The academic baboon who came up with the expression 'instantaneous rate' should have been shot. The following applet exposes this false notion, and explains convincingly that differentials are not infinitesimal in any shape or form.


The New Calculus (http://thenewcalculus.weebly.com) uses only well-defined differentials. While it takes an applied mathematician a lifetime to master differential equations using mainstream calculus, it takes only a few months with the New Calculus. What's more, is that there are new theorems and methods which are far more effective than the copious recipes one is usually taught in applied mathematics courses.

Next time you hear the phrase 'instantaneous rate', you will know that it is nonsense.

Comments are NOT welcome. This comment is provided in the interests of public education; and to eradicate ignorance and stupidity from mainstream mathematics.
