The Top 10 Calculus Websites

As a new semester begins it is important to start collecting the Calculus resources you will need. In this blog post I want to give you the top 10 Calculus websites. They are not ranked in any particular order. Instead I have categorized them by videos, calculators, textbooks and solutions. This categorization is more art than science as many of these sites have content in more than one category. And what criteria did I judge these sites on? Free, big, useful, and authoritative. Let's get started.

The Calculus Chain Rule

The Chain Rule is one of those Calculus rules that you have to always have in the back of your mind when you are doing differentiation. When we have two functions there are several ways that we can combine those two functions to create another function. We can add them, subtract them, multiply them, or divide them. Another way you can combine two functions is by Function composition. Function composition is used to describe and summarize complex dependencies in nature. For example, when sea temperatures rise there are less krill.

Integrating Functions with Sage!

This is the fourth lesson in five where we are discussing Sage and how it can be used to make your Calculus life easier. In the first lesson you learned how to create your own account and how to create a worksheet. In the second lesson you learned how to plot functions with Sage. In the third lesson you learned how to differentiate using Sage. In this lesson we are going to learn how to calculate integrals.
