>failed calc 3 for the third time because the ta caught me peaking at a note card during a closed note test
>kicked out of the CS department permanently for failing a requirement three times

holy shit can someone tell these departments to wake up. why the hell do I need to memorize some hundred year old formulas in order to get a cs degree and a software job? Mathfags are as hopeless as English majors, forcing their mental masturbation puzzles onto undergrads with no purpose outside of academic smugness

you're right anon. It's an intelligence test with little application for most programmers, let alone most people.

>he tried to memorize calc 3 equations
The reason they make you take calc 3 is to filter out retards like you.
You're supposed to understand the equations and learn where they come from. If you're trying to memorize the chart you posted, you're doing it wrong.
All those equations in each category are just small variations of each other.
The vector calculus section is mostly intuitive identities also.

linear algebra and calc 3 are the two math classes you will need as a CS major if you are doing anything in graphics, robotics or neural nets. A lot of problems boil down to setting up a system with lots of variables then solving it by taking the Jacobian and going down the gradient.

Math fags haven't solved a real problem in their entire (realistic) misserable lives. It's fascinating how they can keep on living by submerging themselves in (imaginary) detached delusions.

immediately contradicting yourself there. Math serves as a way to weed out any retards that think they'll just be playing vidya and earning 6 figure monthly salaries for sitting at a computer printing "Hello World!"

Why do I need to understand the fundamentals of my field? Can someone explain to these people that a college degree just exist to get a job, not proof of mastery of a field. Get weeded out. Should have studied more and not tried to cheat.
>>
Calc is fundamental to the field if you are doing anything beyond web dev. The web devs have dumbed it down with all their frameworks, but if you are doing AI you need to understand linear algebra and statics. If you want to do game dev. You need to understand vectors and geometry. The math although exist to prove O calculations and allows for proving that a solution actually works. If you want to build a system that provably works you need to be able to understand all that. A college degree is a certificate that you are capable of that. Its not just a license to go out and do web dev.

>>
>>83835506

>>
>>83835506
>>
>>83835538
On which part? The AI portion is all about finding mins and maxes of a continuous function. Its also about setting the correct values for change in behavior so that you don't fall into local mins and maxes. The idea is to find the global min or max to optimize your AI algorithm. It works by finding statically correlated behaviors. When talking about game dev the behavior of vectors become important for setting directionality and determining when collision happens. If I fire a cannon in a video game. The cannon ball will not instantly arrive at its destination. The vector will determine the initial direction the ball will travel while a global vector will pull that ball down until it hits the ground. Vectors can reflect direction and magnitude of things traveling. When talking about how to prove something you have several methods of proof one of those is proof by induction. This allows you to prove something is true infinitely. I could take a function and assume that it was true that the function had a certain effect. I would then prove this to be true for a base case(s) then I would prove that for any arbitrary number that the equation would be equal to my base case. I do this by proving that when substituting k for k+1 we get the same result. This allows me to prove that an algorithm will work for any arbitrary input in real numbers set. You can also use math for creating RTOS schedules. You should look up RMS scheduling.

>>83835738
Min and max is relative to what you are measuring. If you are looking for a formula that best fit the data this can be tricky to set the correct variables. Data can have patterns and you have to recognize those patterns and choose the correct algorithm to map it or create one that fits the pattern you then have to set your loss function correctly. This can be tricky and very finicky. If you mess up you can waste hours of time creating a useless model. There is a reason that those jobs pay so high.

what is under/over the min/max is still data and youre wasting it, based on what you believe or want this "AI" to believe, going back to >machine learning is not AI,
same with you being what is finding the "patterns"
same with "choosing the correct algorithm"

you then go on to map this pattern you see with an algorithm you choose, using min/max you decide
>
>"set the correct variables"
this is once again what it should do. changing these variables or creating what would be a "control" in science - both - are based on i cant, its complicated but "communication"
actually a lot of it is the "communication"...

how many layers are you on?
with the min/max, with the variables,
it doesnt take it all at "face value". its all to be kept and the data/info is useful, just at different levels it can go through or keep, as it tries to prove it or find the pattern. what is shows is what it has, as it works through the other

Assumption:
4^n + 14 is divisible by 6
Base case:
4^1 + 14 = 18 / 6 = 3 valid
Assume this is true for n = k where k is an arbitrary number:
4^k + 14 = 6A where A is some integer constant
If I rearrange I get this value
4^k = 6A - 14
Now I plug in k+1 to the function
4^(k+1) + 14 = 4 * (4^k) + 14
= 4(6A - 14) + 14 substituted using assumption
=24A -56 +14
=24A - 42
=6(4A - 7) This is dividing by 6 thud proving equality.
Thus if n= k then n = k+ 1 plus we proved true for the base case of one this proves true for all positive integers

NOPE! You have never worked for or with incompetents that don't understand the basics of their field. If it's a coworker then you end up covering for their mistakes, complain and you are not a team player. Managers are worse, because they try to lead what they don't understand and end up filling the team up with incompetent lairs. The only solution is to find a new job because whatever project those people are on is doomed.
>>
>>83843194
You went on a non-sequitur rant. The evidence you have provided seems to indicate that you work with idiots is because of the system that is currently in place.

People have no need to learn the basics in their field. They need to route memorize tons of useless information. This benefits mathematicians because they need to eat. Once there, your coworkers just make stuff confusing on purpose for job security. Perhaps if exams were open note and open book, the questions and content would actually need to be intellectually insightful, instead of merely going through the motions

It isn't just universities though. If anything they are the least corrupted. The worst is the educational system for children.
