This video playlist includes examples of some math skills and techniques that are helpful to have in your tool belt before diving into calculus.
The following videos review exponential and logarithmic functions and their applications.
These two playlists introduce the concepts of limit and show some examples of finding limits from graphs and of limits of expressions of functions. The video below shows the solution to a problem with x approaching infinity.
These video tutorials demonstrate the definition of derivative and many of the rules for derivatives including the product rule, the quotient rule, and the chain rule among others. Below is another product rule example. The video below includes a proof of the quotient rule, for those of you interested in digging a little […]
This playlist includes examples of the kinds of things we can do with derivatives, including determining the shape of the graph of a function and locating maximum and minimum values of a function. We also explore some applied optimization applications.
One of the applications of derivatives in business is marginal analysis. These videos introduce the important concepts.
This videos introduce integration and some of the common rules for computing integrals.
These two playlists of videos cover applications of integration including calculating consumer’s and producer’s surplus and other traditional applications.
Fans of the The Big Bang Theory will recall this wonderful sequence from Sheldon on why the number 73 is the perfect number … “The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror (37) is the 12th and its mirror (21) is the product of multiplying 7 and 3. … […]
