Hi. My name is Pablo. I created this site to help people like you learn calculus. I like to focus on the intuitive understanding of the concepts, so my explanations are not always formal or tidy.
Whether you are at high-school or college taking a calculus course, preparing for a standarized test, or self-studying calculus just for fun, you can tremendously benefit from this website. You can use it to complement your textbook or course material, or use it as your main learning resource.
Learning calculus takes some time and dedication, but I hope I can help in making it a rewarding and fun experience.
Where to Begin?
This site covers all the topics in a first calculus course, and it is expanding to cover topics beyond that. If you are already taking a course in school, you can immediately visit the topics you need some reinforcing in. To find what you need you can use the search function located at the left column of this and every page.
If you have the time, I recommend you to visit even the pages about topics you think you understood well. The intuitive approach that I use may help you gain another perspective, or reinforce an idea that you aren't very sure about.
If you have no clue about where to start, follow the sequece:
Functions: This topic is not usually covered in a calculus course. Understanding functions and knowing how to deal with them is essential for a real understanding of calculus, though.
Limits: This is the topic most calculus courses start with. The idea of limits is the basic underlying theme in calculus. Spend some time on these pages if you want to deeply understand this idea.
Derivatives: The derivative, together with the integral, form the inseparable duo in calculus. The derivative can be seen as a generalized slope, or rate of change. It is essential in all sciences.
Integrals: The integral generalizes the idea of area. As the derivative, it is essential for all sciences. Immerse yourself in these pages to understand this concept and get some practice solving problems.
In all these pages you will learn about these concepts by first forming an intuition, then solving common problems that apply these concepts.
Who am I?
My name is Pablo Antuna and I'm just a guy passionate about maths and teaching. I decided to create this site so I can teach calculus the way I wish I had been taught it, and to share my passion for it. You can learn more about me in the about page.
