The main ideas which underpin the calculus developed over a very long period of time indeed. The first steps were taken by Greek mathematicians. To the Greeks numbers were ratios of integers so the number line had "holes" in it. They got round this difficulty by using lengths, areas and volumes in addition to numbers for, to the Greeks, not all lengths were numbers. Zeno of Elea , about 450 BC, gave a number of problems which were based on the infinite. For example he argued that motion is impossible:- If a body moves from A to B then before it reaches B it passes through the mid-point, say B of AB. Now to move to B it must first reach the mid-point B of AB . Continue this argument to see that A must move through an infinite number of distances and so cannot move. Leucippus Democritus and Antiphon all made contributions to the Greek method of exhaustion which was put on a scientific basis by Eudoxus about 370 BC. The method of exhaustion is so called because one thinks of the areas measured expanding so that they account for more and more of the required area. However Archimedes , around 225 BC, made one of the most significant of the Greek contributions. His first important advance was to show that the area of a segment of a parabola is

The University of Minnesota Calculus Initiative
The Geometry Center is assisting in the development of interactive technology-based modules for the engineering calculus sequence. These modules emphasize geometric concepts of calculus while examining applications of mathematics to the physical and life sciences.
Rainbow Lab
How are rainbows formed? Why do they only occur when the sun is behind the observer? If the sun is low on the horizon, at what angle in the sky should we expect to see a rainbow? This lab helps to answer these and other questions by examining a mathematical model of light passing through a water droplet.
Numerical Integration Lab
The fundamental theorem of calculus tells us that if we know the rate of change of some quantity, then adding up (or integrating) the rate of change over some interval will give the total change in that quantity over the same interval. But often scientists do not know a formula for a function, but can only experimentally know the value of the function at discrete times. Is it possible to "integrate" this discrete data? If so, how?

124. That's Calculus!
Humorous approach to lessons , which are given using Real Player video clips. Topics cover the concept of limit, derivatives, and summation series.
"The introduction of limits causes much anxiety for many students in introductory calculus. This video is an excellent resource because it touches upon the important ideas underlying limits in a light-hearted, but correct way. It also serves a bridge enabling the instructor to pick up, review, and expand on this important concept. I highly recommend it." Richard Melka
Professor of Mathematics
University of Pittsburgh
This humorous video review of basic calculus concepts is ideal to supplement high school or college mathematics classes, home schooling, or individual study.
The series, featuring acclaimed performance artist Josh Kornbluth, was developed by Dartmouth College faculty for the Mathematics Across The Curriculum project with the support of the National Science Foundation. Episode 1: To The Limit. Josh explores the intuitive notion of limit from playground slides to food processors. Episodes 2 and 3: The Formal Limit. Josh plays the epsilon-delta game and visits the For All There Exists Cafe as he explains the formal definition of limit.

125. Advice For Calculus Students
Advice provided by calculus students, at the end of the semester, for future beginning calculus students.
Advice for Beginning Calculus Students
This is some advice provided by Calculus students I have had, at the end of the semester, for future beginning calculus students.
For Calculus I, the requirement should be a strong background in mathematics. This course requires that you study about ten to fifteen hours a week outside of class. Work ahead of the professor's lecture and always read the section before you go to class. Never give up, and always try your hardest. Make sure that you're in the right class (don't get stuck in the wrong class). Be prepared! Calculus is a tough course and it helps to have a strong background in precalculus algebra and trigonometry. Be sure to really know those trig functions.
In Class
During class, view the examples seriously, and copy them quickly in detail. Read the section before coming to class, it would help a lot. Ask lots of questions in class. Go to each and every class. If you don't understand something, try reading the book. Learn how to write good notes. Do not depend on your instructor to teach you everything.
