Hello, my name is Pablo Antuna. I'm a graduate math student at Instituto de Matematica Pura y Aplicada (IMPA) at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. O have a passion for math and also for teaching.
Why is the theme of this site calculus? Well, we could say that calculus is the first time you're exposed to “real” math. It is also the level at which most people quit math.
I think all math subjects are important, but for these reasons I think calculus is really essential.
Understanding the concepts of calculus will give you great confidence. You'll be able to choose any career path you want, without needing to “avoid math”.
I don't intend to replace your textbook or your classes. Think of me as a friend that understands some math, and is helping you out. I'm not a super genius. I just happen to like math and teaching.
Here are some nice messages from people who found this website useful:
