What is Calculus?

Calculus is a word that most of us know when we see. However, many of us don't know exactly what it is. On a broad level, calculus can be thought of as the mathematical study of change and motion. Compare this to geometry, which is the study of shape, and algebra, which is the study of generalizations of arithmetic operations. Calculus is a unique mathematical field in that it combines three distinct subjects into one. Calculus utilizes key principles from the fields of algebra, trigonometry, and geometry, and takes those principles a few steps further.

There are two main branches of calculus. The first is called differential calculus, and the second is called integral calculus. There are a few key differences between these two branches of calculus that help to distinguish them from one another. Integral calculus focuses primarily on things like the accumulation of quantities as well as the areas under and between curves. Differential calculus, on the other hand, deals with things like instantaneous rates of chances as well as slopes of curves.

The history of modern calculus can be traced all the way back to the late 17th century. This is when the subject area was first developed by famous mathematical figures like Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. While the late 17th century marks the spawn of modern calculus, the subject has roots that trace back much further. In fact, calculus can be dated all the way back to ancient Greek times, as well as to places like ancient China and the early Middle East.

Learning Calculus

As mentioned in the preceding section, calculus is a challenging subject because it combines key topics from several different mathematical disciplines. This means that students don't start studying calculus until later on in their mathematical journey. Some high school students take calculus but it's generally not a required subject to graduate. If you do end up taking calculus in high school, then you likely won't take it until either your junior or your senior year depending on how you're progressing in other math courses.

A successful calculus education requires a solid understanding of a number of challenging topics. When you start studying calculus, you'll begin learning about these things. For example, college calculus students will spend time studying things like limits, derivatives, differential equations, antiderivatives, trigonometric substitution, and a handful of key calculus rules, among other things. If you're taking a college calculus class and are struggling to fully understand one of the topics that you're learning about, then working with a calculus tutor could be right for you. Working with calculus tutors gives students the opportunity to focus on their specific problem areas and to get an expert's help with turning those problem areas into strengths.

If you're a college student, then you may have to take calculus even if you don't plan on majoring in a mathematics-related field. There are a large number of degree programs that usually require students to take one or more calculus courses in order to satisfy the degree requirements. For example, students who are majoring in business, accounting, chemistry, statistics, economics, computer science, and more may have to take calculus while in college. Taking a challenging math course like calculus can be an even harder thing to do if you're not a student who plans on majoring in math. If you find yourself in this situation, then you should strongly consider signing up for calculus tutoring to make sure that you don't fall behind while taking your required calculus classes.

Careers That Use Calculus

Learning calculus isn't just something that you might have to do to earn your degree. Possessing a solid set of foundational calculus skills is something that can help you in a variety of careers. For example, you could use your calculus skill set to work as a civil engineer. Or, perhaps you're more interested in becoming a meteorologist. These professionals also often use their calculus abilities to do things like predicting the weather more accurately. Other careers that involve calculus skills are software development, video game programming, and chemical engineering, among others.

If you want to work in an industry that requires a decent amount of calculus knowledge, then you'll want to make sure that you get a lot out of your calculus courses in school. Doing this will ensure that you develop the foundational skill set that you'll want to have as a working professional in these industries. If you're feeling like you aren't totally prepared to use calculus in the workplace, then consider getting started with calculus tutoring. You can work with an expert who can help you develop the calculus skills that mathematics professionals use in their daily work.

How Does Calculus Tutoring Work?

If you're interested in getting help with your calculus learning pursuits, then you're probably also wondering how the tutoring process actually works. The quickest way to find a private calculus instructor is by reaching out to Varsity Tutors directly. Once you do that, we can begin working towards finding you an educator to work with. We'll start by getting to know you and things about you like your scheduling obligations, existing academic skill set, and calculus goals.

From there, we can start working towards matching you with the right instructors for your specific needs. During this process, we'll make every effort to get you set up with instructors who can address your educational goals as well as your scheduling requirements. This means that it's a realistic possibility for even the busiest students to get started with a private calculus instructor.

Once you're connected with your educator, you'll be able to start working with them quickly. You can meet with them in a one-on-one setting on a powerful virtual learning platform. Your instructor will also take a brief amount of time to address your calculus problem areas. Then, they can devise a customized learning plan that is targeted specifically with your growth in mind. You'll be able to work through each of these lessons at your own pace. Your instructor will be there to guide you through every lesson and you can stop to ask them for additional guidance whenever you need it.

Calculus tutors can also help their students prepare for challenging tests. If you have a difficult calculus exam coming up, then your work with a private instructor can help you prepare for it in a more efficient and effective manner. Your educator can set you up with practice tests and sample problems that replicate the type of work that you'll be asked to do on the day of your exam. This gives you the opportunity to practice and address any issues that come up during the process.

Your instructor can even help you work on your general test-taking skills while working with you during the test preparation process. For example, if you're someone who's struggled with test anxiety in the past, they can show you relaxation techniques that you can use to overcome it if it happens again. This can make it easier to focus on the task at hand while taking your exam and may help you feel more confident. Your educator can also show you how to manage your time more effectively while taking tests with restrictive time limits. Finally, they'll also model what an ideal test preparation plan looks like so that you know what to do in the future. Thus, you can get a well-rounded learning experience when you sign up for calculus test preparation assistance.

How Can You Get Started?

Calculus is a challenging mathematics topic. However, it is utilized in a wide variety of degree programs and professional careers. This means that it's important to have a strong understanding of core calculus principles no matter what industry you plan on going into for employment. If you'd like some help with your calculus learning pursuits, then consider reaching out to Varsity Tutors today.
