He uploads videos on Youtube teaching math. Any thoughts?

Helped me with Calc 1 and hopefully, with Calc2. Would recommend.

His lectures follow along with Stewart's calculus and are numbered as such. He's great, because the actual textbook is too lazy to give you many of the proofs, most comically Fubini's theorem in Calc 3, where stewart says its too difficult to include in the text.

Leonard's lectures are very long because of this, but his point is to never give you plug and chug garbage.

This is technically nonsense because
>teaching without a test
just isn't a thing and only snake oil salesmen pretend otherwise
if there is no test, then any symbolic certificate of having contacted the teaching by studying the subject is meaningless
in fact I suspect there is no funding set up to find or rent or organize such testing
to a certain extent, a school is about funding a testing process, and that testing process is connected to teaching and the integrity of the school
you wouldn't want a dishonest racist school that only gives A's to white kids to survive
if I were running a school, I'd force the negroes to all be model students for the others, demanding their parents invest time and energy in their children's education, and in so doing making it clear that the job of the school is to insert itself into the life of the child just as the Roman Empire inserted itself into African history two thousand years ago by adding Egypt, a priceless interstellar jewel, to her crown

Hilarious that this isn't included in Stewart, the standard text at most universities in the English speaking world...

I hope this is bait. How tf is the proof of Fubini's theorem at all helpful to students in Calc 3? Most of them don't even remember what a summation symbol is, and they never need to use these types of arguments or techniques anywhere else in the rest of the class. Fubini's theorem proof in Calc 3 is a straight up waste of time. Any calc class should be devoid of almost all proofs except for some short derivations and applications of theorems.

Interesting, it's almost like there's an entirely other semester or two of the math major dedicated to proving the results in calculus or something.

>> No.14868990

>>14868956
Maybe if you're an engineering student, at that point its fair. But for math majors in small universities that don't have separate versions of calculus 3 for engineers and math majors? Its a disservice. Ideally the course should not only cover proofs for Fubini's, but cover Kuratowski-Ulam, along with strong versions independent of ZFC.

>easily learn
You're overestimating the capabilities of these little retards. Not one single student at that level is going to give half a shit about the proofs. You're wasting your own time and theirs by teaching them.

>separate versions of calculus 3 for engineers and math majors
Let's say there was a distinction, but that the math track class didn't assume knowledge of proofs/basic set theory, then your students will still be mostly lost and not caring about the proofs. If it was a proofs focused class later on in the major, do you really think the text would be Stewart? Stewart is mostly used in community college. Please tell me you don't actually think Fubini's theorem proof would be helpful to a community college student...

Intro to proofs is a first semester course for math majors.

>If it was a proofs focused class later on in the major, do you really think the text would be Stewart?
Of course not, but that isn't the argument.
There are calculus series in small universities indented for all engineering and math majors, that do both a disservice.

>Stewart is mostly used in community college. Please tell me you don't actually think Fubini's theorem proof would be helpful to a community college student...
Many people go to community College to save money prior to transferring to a big state school program. Many state schools also utilize stewart for calculus 1 through 3.
