I am updating this review as I go along the course. I have arrived at chapter 4 ("Applications") and it is simply wonderful. Calculus is about gradual change and I have never seen a better demonstration than in Prof Ghrist's animated videos. You need to take this course! \------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------- First impressions: Whoah, check out the drawings and the colors! WHAT IS THIS? A calculus course for kindergarten? Those where my first thoughts when I saw the promotional video. Meanwhile, I think the drawings and colors are great. You can feel the sheer amount of energy that the instructor has spent on making his videos. Math is all about seeing things from a different perspective. Note: you should have had a prior course in calculus before starting this one. Also know that Prof Ghrist takes an applied approach to calculus, so expect few proofs.
