Calculus essentially takes the fundamentals of algebra and extends them to include rates of change between quantities. The concepts are taught entirely through step-by-step example problems of increasing difficulty. It works by introducing each new concept in an easy to understand way and using example problems that are worked out step-by-step and line-by-line to completion. This lesson conceptually introduces the concept of the derivative, which is one of the central topics in Calculus. The derivative is introduced by way of a discussion of real-world experience with position, velocity, and acceleration in everyday life. The position, velocity, and acceleration graphs are drawn to illustrate the point and numerous example problems are worked to reinforce the material.

Calculus essentially takes the fundamentals of algebra and extends them to include rates of change between quantities. Calculus is extremely powerful and very useful in the study of Science and Engineering, motion of bodies, fluid mechanics, electricity, magnetism, and is the foundation for nearly all branches of science. The Calculus Tutor Series is a complete 17 lesson series covering all of the core topics in detail. What sets this series apart from other calculus teaching tools is that the concepts are taught entirely through step-by-step example problems of increasing difficulty. It works by introducing each new concept in an easy to understand way and using example problems that are worked out step-by-step and line-by-line to completion. If a student has a problem with coursework or homework, simply find a similar problem fully worked on in the series and review for the steps needed to solve the problem. Students will be able to work problems with ease, improve their problem-solving skills and understand the underlying concepts of Calculus. Host, Jason Gibson holds M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics from the University of Texas. He has been teaching Math Tutor programs since 2004, with his proven methods of helping students understand basic math and physics principles step-by-step, using practical examples.
