MIT’s Vintage 1970 Calculus Courses Now Online … And Still Handy

Long ago, long before MIT hatched plans for its OpenCourseWare initiative and later edX, the university taped a lecture series covering the equivalent of a freshman-level calculus course. Released in 1970, the introductory class taught by Herbert Gross was suited for any student brushing up on his/her calculus, or learning the subject for the first time. MIT has now revived the lecture series, called “Calculus Revisited: Single Variable Calculus,” along with two more advanced courses. Although times have changed, calculus remains the same. And you’ll still find the series to be quite handy.

The courses are also listed in the Math section of our Free Online Course collection (where you’ll find many other calc courses)…
