Calculus

Calculus is the branch of mathematics that studies the continuous change (rate of change). The Greek mathematician Euclid (300 BC) and Archimedes (287-212 BC) were familiar with concept of derivative in terms of the tangent line. Indian mathematician Aryabhata (476-55 AD) used the rate of change to define the motion of moon. Bhaskara II (1114-1185) also contributed in the development of computation of rate of change by using infinitesimals. The notation of derivative was introduced by Leibniz. Issac Newton also contributed a lot in the development of calculus. He frequently used the concepts of calculus in his physics work.
In this course students will learn about limits of function, continuity and derivative, applications of derivatives, integral, applications of integrals and Differential Equations.
