## 課程概述

Calculus is one of the grandest achievements of human thought, explaining everything from planetary orbits to the optimal size of a city to the periodicity of a heartbeat. This brisk course covers the core ideas of single-variable Calculus with emphases on conceptual understanding and applications. The course is ideal for students beginning in the engineering, physical, and social sciences. Distinguishing features of the course include: 1) the introduction and use of Taylor series and approximations from the beginning; 2) a novel synthesis of discrete and continuous forms of Calculus; 3) an emphasis on the conceptual over the computational; and 4) a clear, dynamic, unified approach. In this first part--part one of five--you will extend your understanding of Taylor series, review limits, learn the *why* behind l'Hopital's rule, and, most importantly, learn a new language for describing growth and decay of functions: the BIG O....

Very well structured for a refresher course. Thank you Professor Ghrist for your effort in putting this course together. A little additional outside research was required but well worth the effort.

Excellent class. Prof. Ghrist has a great teaching style, and his idea to use Taylor Series first is quite effective. Many functions I have shied away from in the past are now familiar to me.

ppt真心做得很漂亮，但是这门课程不是一门入门课，面向对象是在已经掌握了微积分的前提下、希望对微积分进一步了解和巩固的学生，自然，有些地方的讲述是非常仓促的。

I have taken a calculus course at university which dealt with the epsilon-delta definition of things. Enjoyed the different approach as well, keep up the good work!

Challenging, because begins with the infinite series, which are not a simple concept. Once complete, a much higher level of mathematical understanding is achieved.

A good course but quire difficult and definitely requires a strong calculus foundation. The weird rhythm of the professor speaking is somewhat distracting.

I would like to have been able to review some quiz questions with answers after the course was complete. That option does not seem to exist.

The lectures on Big O (growth rates) are way too hard to comprehend, compared to the rest of the lectures. Please do try to simplify them.

Excelente curso para volver a repasar los conceptos de calculo que estudiamos en la universidad.

the big O part is a bit ubiquitous. But everything else is amazingly described.

Videoes of the course is very good but some questions are little difficult.

It could be better if we can see the key or tips for the homework.

a good and neat course, I used it for reviewing and it went well

Everything was exceptionally well taught except the Big-O part.
