Description

Calculus is a difficult and complex topic. We get that, which is why we created this course. This course is the first of several that aims to divide the vast mountain of knowledge that is calculus into manageable chunks. You may notice that other courses have hours and hours of video. In this course, almost all lectures are relatively short (4-8 minutes) and are followed by quick quizzes to check your understanding by challenging you to apply what you learned. I believe this teaching style is more effective than the traditional style and will help students learn more quickly while increasing knowledge retention. I won't bore you to sleep with unnecessarily long lectures, but instead efficiently provide you with the information you need and plenty of examples to check your understanding.
