I am starting a Calculus class on Thursday at a CUNY school. When I decided on enrolling, I thought why have I overlooked this great NY resource for a decade? I could have been taking inexpensive classes for years. Then I went through the bureaucracy of trying to enroll. I am almost there, after 1 trip to NYU health services, 1 trip to the Baruch registrar, 2 trips to Baruch admissions and several emails and calls. Now I am watching Good Will Hunting and I’m wondering what was I thinking? I aint no super genius. In fact looking over my high school transcript, math classes were the only classes I got Bs in. Well except for gym class once, but I swear that was just ill will and not my nerddom. I was a fit nerd. Anyways, I just looked up the syllabus and apparently there is homework before the class starts on Thursday and I can’t even understand the homework assignment:
