Calculus I, Summer 2007
This course is an introduction to differential and integral calculus. It begins with a short review of basic concepts surrounding the notion of a function. Then it introduces the important concept of the limit of a function, and use it to study continuity and the tangent problem. The solution to the tangent problem leads to the study of derivatives and their applications. Then it considers the area problem and its solution, the definite integral. The course concludes with the calculus of element
