Welcome to my calculus tutorial and friend to the 1st year calculus student.

Karl's Calculus Tutor has been revamped for Fall '99 with more standard math notation for improved readability.

Email help is available, but please do try to find help in the text of these pages before you go sending me your questions. Note that I will not do your homework problems for you. I will only give you tips. You can reach me at hahn@netsrq.com.

Please make sure your email address is included in your question, either in the email header or somewhere in the text. I can't answer your question if I can't find you. Also, please observe that the online material here contains dozens of worked problems on a number of different topics. One of them might be similar to the one that is giving you difficulty. So drop in and have a look around. Finally, please do not send attachments. Because of the danger of computer viruses, any attachment you send is not likely to be opened. Rather than scanning a handwritten problem and sending it to me, please try to cipher it into plain-text on your keyboard. If you have any doubt about how to type in a math notation that I can read, please click here first for pointers on how to send math notation over the email.

Privacy: Your confidence is important to me. It is a blanket policy of Karl's Calculus Tutor that all correspondence you make requesting math help will remain confidential. Karl's Calculus Tutor will not disclose your name, your email address, or the content of your correspondence to anybody unless ordered by a court to do so.

To properly view this page, open your view port out to at least--->-->-->-->here
If you can't see the word "here" in the line above, place your mouse-cursor on the right-hand edge of the frame, hold the left mouse button, and drag the right-hand edge of the screen to the right until you can see it.

Browser Notes:

These pages work best with Netscape 3.0 or later. You can also use Internet Explorer 4.0 or later but you will find some misalignment of columns in the rendering of certain equations. Note that Explorer 3.x and earlier has some real problems with these pages.

Recommended settings for Netscape 4.x are: Select "Edit" from Netscape's top bar. Then select "Preferences..." from the pull-down. Under "Appearance," select "Fonts." For "Variable Width Font" select "Times New Roman" with size of 14 (12 will also work but is harder to read). For "Fixed Width Font" select "Courier" with size of 9, 10, 11, or 12. Use the largest size you can and still get the word "here" to appear on the right-hand side of the test line above. Note that the size of the fixed width font is important for alignment of equations and to ensure that they will fit onto the width of your screen. Also set the radio buttons for either "Use document-specified fonts, but disable dynamic fonts," or "Use document-specified fonts, including dynamic fonts."

Attention AOL subscribers: The browser that comes with the standard AOL package appears to be inadequate to view these pages properly. Netscape will run under your AOL account, and it will give you a much better view of the tutorial. If you do not know how to set up Netscape under your AOL account, consult with your AOL technical representative via email or phone to find out how. Or you can click here to go to Netscape's download site and fetch the Netscape Browser on your own.

Attention Unix Users: If you are running Netscape on an X-Windows platform, you may need to enable the symbol font in order to view these pages properly. Click here and either follow the instructions or find somebody who knows how Unix works to do it for you. This same fix may also work on Linux systems. You will know that you need to do this if you see something other than the Greek letter, omega (which looks like a horseshoe), here: W.

Attention MAC Users: If you don't see the Greek letter, omega, just above, you may be stuck. The only thing I can recommend is that you pester Apple until they decide to start supporting the Symbols font.
