What is Calculus? (Mathematics)

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.”
