Calculus Video Lectures + Bonus Basic Math

Hi all. This month I bring to you a bunch of calculus math video courses. As a bonus I have included some on fuzzy logic and really basic math such as trigonometry, algebra and geometry.

Calculus at San Francisco State University (SFSU, professor Dr. Goetz)

Course description:
The central object of the study in calculus is the concept of a function. Functions are used to describe the real world around us. Calculus introduces two fundamental concepts which enable us to describe and investigate functions. These are the derivative and the integral. The derivative describes how a function changes at a particular time. The integral carries information about the history of a function. Both, the derivative and the integral are defined using limits. Calculus 1 covers: Limits, Continuity, Asymptotes, The tangent problem, Rates of Change, Derivatives (including trigonometric and transcendental derivatives), Graphs, and their shapes, Optimizations, Riemann Sums, Integrals including two parts of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

Course topics:
Introduction to limits. Limit Laws. Continuity. Long term behavior and asymptotes. Rates of change. Derivative. Derivatives of Polynomials and the Exponential Function. Product and Quotient Rules. Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions. The Chain Rule. Implicit Differentiation. Derivatives of Logarithmic Functions. Introduction to Differential equations and Exponential Growth and Decay. Minimum and Maximum Values. Shapes of a Graph. Local Extrema and Inflection Points. L`Hospital's Rule. Graphs. Optimization. Antiderivatives. Estimates of areas under graphs. Definite Integrals.

MIT's Single Variable Calculus (18.01, professor David Jerison)

Course description:
The basic objective of Calculus is to relate small-scale (differential) quantities to large-scale (integrated) quantities. This is accomplished by means of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Students should demonstrate an understanding of the integral as a cumulative sum, of the derivative as a rate of change, and of the inverse relationship between integration and differentiation.
