1. Calculus is split into two branches, differential calculus and integral calculus. Differential calculus is used to find the rates of change for geometric curves. This means that differential calculus is used to find the slope or tangent along a specific direction of a geometric curve. This relates directly to change, because finding the slope or tangent of a geometric curve is essentially finding the rate of change for that geometric curve. The other branch of calculus, integral calculus, is concerned with finding the area under a curve. This is accomplished by using small towers, to find the closest area of the curve. This relates to change because you can find the difference in area of the curve, depending on the equation’s curve’s restrictions. The relationship between these two branches is that they are inverse operations. This means that taking a derivative after finding an integral, would leave you with the original equation. 2. The method of exhaustion is a process that is still used today in order to find the area of irregular shapes that typically have curved bounded areas. The process uses regular polygons to approximate the area of irregular polygons. This is done by the process of circumscription, which means that a regular polygon is placed around the irregular polygon, but each of the corners of the regular polygon will touch the edge of the circle. Then, another regular polygon is inscribed within the irregular polygon. This means that the regular polygon is placed within the irregular polygon, with each of the corners just touching the edges of the irregular polygon. The word exhaustion is accurately used in the description of this method, because by adding more and more regular polygons to inscribe and circumscribe around the irregular polygon, the extra space is actually exhausted so that the closest area approximation can be found.

Ever since men felt the need to count, the history of calculus begins, which together with Mathematics is one of the oldest and most useful science. Since men felt that need for counting objects, this need led to the creation of systems that allowed them to maintain control of their properties. They initially did it with the use of fingers, legs, or...

...History and the Importance of CalculusCalculus can be summed up as "the study of mathematically defined change"5, or the study of infinity and the infinitesimal. The basic concepts of it include: limits, derivatives, differentiation and integrals. The word "calculus" means "rock"; the reason behind the naming of it is that rocks were used to used to carry out arithmetic. This branch of mathematics is able to be rooted all the way back to around 450...

...Like most discoveries, calculus was the culmination of centuries of work rather than an instant epiphany. Mathematicians all over the world contributed to its development, but the two most recognized discoverers of calculus are Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Although the credit is currently given to both men, there was a time when the debate over which of them truly deserved the recognition was both heated and widespread. Evidence also shows...

Calculus:
Calculus (Latin, calculus, a small stone used for counting) is a branch of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. This subject constitutes a major part of modern mathematics education. It has two major branches, Differential Calculus and Integral Calculus, which are related by the fundamental theorem of calculus.
Calculus is the...

...“The Contribution of Calculus in the Social Progress”
The history of calculus falls into several distinct time periods, most notably the ancient, medieval, and modern periods. The ancient period introduced some of the ideas of integral calculus, but does not seem to have developed these ideas in a rigorous or systematic way. Calculating volumes and areas, the basic function of integral calculus, can be traced back to the Egyptian...
