Single Variable Calculus: Course Description

Professor David Jerison of MIT teaches this introductory calculus course for students beginning their undergraduate studies in Mathematics or related disciplines. No background in calculus is needed to fully understand the material in 'Single Variable Calculus'. The course centers on integration and differentiation of single-variable functions, as opposed to multi-variable functions which are left to more advanced calculus courses. Topics covered include derivatives, Newton's method, the fundamental theorem of calculus, parametric equations and infinite series. The online material is useful to anyone pursuing a bachelor's degree in Mathematics.

Lecture notes, problem sets with solutions, practice exams with solutions, links to useful resources and video lectures are available. For more information, visit the single-variable calculus course page.
