Calculus

Recommended Posts

Im going to be taking calculus next semester (I''m a bit behind in the math department, I know). Was wondering if anyone could recommend any online/published material that would help give me a head start. I''m not all that bright, but if presented well I enjoy learning. I''m looking mainly for stuff that would help with a calculus class, but feel free to drop suggestions on other subjects as well. Of particular interest would be entry level physics (If such a thing exists). Thanks

If you are in college, you can go to your schools bookstore two or three weeks before schools starts and buy the book. Thats what I did. Just read it and do some of the problems. Believe me, being two chapters ahead of the class helps _ALOT_. If you are a high schooler, I guess youre out of luck in this case.

The thing that will help you out the most in calculus is a good background in precalculus. Calculus is far different than other forms of math you have encountered in the past. The solutions are not found in such linear fashion as in prior math classes.

The best thing you can do is brush up on the precalc and hope for a good teacher.
