In the first term of my Calculus, I had a hard time to review all my previous Math subjects, like Trigonometry and Algebra. I don’t have any idea in Calculus; I just know that it’s harder and more complicated than my previous Math subjects. After the midterm of this Semester I somehow know what Calculus for is, I learned that Differential Calculus can be use in finding the change in ratio. I also know that Calculus can be use to find the maximum and minimum rate of objects. It can also apply in other situation that involve changing and math. Using the concept of function derivatives, it studies the behavior and rate on how different quantities change. Using the process of differentiation, the graph of a function can actually be computed, analyzed, and predicted.

Though it is complicated to use well, calculus does have a lot of practical uses - uses that you probably won't comprehend at first. The most common practical use of calculus is when plotting graphs of certain formulae or functions. Using methods such as the first derivative and the second derivative, a graph and its dimensions can be accurately estimated. These 2 derivatives are used to predict how a graph may look like, the direction that it is taking on a specific point, the shape of the graph at a specific point (if concave or convex), just to name a few. When do you use calculus in the real world? In fact, you can use calculus in a lot of ways and applications. Among the disciplines that utilize calculus include physics, engineering, economics, statistics, and medicine. It is used to create mathematical models in order to arrive into an optimal solution. For example, in physics, calculus is used in a lot of its concepts. Among the physical concepts that use concepts of calculus include motion, electricity, heat, light, harmonics, acoustics, astronomy, and dynamics. In fact, even advanced physics concepts including electromagnetism and Einstein's theory of...

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...

Introduction to Calculus…
Did you know that…
The study of the Differential Calculus (5th semester) and the Integral Calculus (6th semester) can be integrated into just one subject called Infinitesimal Calculus?
Warning: This document is full of inaccuracies and lack of formalism; however it pretends to be an excellent opportunity to get to know the topic for the first time since a perspective very general. If you want to be more...

Calculus in Medicine
Calculus is the mathematical study of changes (Definition). Calculus is also used as a method of calculation of highly systematic methods that treat problems through specialized notations such as those used in differential and integral calculus. Calculus is used on a variety of levels such as the field of banking, data analysis, and as I will...

...How the calculus was invented?
Calculus, historically known as infinitesimal calculus, is a mathematical discipline focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. Ideas leading up to the notions of function, derivative, and integral were developed throughout the 17th century, but the decisive step was made by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz. Publication of Newton's main treatises took many years, whereas Leibniz...

...Calculus
'One of the greatest contributions to modern mathematics, science, and engineering was
the invention of calculus near the end of the 17th century,' says The New Book of Popular
Science. Without the invention of calculus, many technological accomplishments, such as the
landing on the moon, would have been difficult.
The word 'calculus' originated from the Latin word meaning pebble. This is probably
because people many years...
