So what am I up to these days?

I’ve been trying to determine the critical points of unconstrained nonlinear multivariate functions for my operations reseach midterm.   Why do you ask?

  1. Ick. As a student currently enrolled in college algebra/functions…I can **kinda sorta** understand the ick factor of this. Functions…double ick…nonlinear…triple ick.

    Remember that this too, will pass! 🙂

  2. Help a sister out then 🙂 Sigh. I’ve got to find a computer lab on campus with a specific software package tomorrow morning to finish up. I’m getting stuck on the pure math aspects of this — it’s been too long since I did derivatives!

  3. PJ, that would be funny — except that I WAS dreaming about it last night! Even asleep, I can’t get away from data analysis. I am counting down until 4:30 today when I can finally turn this thing in and be done with it.

  4. Okay, I don’t really do that before breakfast each morning. (I think you may know that ;-)) But I’m really, really impressed that you can. And I’m totally cheering you on. Go Sharah, go!

  5. I won’t know what my score is for a few weeks (spring break is next week!), but I did find out that my answers were similar to everyone elses’. Apparently we all struggled with similar issues. Also, we all spent similar amounts of time — I think the average was around 20 hours of work.

    One person suggested that he go ahead and give us the final so that we could start working on it now, in hopes that we would actually finish by the end of the semester.
