Hello again and welcome to AP Calculus. Our previous narrator is not appearing and currently we have no idea of his whereabouts, any tips or sightings would be helpful but that's besides the point, the point is that I will be taking over the narratorial duties of him.
As he stated last Sunday, the contestants did indeed have a test that many people felt like they did well on and moved on from the topics of curve sketching and mean values to more devilish ideas such as optimization.
Now optimization is one of the processes in which calculus is useful as we use advanced algebraic manipulations to find out solutions such as the most optimal size of an oil canister to maximizing rectangles. But the only downside, it is very difficult to see and observe and as such takes a very long time to do and often incorrectly done.
And of course, as boring as it may be. That is all our contestants did under the watchful eye of Cresswell. But by the end of the week he found them suitably ready for a quiz over it, sadly they were not so Mr Cresswell simply had to extend the test time to the next monday. Of course you cannot blame the students, these concepts they are discussing are very hard.
And that's it for this weeks edition of AP calculus, tune in next time for a more exciting episode
