Calculus Help

Postby DaZergRock54444 » 2012-03-12 08:21pm

I am currently in need of assistance with my Calculus course.

To Elaborate:
I am taking the equivalent of Calculus I for dual (high school and college) credit and require assistance in a variety of topics. We are currently beginning integral calculus and have just learned the Fundamental Theorem. What I mainly need is additional practice problems, and, on occasion, deeper explanations of certain principals (i.e. the Delta-Epsilon method for finding limits).

Thank you in advance for any assistance you might render to me,

If you're using a decent textbook, it should have tons of practice problems after each section. If you're not, you should go onto Amazon and buy an older edition of one of the classic textbooks like Stewart. As far as understanding various concepts (e.g. epsilon-delta proofs), you should ask your professor first, then possibly post specific questions about particular concepts here (where you may have some helpers, including myself if I check frequently enough and have time to respond) or at a dedicated math-help site like

Additionally, we're not here to do your homework for you. Just keep that in mind.

Your school also most likely has tutoring that is free and available, especially for lower division classes like Calc 1. That would be a much better resource for you than random people on the internet.

That being said, Surlethe and Kuroneko will talk your head off about math given the chance...
