"What is calculus?" is a question many calculus students never learn the answer to!

Understanding what calculus is before you start learning how to use it will give you a better context for the whole course.

Calculus is the mathematical study of change, in the same way that geometry is the mathematical study of shape, or that trigonometry is the mathematical study of triangles.

Derivatives and integrals are the major concepts you'll learn in calculus. Derivatives allow you to find slope (rise over run), and integrals allow you to find area.

Hi, I’m Krista! I make math courses to keep you from banging your head against the wall. ;)

Math class was always so frustrating for me. I’d go to a class, spend hours on homework, and three days later have an “Ah-ha!” moment about how the problems worked that could have slashed my homework time in half. I’d think, “WHY didn’t my teacher just tell me this in the first place?!”

So I started tutoring to keep other people out of the same aggravating, time-sucking cycle. Since then, I’ve recorded tons of videos and written out cheat-sheet style notes and formula sheets to help every math student—from basic middle school classes to advanced college calculus—figure out what’s going on, understand the important concepts, and pass their classes, once and for all.
