Calculus is one of the grandest achievements of human thought, explaining everything from planetary orbits to the optimal size of a city to the periodicity of a heartbeat. This brisk course covers the core ideas of single-variable Calculus with emphases on conceptual understanding and applications. The course is ideal for students beginning in the engineering, physical, and social sciences. Distinguishing features of the course include: 1) the introduction and use of Taylor series and approximations from the beginning; 2) a novel synthesis of discrete and continuous forms of Calculus; 3) an emphasis on the conceptual over the computational; and 4) a clear, dynamic, unified approach.

This fifth unit is highly original! I loved the "digital calculus" part.
An introduction to numerical analysis was exactly what I need.
It requires more than this course! You need to learn normal calculus before this to pass the final exam!
Challenging but worth it! I did have to use supplemental tools to aid in my learning but that may not be the case for everyone.
