Hello, I'm taking cal I and II this summer as a special five week course each. I need a good way to understand the concepts of calculus. It seemed like in college algebra the examples that were done in class were fine, i could do those with no problem, but once I got home and looked at the homework, i realized the homework looked totally different than the examples from class (which were an exact replica of the sample problems in the book). I always felt like if the instructor used different examples other than the ones already in the book, i'd be able to understand it better. But now I really just think that I'm not understanding the concepts very well (I kind of picked up on this in Trig). Does anyone have any "magic spells" for understanding the concepts? I don't want to be a robot, I can do without memorizing, I want to be able to understand it. And cal I and II will be moving along very swiftly (five week courses) and I need all the help I can get. Thanks guys.
