Calculus Tricks

  1. Sep 17, 2011 #1
    Can anyone list some useful tricks for calculus and vector calculus.

    i.e. sneaky substitutions, changing limits of integration when changing coordinate systems, parametrization of curves, surfaces, and volumes etc.

    The really useful "trick" is understanding!
