I like trying to prove Fermat's Last Theorem:

On lighter days, I like looking for happy, prime numbers.

I've never been much of a math guy, but I do like derivatives (particularly now that I can do the power rule, product rule, chain rule, and quotient rule. Before that was just painful.)

On another note: Joe, do you think you could help me with an equation I've been trying to work with? I'll post up a topic.

It's been a long time since I've used Calculus, but I'll give it a shot. Sure!
