How far are others in calculus and physics?

A photo of artyboy artyboy
My calculus and vectors class has just started on log derivatives and my physics class is on electric and magnetic fields. I want to gauge if my school is mote behind than other schools as my physics teacher said she had to eliminate the entire last unit since we won't have enough time for it.

In my calculus and vectors we just finished all of the calculus part and are starting vectors today.

We started vectors a five days back. At about this time last year were were at General Relativity in Physics.

My calculus exam is on monday and then we will be starting vectors. Our teacher split up the exams for calculus and vectors because they have very little in common.

Did physics last sem, and we did the vectors part of the course first, so we just started the calculus portion about last week, I think...

Calculus is easier than vectors, imo (so far).

Finished Calculus part two weeks ago, we have a test on the first unit of vectors early next week.
Physics, started electric and magnetic fields earlier this week.

We did our vectors midterm exam back on the 12th of April and we've been doing calculus since then. Our first test is on Tuesday. I have no idea what a log derivative is yet. :P
Physics? Don't even get me started. My teacher doesn't "do" units. So we have no idea how atrociously far behind we are. I swear, 90% of the course so far has been review from last year because he can't teach. Sigh...I'm going into physics...life = ruined...But I digress.

We finished vectors a couple weeks ago, and we just had our first calculus test yesterday.

For those who have taken calculus and vectors, which portion of the class did you like better? Calculus or vectors?

We've finished calculus, and we started the second unit in vectors today.
I think we're behind in physics though. :/ We're on energy and momentum..
Our teacher said we're not going to have enough time for the last unit (Quantum stuff). D:

I have to ask, as i'm not from Ontario, how in-depth is your calculus section of calculus/vectors? As far as i'm aware you guys cover limits of polynomials/trig functions, derivatives of polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trig functions, and simple applications?

Could someone elaborate?

Thanks.

We finished out last calc test day before yesterday and started vectors today.
If anyone wants to know how in depth I went in my school (BAYVIEW S.S. which is fav by UW), I can upload all my calc tests that I have except the optimization unit. Although our tests were simple, what we were taught in class I felt was really hard. They always gave us extra hard thinking questions that never appeared on the tests. Math dept is try to push us harder and become like math departments of A.Y. Jackson S.S. which is just impossible now.

Vectors: addition, subtraction - using trig laws rather than components (i think components is next - or dot product). Calculus is done

Physics: just finished up electric fields. projectile/dynamics/centripetal/energy are done

Chemistry:finishing electrochemistry. Equilibrium is done, organics up to reactions of hydrocarbons are done (self-study unit)

Ontario curriculum high school calculus is single variable differentiation. No fancy theorems, though, and a hand-waving but I suppose appropriate approach to limits. I wouldn't say the applications had to be simple, just restricted to the theory that is taught.

Calculus- Finished vectors, just finished product/quotient law to find derivatives, apparently we're starting logs soon then theres not much else.

Physics- Forces done, Centripetal force and circulur accelleration done, Energy transfers and Momentum done, astronomy almost done

General relativity?



To be fair, the guy spent 3/4 of class time talking about how much of a dick Einstein was. And how much of a dick Kepler was. And how Feynman is the most awesomest person in existence.

Physics - We have done all of the Dynamics, Momentum and Energy, and next week we will be having a test on the Gravitational, Electrical and Magnetic Fields.

Calculus - We finished the Vectors portion about 3 weeks ago and are currently looking at the Power Law, Product Rule etc of derivatives.



Damn, we lumped all of the energy, work, power, and gravitational field topics into one big energy unit, and we haven't written a test on it yet. Looks like my class is (unsurprisingly) behind.

Any news on those calc tests (stranger)?

whoa, I have done the whole physics, and just written the final unit test, Modern Physics, today.
For MCV, I have finished the whole thing about 1-2 months ago because I'm taking AP Calculus.

I didn't expect that my school finished the materials pretty sooner than the others.
