What is calculus? In this video, we give you a quick overview of calculus and introduce the limit, derivative and integral.

We begin with the question “Who invented Calculus?” Next, we talk about the two main tools you’ll study: derivatives and integrals. To understand both of these you’ll first learn about limits. After you learn how to compute the derivative and integral for basic functions and apply them to real-world problems, you’ll move up to higher dimensions and study things like “partial derivatives” and “multiple integrals.”

The force of push and pull of matter.

Very very good video!

very good explanation. thanks..

This is really awesome..!!

Actually, Archimedes used a summation technique to find the volume and area of the sphere, cylinder and cone, anticipating the same developments in calculus by 2000 years. His Codex A and C manuscripts were lost, and his Codex B was almost erased and written over by monks. Codex B was re-discovered in 1906 in Istanbul (in the Hagia Sophia Library)and portions were analyzed, translated and published. Archimedes proofs use the same techniques for integration taught today.

Those graphs pleased me massively. I can't say why, I can only say that they do.

Thanks! it gave me a good insight of calculus.

Some people are just good at math period & other people suck at it I'm not sure if it's because of the brain not getting it or they simply find it boring, people are not created equal who ever said that is the biggest ass.

Excellent. Thank you very much.

whats a function and what do those lines mean in the graph?

I understood nothing…

Too easy xd

I need to re study about calculus..

I didn’t know Alberto from wwe is math legend.

Im just a gcse student and he made me understad calculus thats mad

Excellent intro.

Please make more videos

Awesome thanks

charming…and i have easily understand

Your lectures are so easy to understand. Please post more videos for calculus and vectors.

Actually a new analysis of a set of ancient clay tablets has revealed that ancient astronomers of Babylonia used advanced geometrical methods to calculate the position of Jupiter ie calculus – a conceptual leap that was previously thought to have occurred in 14 th century Europe. Ha ha ha …u need to update your information m8..

Before: Didn’t even know what Calculus was.

After: Full book of Calculus.

That’s me when I watched this video…

how does he finds the slope

I wish you were my calculus teacher.

Calculus looks really interesting!

This is an absolutely fantastic video. Thank you so much
