me and Benchmen were trying to hold it in. You were talking about how any function can be anything. Without realizing it, you kept rambling on saying something along the lines of "you can find anything in 'u'. If 'u' is lost, you can find 'u'".

I probably butchered that line. I think it was funnier than I just put it and then we talked about something else and it was..well, if it were in a psychological sense, it would be emotionally deteriorating...and reversed the motivational speech. I vaguely remember it...now I'm thinking about it...
