Aid for Calculus

Aid for Calculus

This site contains over 300 sample problems in calculus and precalculus accompanied by detailed solutions. Most of these problems open into resizable frames with text and graphics, but quite a few are presented as step-by-step Java applets. Two methods of searching for content are available: 1) by typical calculus course topic order; and 2) by an alphabetical listing. Glossaries and an appreciable review of algebra round out this extensive online tutorial site.

The rule for the vertical line test to determine if a graph is a function needs to be reworked. A graph is a function if and only if a vertical line passing through the graph intersects the graph at only one point-- or reword it something like that- the illustration is good but the wording needs to be redone.
