Video lectures on Calculus I

  1. Jan 23, 2008 #1
    Don't know if it's already been posted somewhere else, my apologies if it has been, but I found http://press.princeton.edu/video/banner/8351.html" [Broken] video lectures by Adrian Banner quite educational. It's not very advanced stuff, but everything is explained very clearly. Good stuff.

    That actually looks like calc 1 and 2

    This will be useful.

    Thanks for the links

    I am new to the forum. Are there any more really good ones I should know about? :) As I am still a little bit confused in browsing all the stuff that's here

    WHO is that professor really, on the YouTube videos which have the description, "Lugosi Teaches Math...", and the several separate videos on Series, Convergence, Infinity? The person in the lectures IS NOT Bela Lugosi, but the YouTube descriptions say that he is. Who is he really, and what institution did he teach at, and when?

    Hey guys,

    I found this really cool site that has over 50 Calculus video lectures in a neat and organized form. It also has other lectures from MIT on Calculus topics and Differential Equations. I shall warn you though: I recommend viewing the site in Firefox or Safari, cuz IE is being a little bit fuzzy on this one:

    Calculus Video Lectures: http://www.cosmolearning.com/mathematics/courses/Calculus_Video_Lectures/video_lectures/ [Broken]
    Single Variable Calculus: http://www.cosmolearning.com/mathematics/courses/18.01_Single_Variable_Calculus/video_lectures/
    Multivariable Calculus: http://www.cosmolearning.com/mathematics/courses/18.02_Multivariable_Calculus/video_lectures/
    Differential Equations: http://www.cosmolearning.com/mathematics/courses/18.03_Differential_Equations/video_lectures/

    Enjoy! :smile:

    Are there any single variale calc video lectures based off of spivak book? I'm planning on self learning calculus over the summer and using his book to do so. It would be nice to have some kind of a backup just in case I don't understand something. By the way, I already bought the textbook.

    Edit: Also which colleges actually use spivak or apostol as their textbook? Is it possible to skip calc I/II if we demonstrate sufficient knowledge on the subjects through an exam they give us?

    I used these for my distance course (no lectures). I found them very good.

    The answer is, "Herb Gross", or "Herbert Gross", (possibly from a school in Maryland). Someone posted the man's name on the YouTube messages for one of these videos.

    A good place to look for video lectures is on iTunes U, they have a vast assortment of math and science lectures from reputable colleges (MIT, Cornell, etc.)

    I just got a chance to finally watch the Linear Algebra section of his DE lectures. Very good. He has put a HUGE amount of work into creating those. Very very slick. The Calc ones look pretty good too, but I have only glanced at them...
