Introduction to differential calculus

  • 5.1 & 5.3 Calculus Concept

    This is the first of three sections on differential calculus. This is significant branch of mathematics with lots of applications. It builds very nicely on other concepts in the course and those you are likely to have covered previously. The...

  • 5.2 & 5.4 Calculus part 2

    In this unit we look at find the equations of tangents and normals to curves, increasing and decreasing functions and the second derivative. All this builds on the fundamental notion that calculus tells us about the rate of of change of a function.

  • 5.6 & 5.7 Calculus Part 3

    This is the part where we learn about how we use calculus to solve different kinds of problems. So far we have spent a lot of time learning about how claculus helps us to work out the gradient of given function for any given point. In this...

  • 5.5 & 5.8 Integration and Trapezoidal rule

    In this section of the course you will learn about an area of calculus called integration. This an be considered in multiple ways, both as the inverse of differentiation (anti-differentiation) and in finding areas under curves. We will also...
