Mohamed A. Khamsi, Helmut Knaust, Nancy Marcus, Michael O'Neill, and Luis G. Valdez Sanchez in association with The University of Texas at El Paso have developed a most excellent math site that covers topics ranging from basic algebra to complex variables, and very much includes calculus. They call it S.O.S. Mathematics. Click the logo to get to their main page. SOSMATH logo

The Math Forum Math Forum logo has a great list of calculus links as well as a host of other resources. Click on their star-logo to go there. They also provide the Ask Dr. Mathtm pages, which I very much recommend.

The University of Akron also has an excellent calculus tutorial, complete with many examples and problems for you. Click here to get to e-Calculus. You will need an Adobe Acrobat® plug-in for your browser in order to view their material.

Bill Bogley and Robby Robson are on the math faculty of Oregon State University. They have prepared a tutorial called CalculusQuestTM, which contains wonderful illustrations of calculus concepts using stories and interactive screens. Check it out.

How about downloading a free calculus reference booklet? Someone who chooses not to post his or her name has made something called The Calculus Bible available as a Microsoft Word document. It's a handy reference guide with all the formulas and methods you have been learning summarized and ready for printing. Just click on the title and you're on your way to getting it for free.

Dr Ben Taylor Langton has prepared a unique website QuickMath logo that can actually work certain algebra and calculus problems for you. Check it out by clicking on the logo. But please do not be lulled into thinking that this site will do your homework for you. Use it to see if you got the right answer to a problem, but still do the work for yourself. It's the only way you'll learn. You will be (or at least you should be) graded on how you solve problems rather than on just writing down answers.

The physics department at The University of Pennsylania has prepared PFP96 logo, which you can get to by clicking on the logo. It contains concise descriptions of many calculus concepts as well as numerous ways to apply calculus to problems in physics, chemistry, and electrical engineering.

If you are in need of a tutor, Chaim Lazar offers a service for matching tutors with students over the internet. To find out more, click here.

Homer Simpson clicked here and now he knows some calculus. The name of this site is Help With Calculus for Idiots (Like Me), and it provides very concise explanations of most of the calculus concepts you will have to learn in a first year course.

Click on Visual Calculus logo for an excellent calculus tutorial by Larry Husch at the Math Department of the University of Tennessee.

Harvey Mudd College has a well organized tutorial that covers calculus together with much of the prerequisite material that you should know before taking calculus. Click here to go there.

If you need a review of precalculus material that you learned last year but have now become rusty on, click here. It will take you to FHS Precalculus Study Page where they have coverage of topics such as linear and quadratic equations, inequalities, trig functions, polynomials, functions, etc.

A generous soul who identifies herself only as Karen has a cool math site called CoolMath logo. Click on the logo to go there. She offers lots of useful algebra and precalculus pages if you need review. I also especially like her page on limits. And there are plenty of math-entertainment pages at her site too. Check it out.

Calculus@Internet logo has lots of pages of both calculus and precalculus. Worth a visit.

Some folks at the University of Toronto have made class notes and past examinations available on the web. You will need to download an Adobe Acrobat® viewer in order to read them (and they take some time to download). There is a large volume of material here, and it is available to you by clicking here.

Click here to see a site, sponsored by IES inc. of Japan, that has Java applets illustrating a number of calculus concepts.

The Math Department at Vanderbilt University has a webpage of math tools called MathServ. It can do things like factor polynomials, graph equations, find derivatives and antiderivatives, and lots of other neat stuff.

Kenny Felder has some illuminating and useful essays, some of which might help you with your calculus and some with physics, if you are taking that as well. Check it out by clicking here.

I'm proud to say that Lycos logo has rated Karl's Calculus Tutor among its top ten calculus sites. Click on the logo to go to their calculus category.

Eric W. Weisstein has put together a "Trove or Mathematics". You can click here to get to it.

Duane Kouba at UC Davis is building a solved calculus problems site that you can check out by clicking here. UC Davis also has its own calculus site that Duane Kouba and J. Haas edit.

Here is a link to some of JPL's artworks of places in the solar system. The creators of these certainly had both artistic skills and imagination. To imagine how we might get to places like this -- you'll need calculus for that.

Here is a link to my own personal page. The math section has a few interesting brain ticklers on it if you are interested.
