Calculus is the mathematical study of things that change: cars accelerating, planets moving around the sun, economies fluctuating. To study these changing quantities, a new set of tools - calculus - was developed in the 17th century, forever altering the course of math and science.

By the end of this course, you'll be fluent in using calculus to describe and understand the changing physical world. Additionally, you'll have a firm conceptual and practical understanding of calculus and intuition that goes far deeper than simply knowing the procedures and formulas.
