Course 6
Calculus Course

Description: This Introduction to Calculus course in 18 video lessons offers a very easy and natural way to understand and apply the techniques of a subject that is usually considered difficult. Only a knowledge of simple graphs, gradients and basic algebra is required (so children can, and have, taken this course).

Note: the last four lessons are there to prepare the student for parts of later courses (the Advanced Diploma and Applied Maths courses).

- 100% online, and self-paced: the course is always open and anyone can join
- Courses are available world-wide
- Prior knowledge of Vedic Mathematics is not required
- 18 video lessons
- A trainer is available to answer questions
- Regular tests and discussion forum
- A certificate for those who pass

    Course Content:

    1 Growth and Limits
      * Different types of growth.
      * How limits can be used in mathematics.
      * What is meant by the gradient of a curve
    2 Gradient of a Secant
      * What is meant by gradient of a secant
      * How to work it out
      * And a simple way to get the answers more easily
    3 Gradient of a Tangent
      * How to use previous result to get a simple formula for the gradient at any point on any parabola
    4 Optimisation
      * How to find maximum and minimum values using calculus
      * How to use calculus to help sketch curves
      * Practical examples
      * How to form your own equation and optimise
    5 Cubics and Beyond
      *  We extend the method to cubic and higher order equations.
      *  The second derivative
    6 Negative Powers
      *  How to find gradients when the power is negative
    7 Fractional Powers
      *  How to find gradients when the power is a fraction.
    8 Ratio of Gradients
      * We see that  for the curves y = ax^n there is a ratio of gradients that is equal to the power, n.
      * And how we can use that ratio to get gradients.

      * What integration is
      * What the 'constant of integration' is and how to find it
      * The quick way to integrate
      * The symbol for integration
      * How to integrate a series of terms
    12 Integration and Area
      * How integration and areas are connected
      * How we can use the integration notation to describe areas
    13 Motion
      * How a formula can give positions, speeds and accelerations
      * How these formulae are related through differentiation and integration
