At first it was kind of surprising how many college students were on this board, but I guess it makes sense. I'm about to finish up Tech Calc I. It hasn't been too bad. Hopefully Calc II will be the same, and I will be done with all that.

Yes, but you'll have to opportunity to run away to mexico with a 13 year old. Crazy *** women teachers... what is up with them? More importantly, where were they when I was growing up? This last one is gonna go down hard though, she's screwed.

As an educator, if you want to be well off when you retire, get a job at South Side High School in Rockville Centre, NY. I hear that the retirement package for that school district can set you up nicely in just about anywhere else in the country. (Cost of living in RVC is stupid high.)

I am married to a teacher. 70k a year for 9 months work isn't too bad. Not to mention the job security (after tenure). No marketplace competition, no stress over productivity. True you won't get rich, but after like 5 years you can be plenty comfy. Just take a walk around a school staff parking lot sometime. BMers, Volvos, and $40k SUV's are the norm.

Damn. No wonder GA has such shitty schools; teachers here get 30-40k/yr. Including my mother, who has a master's, and has been teaching pre-k since all the kids left the house.

yeah teachers in KY get around 30K i think the higher level they teach the more money though. Still 30-40K is not the end of the world.

Yeah i took that too, the problem was my professor is getting his book published in heat transfer. Basically he has a new method to solve problem involving heat exchangers.

Just as an update calculus still sucks. Derivatives of inverse trig functions FTL.

I just had to do that at work. I was setting up a crossing course simulation (aircraft flying past a point). The radar's azimuth angle roughly follows an arcsin path and I needed to find the velocity curve to check against my filters.

So there is a chance I could actually use some of this one day? I'm slowly figuring this stuff out but man it's hard. I'm averaging 2-3 problems correct an hour. It just takes me forever to figure these out.

The important thing is to remember that it can be done not exactly how to do it. That's what Google is for.

A co-worker of mine teaches calc at a night class. He didn't remember it either.

Now i understand why you were one of the people writing your own MSII code and testing the new beta.

Stats 330 is probably the easiest class I have this semester. I'm retaking calc II next semester, and I decided to do a business minor (bumps my major's avg starting salary to 65k), so i'm taking econ and marketing too.

Not bad for a starting salary. My starting salary for going to grad school was $40k plus $27k in housing, food, and other allowances. Who says the government doesn't pay well? Some of the grad students are making bank though compared to me. $63K + $30K Allowances (some are making more than that...) $93K to go to grad school is pretty freaking sweet, especially compared to my $67k

I frickin aced stats, blew through it w/o an issue. Deborah, a math major who is capable of all sorts of advanced calculus I can't understand, can't handle stats to save her life.

Calculus 2 Final Exam Friday... Scored a D on my last test and the final is on the same material, so I gotta figure this stuff out. I'm barely hanging on to a C average and I have to have a C or better or I'll be taking it next semester. Wooo.
