This is the Mathematics Club. The primary goals of this club are as follows.
1. To indulge in the joys of solving difficult and interesting problems.
2. To help other people with their math problems, because most people never get past the sucky part of math, and miss out on the cool stuff.
3. To present an image of math beyond the sucky stuff, discussions of fractal geometry, complex numbers and quaternions are encouraged.

Also, because Newgrounds has an international audience, please use the notation that is commonly used in the United States if possible. (1 000 000 = 1 million, 1 000 000 000 = 1 billion)

I have a copy of Mathematica, so IF I can get it working, I can pretty much evaluate even the most difficult problems.

This also applies to anyone who is interesting in any type of quantitative analysis. This club will deal with most areas that depend on mathematical analysis, and we will be glad to assist anyone if we can do so.

Some helpful/interesting links:
Recreational Mathematics.
Website that deals with most mathematical issues.
Help in other scientific areas.
Solve any integral with this website.

Like how?
A=pi(r^2)
x^2+y^2=r^2

Im not sure what youre asking? What class are you in that youre doing this for? Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus?

I think he means... He wants you to do the work for him and/or... He doesn't know how to take a pencil and draw them.

Okay, new rule: if you need help with math, send me an e-mail or an instant message. It's faster and reduces spam.

Also, for all you flash people, if you need help with algorithms or physics, feel free to ask questions here.

Did you know that Albert Einstein failed mathematics? I'm currently learning Calculus at Columbus State Community College , in Columbus, Ohio, and I would like to join.

Well, I'd prefer, just to reduce clutter, if you'd send me an e-mail or send me an instant message. I don't know about anyone else, if they mind being pestered with math questions, but I don't mind. This weekend I'm going to be volunteering, so I probably can't answer any questions.

Basically, I'm thinking that membership works as follows:
If you want to be a member, put something in your sig that relates to math. That way you will be identifiable as someone who is capable of offering help, and not just another person who needs help.

I dont mind answering questions on here, but in order to do so, the question must be written and the objective must be clearly spelled out otherwise I may not know what youre asking due to the fact that certain teachers use different vocabularies when describing certain things.

I enjoy math, though it does get tedious at times. I would like to join.

I'm currently taking a Pre-calculus class at my high school.

Well, in addition to Dr. A and myself, it looks as if there are two more "members" here. At this point in time, what we really ought to do is continue posting here at least two or three times per day so that it gains a bit (keyword: bit) of popularity, and doesnt die. Also, RugbyMacDaddy made the sig that im posting below. If any of you would like one with your name on it, he said that he would make one. Also, if it is possible, please put a link in your signature for here.

What was it that gave you trouble in Calc 2? Let me guess, sequence and series?

I have a foundation level in maths, so I'll join. (I'm not actually sure what a foundation level is; but I got a certificate for it, so it must be good.) I'm good at algebra, but suck at multiplication (odd mix).

Well, I could really help a few of you out. How about this: you guys can answer the questions up until calculus, and if anyone asks something at or past calculus ill help them out.

And Dr. what the fuck. Post in your fucking thread! Think of a topic that we can rant about.

No. Im good at math, and horrible with computers. I do know how they calculate certain things though.

On an Intel 32-bit CPU:
0 - 1 = 4294967295
WHY DOES IT DO THAT!!!??

No fucking clue.

You know, I could probably come in handy if you were to write up something with mathematical foundations because I can do a lot of the things in general form. And did they really ban you for that shit? I remember the whole pissing contest. If so, for how long?

You know whats ironic? The fact that you, Dr. A, and myself are conservative (although Dr. A is a bit more moderate). I dont know, it just seems ironic to me.
