# Calculus

Prerequisites: High school algebra and trigonometry.

*Recommended path*

- If you're looking for a rigorous set of lectures, go through MIT 18.01.
- If you want to refresh your memory of calculus concepts, use Trefor Bazett's videos.
- If you are scared of calculus and want to go through as many examples as possible, use Prof Leonard's lectures.
- If you learn most when going through examples, but Prof Leonard's videos are too long for you, try Khan Academy.

Course | Year | Description | Difficulty Level | Resources |

2010 | Rigorous, relatively fast-paced lectures | Medium | ||

2017 | Short-form videos with emphasis on simple explanations | Easy-Medium | 🗋 | |

2012, 2014 | Slow-paced long-form lectures with a lot of step-by-step examples | Easy | 🗋 | |

2008-2014 | Short-form videos with emphasis on building intuition with examples | Easy |

Prerequisites: Single Variable Calculus

*Recommended path*

- Basically the same as above. One difference: if you're looking for videos that go through similar content as the MIT lectures (with similar level of rigorousness), but from a different perspective or with a different set of examples, try out Michael Penn's videos.
