Calculus is one of the grandest achievements of human thought, explaining everything from planetary orbits to the optimal size of a city to the periodicity of a heartbeat. This brisk course covers the core ideas of single-variable Calculus with emphases on conceptual understanding and applications. The course is ideal for students beginning in the engineering, physical, and social sciences. Distinguishing features of the course include: 1) the introduction and use of Taylor series and approximations from the beginning; 2) a novel synthesis of discrete and continuous forms of Calculus; 3) an emphasis on the conceptual over the computational; and 4) a clear, dynamic, unified approach.

Meilleurs avis pour CALCULUS: SINGLE VARIABLE PART 2 - DIFFERENTIATION
Explanations are crystal clear, with a strong emphasis on developing a deep conceptual understanding of math rather than "calculating derivatives"
It's an awesome lecture. I strongly recommend to take the course in order to improve your understanding of Calculus, especially differentiation.
some interesting applications of even the most basics of calculus, also finally a way to truely understand the second derivate test
Highly application oriented course. Better to have strong grounding in theory and principles before starting.
