## Description

**This is literally the ULTIMATE Calculus 1 Course!!!**

**Basically just,**

**1) Watch the videos, and try to follow along with a pencil and paper, take notes! **

**2) Try to do the problems before I do them(if you can!)**

**3) Try to complete the assignments. Solutions are included to every single assignment and in some cases the solutions are very detailed.**

**4) Repeat!**

**If you finish even 50% of this course you will know A LOT of Calculus 1 and more importantly your level of mathematical maturity will go up tremendously!**

**Calculus 1 is an absolutely beautiful subject. I hope you enjoy watching these videos and working through these problems as much as I have:)**

## Instructor

I was born on a small unnamed Island in the Pacific Ocean inhabited mostly by natives who practiced mathematics on a daily basis.

My mother was a witch who specialized in Calculus and my father was a warlock who was well versed in the dark arts of Algebra.

As I grew older so did my thirst for knowledge, and so I set out on a long voyage to improve my mathematical skills. I traveled the world for years and learned a great deal of mathematics, but it wasn't until I met that raging Hobbit that my true powers started to show.

I am here today to share my magical powers with you.

Come join on me on this journey as we explore the world of mathematics together.
