I realized something,
after reading ATS for a long time,
and finally deciding to try a few posts.
If the world ended and everyone died except people
who know calculus 4 ... I have to admit. I'd be ok with that.

I find that sorta funny.
I of course would also be dead, mind you...Calc4 is something I reckoned I would never need..and in considering a world where only calc4 people existed, I dont think I would like such a doomed world anyhow...cause there would be no women


what...girls suck at math...just saying.. -ducks and covers-

The female astronomers
I know also teach, physics and above.
It's not too late to sign up for a class, heh.

I don't know. My initial thought was, heck yeah, I'd be cool with that, just give me a few weeks to refresh my memory on that stuff and I'll be ready for the test. Then I started to wonder .. in a world without those that are unwilling to learn and thus better themselves, who would fold my burrito at Taco Bell tomorrow? Who would milk the cows in the morning for me? You should know I like milk in the morning. Who would do all those things that we would be over qualified to do for ourselves? Hum?

Not only
would they be able to milk
their own cows, they could really
colonize space inside of one generation.

I think I would win.
I can make a saddle, a reasonable working harness, read how to tan the leather, have thge tanning drums lying around to eventually use for compost, and have a strong stomach, can convince every beast I have met so far to do it my way from horse hound. I can spin raw wool into yarn, shoot straight, dig a well, plant a garden, can the produce, Plus my pond goldies like me.

You forgot to mention
that you know calculus 4.
And if you don't, with all your talent
you must be stopping yourself, so I'm still ok with it.

What is Calc 4?

Is that an american term? For engineering you only do up to mulitvariable ODE's, stokes & green theoroms, triple integrals etc. etc. and they called it Calculus! man calc 4 must be crazy if there are levels to it and here I was thinking it cant get much harder lol.

Dude Ive gotta say with the types of chicks that would be left.....If any....Id not be looking forwards to repopulating

so count me out.

Polarwarrior,
Congradulations.
Sounds like you qualify already.

Done.
As you wish.
By the way, wasn't
the same said of literate people
back in the medieval period of European history?

Man, I only got to calc 3.

But, uh, seriously, what?

Maybe
you are already there.
Can you calculate the circumference of an ellipse?

Given what information? The major and minor axes? (Did I miss some "semi"s in there?) I think so. Might have to get out one of the books, though.

Those are the right questions.
If you can work it from a book, then well enough.
You would survive as far as I'm concerned. Also I don't think
it's a coincidence that I have found your posts in the past to be inteligent.
As to the _why_ the circumference of an ellipsis is the foundation of calendar tech
and orbital mathematics. The foundation of Keplers discoveries, and that was a long time ago.
