Calculus Lifesaver: A Free Online Course

Updat­ed post: It’s rare that we get to cov­er math here. So here it goes: Adri­an Ban­ner, a lec­tur­er at Prince­ton, has put togeth­er a lec­ture series (in video) that will help stu­dents mas­ter cal­cu­lus, a sub­ject that has tra­di­tion­al­ly frus­trat­ed many stu­dents. The 24 lec­tures (get them on iTunes) were orig­i­nal­ly pre­sent­ed as review ses­sions for Prince­ton intro­duc­to­ry cal­cu­lus cours­es offered in 2006, and each runs about two hours. It’s worth not­ing that Ban­ner has used the lec­tures to devel­op a handy book, The Cal­cu­lus Life­saver: All the Tools You Need to Excel at Cal­cu­lus. To find this course (and many oth­ers like it), look in our col­lec­tion of Free Online Cours­es from Great Uni­ver­si­ties. Here you will also find MIT’s course, Sin­gle Vari­able Cal­cu­lus, which now appears on YouTube and iTune­sU.

  • This is awe­some and some­thing that I am in need of this semes­ter.

    I under­stand math but it takes awhile for me to be it into my thick skull. I’m sort of glad that I will be done with math class­es after calc, but there is some­thing about math that I real­ly enjoy. I think that it is the idea that there is a clear cut answer and sev­er­al dif­fer­ent ways to get there.

    Any­ways, thanks for this resource, I am sub­scribed now and will be read­ing.
