Calculus: A Gold Mine of Worked Examples for You

You can rest easy that you will learn and pass calculus!
4.4 (8 ratings) Instead of using a simple lifetime average, Udemy calculates a
course's star rating by considering a number of different factors
such as the number of ratings, the age of ratings, and the
likelihood of fraudulent ratings.

About This Course

Published 5/2016 English

Course Description

You are in calculus and your professor moves quickly! 

Your questions are met with condescension from both tutors and professors. 

You have a textbook with explanations that are brief and confusing. 

You have a professor who puts unhelpful proofs on the board.  

You would do anything to find a teacher with some patience. 

You ask fellow students for help but they are busy with other classes.  

You begin to panic!  Relax!  I am here to help!   

What are the requirements?

  • A basic calculator (need not be fancy).
  • Basic algebra and trigonometry. I don't expect perfection.
  • It is fine if a student is rusty on a few topics from algebra/trigonometry.
  • The student should be arithmetically strong though (times tables, adding, etc.)

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand The Vocabulary of Calculus
  • Work Calculus Problems

What is the target audience?

  • Students who need help in calculus! Students who want a caring tutor.

What you get with this course?

12:52

If The Limit Of A Function f(x) At A Point x=c Tends to Zero And If g Is Bounded On An Interval about x=c, Then The Limit Of The Product f(x)g(x) at x=c Will Equal Zero.  You Will Be Able To Recognize And Apply This Rule When It Is Necessary.

Sometimes A Function Will Be Continuous At A Point But Will Fail To Be Differentiable There.  This Can Be True Even If The Graph Of A Function Is 'Smooth' At A Point.  Indeed, We Can Get A Vertical Tangent At Such A Point. Sharp Points Are Also Examined.  You Will Be Able To Distinguish Between The Different Types Of Points At Which A Function Is Not Differentiable But Still Continuous.

Instructor Biography

Jason Patrick Broadway, Dedicated Math Instructor Who Wants You To Learn Calculus!

Hi!  My name is Jason Broadway.  I have my M.S. in mathematics from Middle Tennessee State University and I have taught calculus before in the technical college setting.  I have also tutored individuals one-on-one in calculus.  Students have thanked me for opening doors for them that were once shut.  When I taught and tutored, I showed patience toward my students.  They also appreciated the fact that I did not skip steps whenever I taught a particular concept.
