@ThomasAndrews I go to a Charter school, so not really... And EuYu, I will look into it ^^

Ah, true, I just want to keep myself going in a general direction, making sure I don't completely miss something ^^

comment A High-School Freshman's Journey Into Calculus
Well, I am on a budget of absolutely nothing. I have just a little bit of money at my disposal at the moment, all of which is going towards a new computer to do large calculations on... So I would think to turn to MIT Open Courseware, but I would rather be able to be spontaneous and jump around ;)

I actually very much prefer learning at my own pace and on my own, jumping to one thing from the next. Although this strategy will not be a complete learning solution, but it seems it will be the most fun for me, to keep me interested ;)

Is there by chance a free equivalent to that? How about CK-12 Calculus?

With the $2^{x}$, I believe that $d/dx 2^{x}$ would equal $2x^{x-1}$ (I am not good in TeX, how do you make the derivative thingy?)

comment Complex Numbers in Fractal Algorithms
Im no expert, but from what I see in the WP article, a Mandelbrot set would be quite hard for a high-schooler (who hasn't "officially" passed Geometry, but I have dabbled with derivatives ^^) to iterate...

Alright, that makes sense, and doesnt seem TOO hard to iterate :) Thank you again Manish ^^

comment In Need of Ideas for a Small Fractal Program
Well, I have created a tiny Ruby program that, given the original size of the rectangle and the "decay factor", finds the first 10 iterations of a rectangle getting smaller and smaller...

Skimming, I got as far as "complex quadratic polynomials" o.O

haha, ummmm, yes, well, not a solid understanding, but some... and as I said, I was blessed with the gift off being able to learn quickly

comment Simplifying a Multi-Variate Fraction
Yes, that is what was going through my head, and at least somewhat similar to what my friend was trying to explain to me. Thank you!

Wait! Least Common Multiple? If that is correct, then yes

comment Plotting the domain of a Function on a Number Line
So in this case I would fill in the line, correct?

comment Plotting the domain of a Function on a Number Line
And anyways, do I just put the dot on the number that will return a real number?

comment Plotting the domain of a Function on a Number Line
Remember, the function includes a square root...

The site this is on I have to login to, so going to this site won't work. And I cannot make a link, either...
