Calculus

Calculus is the branch of mathematics that deals with the derivatives and integrals of functions. In calculus we look at how we can obtain derivatives and integrals as well as their properties.

Derivatives and integrals appear in many areas of study. For example, it can be very useful when studying things like projectiles or profit since the derivative of a function represents its rate of change.

Take a look at the pages in this section where you'll learn how to differentiate and integrate many types of functions. You'll also learn how to solve certain types of differential equations.
