Calculus Courses

 We have two Calculus Courses available Calculus in Everyday Life and Calculus Revisited.

The intention of Calculus in Everyday Life is to relate the basic concepts of Calculus to ideas we encounter in our lives every day. We especially invite teachers to read these  "lessons" as they will, in turn, help you internalize how important a role basic arithmetic, algebra and geometry play in helping students be adequately prepared to take topics in higher mathematics of which calculus is one example. In addition, by the time you are finished you will have a deep understanding of limits, derivatives and integrals - the heart and soul of Calculus.


The second course is called "Calculus Revisited" and is intended for those with a strong algebra background.  It has received rave reviews and we encourage you to give it a look. Herb Gross' Classic Course Calculus Revisited Part 1 is available on YouTube as part of the MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) material. Click here to view Calculus Revisited, part 1 at the OCW site.
Part 2 of the course is a study of the calculus of  functions of several variables (vector arithmetic and vector calculus) and Part 3 covers topics in Complex Variables, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra.  At this time, Parts 2 and 3 are not available on OCW and we have received many requests to make them available through this website. For all those who have asked for parts 2 and 3 to be made available - good news - we are in the process of uploading the videos and supplementary text.

We wish to acknowledge the support of the Gabriella and Paul Rosenbaum Foundation in helping us develop the content on this website.  Without the support of the Foundation and its president, Madge Goldman, much of the material that will be posted here would not have existed.
