The Calm Before The Storm

The steady flow of emails from the students in the Calculus Circus has slowed. We're up to 180 so far this semester. Only two so far today.

The first exam is tomorrow.

Perhaps they think that they have mastered limits and the definition of the derivative? Maybe they're in denial?

Do you think that I'm going to get a flood of email in the middle of the night as they panic?

No matter, I'm enjoying the calm. I'm hiding from my office and trying to write another chapter of my book. I need to write six more chapters and then deal with front-matter and back-matter.
