When I was a small kid, my dad would play baseball with me. He’d pitch the ball and try to hit my bat with the ball so I could think I was actually hitting the ball.
Well, fast forward 50 years to my vector calculus final exam; we are covering the “big integral” theorems.
Yeah, I know; it is but, let’s just say that we aren’t up to differential forms as yet. 🙂
And so I am giving them classical Green’s Theorem, Stokes’ Theorem and Divergence Theorem problems….and everything in sight basically boils down to integrating a constant over a rectangle, box, sphere, ball or disk.
I am hitting their bats with the ball; I wonder how many will notice. 🙂
