Modern textbooks have too many exercises.

Modern textbooks have too many exercises. This is discriminatory against people with OCD like me because we're compelled to do all the exercises, so we get bogged down doing a bunch of tedious exercises long past the point of gaining facility.

    Yes. I once did all the odd exercises in Stewart’s calculus while taking a shitload of adderall. Was fun though. 7/10

    the reason they have that many exercises is that dumb kids and asian kids learn by rote. the lecture is useless to them they need 1000 exercises with answers in the back fo the book

      Correct. Doing a lot of problems to understand a math concept is dubious and a sign of midwittery. Especially when it's 20 problems of the template but with different numbers. It can be fun to do them all in a speedrunny way though.

    Zoomer, please. I remember being assigned 100 problems per night for no other reason than the curriculum said so.

        Elementary school math. 100 problems of basic multiplication, every night. No good reason, just work work work.

        I don't think it's the calc class is what's making you want to stick your finger up your ass.

        >I'm in Calc 4
        Wtf, it goes up to 4? How much calculus is there? I feel like you would move up to something more complex after Calc 3, linear algebra, Number theory, Real analysis etc (idk not a math person, only ever took upto calc 2, just what some of my math major friends were/are taking I believe, none of whom ever mentioned a calc 4). What the frick do you even learn in the FOURTH year of calculus?

        Is calc 4 just diff eq or something else?

          Mine is the 2nd half of Calc 3. I think there's more rigorous versions elsewhere

      homie this is America not India or China. We don't do that shit around here. And honestly, I hate all my Indian professors precisely because of this. Because they seem to be under the impression that they still are in India and are the only ones that assign useless unnecessary stupid shitloads of work. In your country, perhaps 100 problems per night is common, nobody has ever done that here, because you don't need to do it. Which is proven by Americans producing way better scientists, mathematicians etc. every year in numbers larger than India has produced in the totality of it's history.

    Just start to solve the exercises in your head instead of writing this shit down. Easily cuts the needed time down to 1/20.

    Take vitamin D3 capsules from carlyle.
    10,000iu in the morning with a fatty meal or milk and 8 hours later take another one, see the study.

    This study continues to establish vitamin D as an important differentiation agent for developing dopamine neurons, and now for the first time shows chronic exposure to the active vitamin D hormone increases the capacity of developing neurons to release dopamine.

    https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jnc.15829#:~:text=This%20study%20continues%20to%20establish,developing%20neurons%20to%20release%20dopamine.

    Over time you will notice less ocd, the human body produces a maximum of 25,000iu a day when expose to sun so only taking 20,000 a day will be safe for yo as long as you don't exceed this.

    You know, although I could get the gist of it and do physics, I was never 100% *exactly* sure how the partial derivatives are the basis for the tangent space. Now I've been looking into it so that I might become 100% *exactly* sure, but the result of my investigation was that the partials aren't exactly the basis for the tangent space. They are the basis for an isomorphic vector space. That's why I was never able to obtain a clear expression in the form "partial mu equals e hat mu." I am glad that I know this now, and I will be glad to put a detailed exposition of the isomorphism into my manuscript in place of the detailed exposition of an equality that I had originally intended.

      They literally are a basis for the tangent space though. It follows from the way that the tangent space is defined

        The tentative result of my investigation is that they literally aren't. Mainly Sections 2.1 and 2.3 in pic related.
