Is that Mark Zuckerberg lurking in the background?
Mark Zuckerberg is always lurking in every background. Facebook installed an algorithm for that the other month.
Ages ago, SolarTungsten posted a link to a PDF of "Calculus Made Easy"; it's very much worth looking at if you're not feeling comfortable with calculus:
... or here's the direct link, because who knows how long PoE-News links will still work:

Is he actually teaching or is this more about a parent showing off his super smart kid to make us all feel stoooopid?

This little fucker is the summation of everything punchable about children. I'm not saying I was any better. I probably sounded the same way while droning on about robots that change into dinosaurs that change into smaller robots. I'm just trying to say that I want to commit child abuse a lot.
I hope someday someone finds a way to use all that bitter edgyness as actionable evidence against you in a court of law
I feel like I need to diagram my original post in a belabored fashion on a window before it's gotten. Lacking that, I'll just do it here.
FIRST SENTENCE: A intentionally inflammatory statement. The setup for the joke.
SECOND SENTENCE: Admittance that I do not consider myself better than the subject of my hate. By shifting focus from the subject to the speaker, the joke now becomes about speaker and not subject.
THIRD SENTENCE: Expands on previous sentence, allowing the reader to discover that, at my age, I was not nearly as smart and would have spoken in a impassioned and annoying fashion about something useless, like cartoons about robots. While taking the wind out of my own sails I pay the subject of the video a backhanded compliment. He is smarter than I am, but still obnoxious.
FOURTH SENTENCE: An irreverent acknowledgement that the inflammatory tone of the previous statements was both extreme and unwarranted.
ADDENDUM: The single star rating does not mean I want to physically abuse children. It is a summation of my feelings that the video was not entertaining.
ADDENDUM 2: When you hope that I will be some day brought to court and a post I made on the internet will be used as evidence against me, you are hoping that I have or will hurt children. That's a retarded as hell thing to say.
We made it to the end of the joke, everyone!!! The best part; we all made it there together.
I don't care if he's brilliant or autistic. I did way too much of this garbage in college, and eventually found that you don't use calculus as a programmer. Hell, the very most advanced math that I do is statistical analysis (pick a distribution table and plug in the numbers) and some SQL code (advanced set theory), both of which are almost simple in comparison. I would be interested if he had some kind of point, other than showing off the fact that he understands calculus. I understand it too, but nobody seems to be impressed by me.
Well, I was 12, and yes, I've simulated basic equations in a VB graphing class. Again, nobody's impressed. I tend to think that's because I, like this young man, have no particular point to make. Who cares if I can do these things, if I'm not doing something interesting with them?
My point was that your statement "you don't use calculus as a programmer" was inaccurate and stupid. I was hoping you'd close the loop on your own, but here we are.
My kid could kick this kids ass.
I hope your IRL son goes to jail and is sodomized in jail, because you said that. Well, TTYL!
He needs to focus on some real world work, like inventing and organizing extremely long lists of Pokemon or scale minecraft models of boats or something.
Best part of the video? Super smart and successful people (no doubt) who are super pissed that a child is showing off his math skills. Honestly, you guys should try giving your inferiority complexes a day off.
Guilty as charged. It's just that I hate children, you see ...
I suck at math and hate doing it. I've managed to transition from the college to adult professional world successfully without ever having to do anything remotely similar to calculus.
But who cares? This kid is awesome. Five stars.
Who do you think you are kid, understanding this thing that I don't? I'm an adult and you're a kid! I hate you now, for reasons I will never examine.
Nice American suburb
Holy fuck this was boring. He's not really teaching integrals, he's just doing some integrals.
Five for the evil lurking off camera.
Just came across this and realized it was the same kid. Sorry about the terrible writing, but it's still neat.
