The only way to succeed at calculus is to first achieve a firm grasp of the key concepts: limits, derivatives and integrals. After that, learning the problem-solving techniques would be much easier...
Dear Calculus Student,
I'm glad you arrived to this page, since this means there's a good chance you'll succeed in calculus (if you continue reading).
If you want to feel at ease during calculus tests, gain confidence in your mathematical capacity and just get an excellent grade in calculus, then you've found the way.
My name is Pablo Antuna, I've been a calculus tutor for some years now and I'm on my way to my math PhD. Mathematics is my passion. I never considered myself a good writer, but I wanted to share something with you.
You see, as I started tutoring math students, I realized something that was disturbing to me: Calculus is usually the stumbling block for students of the sciences and engineering.
That is, many students give up a carreer in science or the dream to be an engineer because they don't consider themselves smart enough to master calculus.
It isn't about intelligence, though. Well, it is about intelligence, but not the kind of intelligence most people think...
How a Mathematician Thinks...
As I advanced in my mathematics carreer, I learned that most people have a misconception about math: to be good at math you need an inborn talent.
There are indeed some really gifted people out there. However, the truth is that most mathematicians and most people that use advanced math are normal people, just like you and me.
What they have of special is the way they think. And that way of thinking can be taught, and learned.
Giving Your Intuition A Chance
I like to call this way of thinking intuitive thinking. What I mean by this is forming an intuitive idea in your mind of the concepts you learn.
This intuitive idea can be composed of pictures or other abstract ideas, but it must be something meaningful to you.
Almost every math teacher uses this method of thinking. However, they don't give enough examples of how to do it for their students to learn it.
The Testing Ground
Soon after this realization, I started to convey it to my students and to change my methods of teaching. The results were palpable...
They not only started getting better grades, almost all of them also told me they started liking math much more than before.
You see, most people think math is about boring formulas and tedious calculations. These things are a part of math, but they are the grammar of math, not the poetry.
The poetry of math is formed by the intuitive ideas.
But enought about poetry, how can I help YOU succeed at calculus?
I decided to create the ultimate resource for learning calculus the intuitive way, it is called The Intuitive Calculus Course.
I divided this course in three modules. Each of them deals with one topic of calculus. In this page you'll find the details to the second module: The Intuitive Guide to Derivatives. Learn about the other modules...
This module is an ebook in Adobe PDF format that you can immediately download to your computer.
This module deals with one of the three central concepts in calculus: derivatives. In this course we assume you already mastered limits, so it would be a good idea to first go through the first module (best deal? Get both!).
This module will give you a deep understanding of derivatives. You can use it no matter at what level you are: high-school, college or self-studying.
You'll not only learn the intuitive ideas, but also learn to solve problems that usually appear on exams using simple techniques (I specially selected them from real-life tests of different top universities).
You can use this module in two ways:
With this module you'll master everything you need to know about derivatives. Here's a sample of the things you'll learn:
Some people tell me there are already too many calculus textbooks out there. That's true, but there's nothing like The Intuitive Calculus Course. That's because this is not a textbook.
Well, it is not your ordinary textbook...
You see, most textbooks are written with teachers in mind. How so? Aren't they used by students?
Yes. However, the truth is that teachers are the ones who assign to their students which textbook to use. So, if teachers don't like a particular textbook, no one will buy it.
Not many authors are willing to write a book that nobody will read. So, the result is that authors try to please teachers with their books.
This means that they try to be very correct and formal in their writing. They try very hard to avoid any logical error and many times disregard the need to convey the intuitive idea of concepts, or even to explain with detail how to solve a particular problem.
This is not the case with The Intuitive Calculus Course, because this is a course with you, the student, in mind.
You know that your first calculus course can be the turning point of your carreer. Why not make your success inevitable?
Let's compare The Intuitive Calculus Course with other ways in which you can really learn calculus.
One way is to try to learn only from your lectures and reading your book. This is the traditional method. However, as I pointed earlier, this method is not the most effective.
Another option is to hire a tutor. This may seem a viable solution, but do you know how much that costs? A good tutor may cost between 40$ and 80$ per hour. Just check this site for yourself.
That's much more that triple of the cost of this module of the Intuitive Calculus Course.
Also, consider the cost of your ordinary textbook. Most calculus textbooks cost more than 150$. They can be roughly divided into three sections: limits, derivatives and integrals. So, we can say that you are paying 50$ to learn about derivatives.
To make this module accesible to almost everyone, I priced it only $19.75.
For this price a tutor would teach you only about 20 minutes.
Why such a low price for a 140-page ebook with the most effective method to learn derivatives in calculus?
