I'm a math/programming teacher and freelance programmer. My first language was Scheme, and I have a major soft spot for functional programming. I read SICP every year and do all of the exercises (so I'm pretty good at hw-type problems.)

As stated in the question, I am aware of this. This does not yield a numeric answer, simply the rate of change in terms of the other variables.
