That's pretty funny! Making learning fun, I'll get behind that.
If only they would focus on politics like that whole loli banning debate.

This is cool. As an engineering student in college, I dont have a huge problem with calculus anymore but when I first started dealing with it in high school I wasnt a huge fan, and a I certainly know a lot of people who really could have used the help.

I wonder what level calculus it will be?

Hah, that's pretty interesting. I might actually have to get the statistics one.

THIS.

I NEED THIS. THIS IS AWESOME. It's worked in Japan, why not here? Especially since the whole "KIDS DON'T READ THESE DAYS LOL" (although I suppose most kids aren't reading up on calculus. Wonder if I can force my little brother to get this.)

I may pick up the book on statistics. Math education has always bored me; maybe this will be the perfect way to spice it up a bit.

Whoa, thats interesting, maybe I'll look into getting one of those just for the heck of it. Who knows maybe with something like this I'll actually figure statitics out. . .

Not that I have any math courses any longer, but this might actually make it interesting.

I really need the Stats one. Somehow I made it as a graduate-level engineer without ever taking that subject. Confused

Like others mentioned, I hope they do fact-checking because there might be differences in terminology in the way it's taught in Japan versus in America.

This reminds me of Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics, a required book in our univ film course. Laughing

Why does it read left-to-right?

Heh, maybe there's no significant artistic merit to keeping it right-to-left, so they flipped it. Laughing

(Its main purpose is instructional, after all.)

The graphic novel format may be able to do many things, but helping me get through the calculus needed for my quantum mechanics courses is perhaps not one of them.
