If I made "Calculus for Idiots by Idiots", would anyone watch it?

I’ve been batting this idea around for a while.

Only if I was taking calculus and thought it would help me out. The by idiots thing might throw me off. But then, it could be the reason I watch it too.

How about putting calculus in the context of something usable?

Dominate your enemies in love and war – using what else? Calculus.

If you mean to put it online just let the homeschoolers know it’s there. You’ll get lots of traffic from all the high school homeschoolers.

My ultimate goal is to have it be there for folks who are having trouble with the material. It didn’t take me 5 minutes to get out of that speeding ticket. I wouldn’t go so far as to get a mate using calculus, it would prolly scare her away.

I used the Idiots thing like “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to X”.

No, I would watch it anyway.

I’d love to hear somebody just talk about using calculus by somebody who uses it to solve problems in their work.

Why would you need to know calculus? What can you do with a little calc knowledge? What can you do with a lot? What are the basics? How do you explain it to a child? What did they do before calculus? How long does it take to learn it / master it? etc.

I guess I’ll get to work on it.

Let me know when it’s done I’ll pass it on to the High School Homeschoolers.

Hopefully soon, I want to shoot it in HD, and I know 2 people with HD cameras.
