Calculus review

  1. Aug 21, 2008 #1
    I'm beginning my undergrad education this fall. I took AP Calculus in my junior year of high school. My school didn't offer any math after AP Calc and so I haven't done any calc for over a year. Does anyone know any good websites where I can go to review calculus concepts before I start college?

    Thanks, that is exactly the kind of site I was looking for.

    Any good calculus review sites?

    I'm going back to school and I need to know some websites that could give me a good review of calculus 1 and calculus 2. I haven't seen the stuff in two years. I could also use a physics review website too. :uhh:

    This website is very good and has helped me prepare for Calc. II. Hope this helps!

    Yes, there are plenty. I don't know if you want single variable calculus resources only or if you also want multivariate calculus resources (in some schools calculus is 2 semesters long, so calc 1 is single variable and cacl 2 is multi/vector; whereas in some schools calculus is taught over 3 semesters), so I will list both.

    If you want only notes (which might be most time efficient for review purposes), see the sites below.

    Now, if you are also interested in lectures for the purposes of review, please see the following sites.

    As for physics, you ought to ask for that in the appropriate section.

    If you are looking for some worked examples, This site helped me when I first started off:


    Although If you keep your head up and work hard you should be fine.

    Google the basic rules of integrals.

    This really helped me to understand basically how we derive calculus differential or integral.

    How can you define the volume of a sphere without actually specifying a radius?


    Wiki pinch of salt but generally the pure maths is ok.

    The Khanacademy is a pretty good place for refreshing on Calculus. You can also look into MIT OCW for some advance stuff.
