Let Patty Leitner lead you through the mysteries of Calculus in *Patty's Calculus Videos*. Take each logical step along with her and watch the central ideas of calculus unfold. Her prize-winning teaching has been praised as amazingly clear by decades of students. Patty's Math Class. Because math should make sense.

There are** 47 videos **organized into four playlists: 1. **Limits**, 2. **Derivatives**, 3. **Applications**, 4. **Integrals**.

Click any of the playlist titles to go to that page, or go to the **patty's playlists page**.

* 1. LIMITS *An introduction to the concept of limit. What do function output values 'approach' when the input variable gets 'close' to some number? What about infinity?

* 2. DERIVATIVES *The derivative is the central concept in calculus. Patty explains the definitions and computational techniques for finding the derivative of a function.

*3. APPLICATIONS * *"**But what is it good for?" *is the question on some students' minds. Well-chosen applications illustrate how derivatives are used to solve interesting problems!

** 4. INTEGRALS **are in some sense the opposite of derivatives. Patty shows you how the 'anti-derivative' can actually help to compute the area under a curve y = f(x).
