Calculus 2 continues with the mathematical study of change first introduced to students during Calculus 1. The course covers integration, applications of integration, and series, while also reviewing and expanding upon concept introduced in Calculus 1 such as limits and derivatives. It is predominantly a college-level math course, with most students who take the course doing so during either their freshman or sophomore year. As Calculus 2 is a continuation of Calculus 1, it is recommended that students take the two courses in back-to-back years. Although Calculus 2 is typically not a required college course, it is highly recommended for students majoring in math or any other field which requires advanced mathematical concepts, such as engineering, physics, or economics. Whether you need Calculus tutoring in Atlanta, Calculus tutoring in Houston, or Calculus tutoring in San Francisco, working one-on-one with an expert may be just the boost your studies need.
The Varsity Tutors’ free Learn by Concept Learning Tool offers study material for students who need Calculus 2 study help or are simply looking to review the subject. The Learning Tool is set up like an interactive syllabus with a series of units and topics covering Calculus 2 in comprehensive detail. Clicking on any topic brings you to a series of multiple-choice example questions. You can then look through the sample question and possible answers, work through the problem, and choose the answer that you believe is correct. The correct answer is provided below the choices, allowing you to check and see if your answer was correct. Varsity Tutors offers resources like free Calculus II Practice Tests to help with your self-paced study, or you may want to consider an Calculus II tutor.
Just providing questions and answers would be helpful, but the Learn by Concept tool does more. A detailed, step-by-step description of how to arrive at the correct answer is provided with every example question, helping to simplify the problem. These descriptions show each equation, concept, and theory that applies to the problem, whether it be taking a derivative of a function or simply rewriting an equation. If you got an answer wrong, you can figure out where you misstepped, and what you need to do in order to get the question correct in the future. If you got the answer correct on the first try, you can check your work to make sure you understand why your answer was correct.
Whether you’ve just started Calculus 2 or are preparing for the final exam, you can use the Learn by Concept tool as a study guide. The tool covers the broad units of Derivatives; Integrals; Limits; Parametric, Polar, and Vector; and Series in Calculus. It also goes into specifics in each category. You can go through an entire unit at once, or focus on a single topic or subtopic. With thousands of Calculus 2 sample questions in the Learning Tools database, every possible subject is covered. In addition to the Calculus II Help Section and Calculus II tutoring, you may also want to consider taking some of our Calculus II Flashcards.
The Learn by Concept tool is best when used along with the other Learning Tools. Taking a free Full-Length Practice Test will help you determine which Calculus 2 topics you already know, and what you should focus your studying on. After taking one of the hundreds of free topic-focused Calculus 2 Practice Tests, you may also use the Flashcards for the same topics. Both the practice tests and flashcards can be sorted by category or customized for your own needs. Using the Question of the Day tool on a daily basis will give you a random question from all Calculus 2 topics, helping you to understand your overall subject knowledge. Use the Learning Tools to stay organized as part of your Calculus 2 preparation.
