Calculus
# Calculus Warmups

Calculus flips the switch from discrete to continuous and runs an infinitely fine comb over functions and the real number system, unlocking the answers to questions that stumped the most prodigious minds before the 1600s.

The concepts of limits, infinitesimal partitions, and continuously changing quantities paved the way to calculus, the universal tool for modeling continuous systems from physics to economics.

If you’re just beginning to use Brilliant as a way to improve your mathematical prowess, here’s the essence of the Brilliant approach: solve problems. Here are some quick tips for strengthening your calculus problem-solving skills:

- Understand how to find the limit of a sequence.
- Review the derivatives and integrals of basic functions.
- Try to think about the physical or geometric interpretations of derivatives and integrals.
