At my school, most out of high school students found integral calculus a lot harder than differential calculus. Not good at math shirt. If you are finding integral calculus easier I’d say that’s a good a sign that you can keep working and learning and get to a spot where you’ll be fine with the necessary math. And basically lived in my school’s tutoring room until I knocked out the core math. I repeatedly watched PatrickJMT, Khan Academy, and others until the topic at hand sunk in. And then things got really difficult. Learning math was a relative cakewalk compared to the upper-level engineering courses. This had a lot to do with the fact that I transferred from a community college to a top ten engineering school

I hate not being the best, and I was just average there, at best. Not good at math shirt. I stopped going out (didn’t have the time), started smoking and drinking again, and became depressed. But I stuck with it and somehow managed to graduate with honors. A month ago, I started working for a big company making significantly above the national average starting salary for mechanical engineers. I’ll never want for a good job again. You too can do this. I meant that I dropped out of high school at 17, lived life for a while, and re-enrolled in college at 29. Sorry, that wasn’t very clear. I chose mechanical engineering for a variety of reasons, but the most important one was that I wanted to earn a good salary with bachelors. I was already getting old and it seemed like engineering, in general, seemed like the degree with the best return on investment in both time and money.

When I make up my mind to do something, I’m going to do it no matter how difficult it is. Not good at math shirt. I never seriously considered quitting, but my god that degree was incredibly difficult to get. A lesser me would have quit. Try not to get too bogged down with how your scores in Calculus will affect your ME degree. Calculus makes things really neat and helpful for teaching some concepts, but if you have the gist and the basics down and can understand the lingo; then that’s all you really need. In my opinion, linear algebra and discrete mathematics are probably more telling of actual engineering ability. Algebra is maybe more important than calculus. If you can do at the least the 20 or so main derivatives, forward and back, and can handle algebra very well, like very well, like you are a tutor for others and breeze through any algebra, then your Meche classes will still be a gigantic challenge, but you can do it. Something like 50% of hard-working students can’t cut it in a Meche degree due to the intensity of the math, programming, and overall stacked schedule.

So, I at 17 years old dropped out of high school and told myself “I’m never gonna do calculus.” Not good at math shirt. Years later I started and I barely passed integral differential and multivariable calculus. Differential eq I also squeaked by. But the main thing was I knew what to do when to do it for most parts of later courses. Most courses you won’t have to do integration by parts comics or the “harder” topics in integral calculus. And in an industry (I’m only 6 months into right now). You may never use it (I haven’t yet) but you need to know what’s going on principally. Statics you might use multivariable calculus maybe at the end, Fluids is differential and multivariable calculus. When it comes to Navier Stokes eqq depending on your professor.
