Blogon the Blog #8

The pre-test was hard. This unit is pretty tough! But once you get around how to find the integral, which pretty much is the hard part, then it becomes mechanical from there. I think my biggest problem is deciding whether or not the solid volume produce spinning a function around the y or x axis is going to be a cylindrical shells, or round discs.. when the y or x axis you're spinning it about is translated units. But I think by doing more problems like these, I could surely get it. I've been focusing my attention to another subject that is of much greater value to me and resulted in less time for calculus. After spring break, everything should be fine.
