I am a high-school freshman who is looking at a career in programming or maybe mathematics research. I am an ex-java Rubyist, who has recently decided to move up onto C++. W00T!

I am very into math. I have been dabbling my way into calculus, and I love it :)

 Nov11 comment Composition of Identical Functions Another question, how would the last two be represented and/or transformed into a formula or equation? Nov8 comment Composition of Identical Functions I would the Fourier Transform help? If I recall correctly (note that I am 15), the Fourier Transform is just converting a function from a time to a frequency domain. Where would this be applicable to my situation? Oct28 comment Peculiarities about Finding Absolute Values Oops. This is what happens to late night breakthroughs. Dec11 comment How many classification of mathematical topics exists? That's Awesome, +1 Nov19 comment Repeating Square Root Simplification And then anything to a negative power is something like $\frac{1}{n^{x+1}}$, where $x$ is negative, right? Nov19 comment Repeating Square Root Simplification Thank you, I appreciate that :) Nov19 comment Repeating Square Root Simplification Also, I have no clue what to tag this with... Any ideas? Nov16 comment Careers in Math First off, I don't just do math in my classes and call it good. I go to a school where self-studying is encouraged, and I take advantage of that. I am taking myself through calculus. This last Sunday at church, I was able to find the derivative of the equation of a circle in my head ($div{-x,y}) Secondly, I just love how it all flows together, how there are so many patterns that occur throughout, and that there are so many in the world that are yet to be "solved" Nov16 comment Careers in Math But in my mind it seems that to be a mathematician, you spend your life at home, next to a whiteboard, doing math. I am wondering if a job exists so that I could get paid (so I can eat) for working on math. Nov16 comment Careers in Math Thanks ;) totally missed that Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero Ah, that makes sense, thanks ^v^ Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero @ShaunAult Oh, trust me, I can tread water in calc. In church today, I was working the derivative of a circle equation. Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero @ShaunAult so which is commonly accepted? And what in the heck does "indeterminate form" mean? I am a highschool freshman ^^ Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero @ShaunAult Then what kind of number is it? o.O Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero For 1), so some mathematician once said that$a^{0} = 1$? For 2), Which is then correct? Or is it both? For 3), I can kinda wrap my head around that, but I have yet to come across that particular way of denoting a range... Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero @ThomasAndrews Is there a mathematical way to prove so? Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero @ShaunAult Ah, true. But what if I set n to n-1, and set total to x? Wouldn't that throw your claim out the window? Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero Really? I have always been told that it is undefined... Nov11 comment Numbers to the Power of Zero Umm, I mean$n$does not equal$0\$, programming habit -_- And I am not good in TeX Nov8 comment A High-School Freshman's Journey Into Calculus @ThomasAndrews I go to a Charter school, so not really... And EuYu, I will look into it ^^
