Three ways to compute a straight line.
In High School Algebra, we learned that the equation for a straight line was given by the expression y = mx + (1) where m is the slope (the rise over th

Taylor's Theorem with Remainder
Let f (x) be a function defined for x in an interval containing the point a. If the first derivative of f is also defined and continuous on this interval, then the Fun

The Potential Energy behind a Dam
Assume that we have a small dam and that we are interested in the amount of energy stored in the water behind the dam. Call the part of the dam that contacts the wate
