Calculus is,

without a doubt

the greatest thing

to come about!

My curves are parameterized,

they are sinuous,

differentiable,

and continious.

Surfaces are smooth,

and some have tangent planes.

Finding potential functions

requires the use of brains.

Gradient of the potential,

a vector field.

Give a point, get a vector,

my, what power they wield!

Extremes

can be high or low,

differentiate twice, take determinants,

oh what a blow!

Circle, ellipse,

hyperbola, sphere.

The equations are simple,

but time for another beer.

Yes, I'm taking a vector calculus course in the middle of the summer.
