DAMMIT CALCULUS III


(sung to The Police’s “Message in a Bottle”)

Takin’ calculus as a summer class, oh
Kinda nervous, too; afraid it’ll kick my ass, oh
Since it’s the last class in the calc trio
But it turns out it’s just calc I in R3, oh

I was scared I would not understand
I was scared I would not understand
But so far it’s a bunch of
So far, it’s just a bunch of
So far, it’s just a bunch of
Matrix operations, yeah
Matrix operations, yeah

A week has passed and I’ve learned so much
This stuff is fascinating to me
The actual math is quite easy
I can work out tangent planes but can’t draw them in 3-D

All my hyperboloids look like crap
All my hyperboloids look like crap
I hope they don’t ask me to
I hope they don’t ask me to
I hope they don’t ask me to
Draw one on a test, yeah
Draw one on a test, yeah
Oh, draw one on a test, yeah
Draw one on a test, yeah

Went to class today, I don’t believe what I saw
Many gradients and partials written on the wall
This seems simpler than calc II, I can tell
The hardest thing for me is writing that little del

Partial derivatives give me joy
Partial derivatives give me joy
I wish that this class wasn’t
I wish that this class wasn’t
I wish that this class wasn’t
Over in six weeks, yeah
Over in six weeks, yeah
Over in six weeks, oh
Over in six weeks, yeah

Calculate a vector length!
Calculate a vector length!
Calculate a vector length!
Calculate a vector length!

Etc.

Seriously though, I love this class.
