Ќазвание: All You Wanted to Know about Mathematics but Were Afraid to Ask - Mathematics for Science Students. Volume 1
јвтор: Lyons L.
A few years ago, I was one of the examiners for the first year mathematics examination for Oxford undergraduates studying physics or engineering. I wanted to set a question which started as follows: 'A friend of yours has just been to his first lecture on the vector operators grad, div and curl. What would you tell him to help him appreciate their significance?' One of the other examiners, a mathematician, commented that this was a silly question since the students merely had to write down the standard definitions, as these determined all their properties.
